BVI: THE NEW TOOL THAT COULD FINALLY REPLACE THE OUTDATED BMI
Shape Magazine have featured BVI in their Weight Loss section,
"Body mass index (BMI) has been widely used to assess healthy body weights since the formula was first developed in the 19th century. But many doctors and fitness professionals will tell you it's a flawed method since it only considers height and weight, not age, gender, muscle mass, or body shape. Now, the Mayo Clinic has teamed up with technology company Select Research to release a new tool that measures body composition and weight distribution. The iPad app, BVI Pro, works by taking two pictures of you and returns a 3D body scan that gives a more realistic picture of your health."
