Body Volume Index



Every healthcare provider needs to improve and better identify risk, distinguishing those most at need - for that, you do need better data to make better decisions.

BVI, unlike other technologies, does not need a machine, a wearable or smart scales to monitor health and understand body composition. Results are scientifically interpreted by calculating body composition using 3D technology, providing an overall indication of your health and risk, supplementing the more traditional and invasive health risk testing.

How BVI works?

BVI gathers body composition data by capturing a 3D scan of the human body from a smartphone. This is based on twelve years of rigorous testing and validation using the most comprehensive body composition datasets in the world.  Please enter your email address for a more comprehensive overview of our products and solutions.

Who developed BVI?

Select Research, the creators of BVI, have been pioneers of 3D measurement of the body for over 20 years. They initiated using 3D scans for the measurement of obesity and, together with their collaborators, have evaluated the risks to health from having different volumes or weight distributions. Please see below for more information on the development story of BVI.
