Body shape and size in 6-year old children: assessment by three-dimensional photonic scanning.
Body shape and size are typically described using measures such as body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference, which predict disease risks in adults. However, this approach may underestimate the true variability in childhood body shape and size.
Abstract 215: Validation of a Simple White-light 3D Body Volume Scanner to Assess Body Composition
Estimating body fat content has shown to better predict adiposity-related cardiovascular risk than the commonly used body mass index (BMI). The white-light 3D Body Volume Index Scanner (BVI) is a non-invasive device normally used in the clothing industry to asses body shapes and sizes. We assessed the hypothesis that volume obtained by BVI is comparable to the volume obtained by air displacement plethysmography (BodPod) (COSMED Concord, CA, USA) and thus capable of assessing body fat mass using the bicompartmental principles of body composition.
