DigitalTrends.com - Mayo Clinic-supported app aims to replace BMI with more accurate metric

WHY IT MATTERS TO YOU

BVI has been touted as a more accurate and potentially life-saving metric than BMI, and this app puts it in the hands of the healthcare community for the very first time.

It’s no secret that Body Mass Index is an imperfect measure of an individual’s health — and that’s not terribly surprising, given the fact that the standard was developed nearly 200 years ago. Since then, advances in science and healthcare have shown us the limitations of BMI, but they’ve failed to provide us with an easily achievable alternative that can replace it. Fortunately, a new iPad app developed in tandem with the Mayo Clinic and other global healthcare organizations is aiming to buck that trend.
