WMAHSN-supported app to revolutionise fat measurement is launched

The WMAHSN is delighted to see the official announcement of the launch of the BVI Pro app, a revolutionary alternative to the use of the Body Mass Index (BMI) in healthcare.

The Body Volume Imaging (BVI) Pro app is the world’s first professional app for body volume, specifically measuring total body fat, visceral fat, waist-to-hip ratio, abdomen volume and BMI, as well as providing a unique BVI health indicator number. By simply submitting two photographs, the Select Body Volume Index (BVI) tool uses 3D technology to measure a user’s weight, fat percentage and distribution. 

It targets visceral fat in particular, which is stored within the abdominal cavity around a number of important internal organs, such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines. Higher amounts are associated with an increased risk of health problems. In the West Midlands, around two-thirds of people are overweight, and obesity costs the UK economy more than £3 billion per year. The Select BVI tool aims to help with early detection of visceral fat, transforming the way that people monitor and manage their weight.
