Until now, obtaining body composition data relied on specific devices like wearables or smart scales whereas BVI offers a unique solution that does not require such equipment to monitor health and understand body composition.
BVI technology provides a comprehensive assessment of health and risk, serving as an alternative to traditional health risk testing methods
Over the past 15 years, a collaboration between like-minded professionals who understood the limitations of the Body Mass Index (BMI) has pioneered the creation of the Body Volume Index (BVI) as a new digital alternative.
BVI has been developed, tested and validated by 8 Universities, 3 Public Health bodies, and 5 Commercial Organisations, with recent validation highlighting the improvement of BMI over BVI at the prediction of metabolic risk.
Advances in smartphones and tablets now give us universal access to high-quality digital cameras, allowing this solution to be used anywhere. BVI is now as simple to do as BMI – just two digital images processed in a few seconds now allows more data to be collected than ever before.
