More than half of adults are incorrectly classified obese and overweight through BMI. In the US alone this equates to 54m adults. With the rise of AI in clinical assessment, BVI ensures accurate and efficient prediction of health risk without the need for invasive medical examination. This enables patients to be directed to the correct clinical pathway, ensuring the correct treatment first time, reducing costs and resources.
Access to the largest database of full-body composition data in the world ensures BVI remains a world leader in 3D body composition and health risk assessment. The easy integration of BVI with Electronic Health Records, our data management portal and the big data sets generated through BVI scanning will continue to support the fight against obesity and its related diseases, as is evident in the projects we are doing with the World Health Organization.
The use of BVI as a preventative tool to encourage health monitoring and facilitate weight loss allows patients to take control of their own health by allowing them to undertake risk assessment in the comfort of their own homes and has been proven to increase engagement and motivation by up to 40%.
What is BVI?
BVI uses AI technologies for scientific analysis of body composition by capturing a 3D scan of the human body. This is done by engaging the camera of a mobile phone to body data. There is no need for a second person to hold the phone – scans are captured ‘selfie’ style in the comfort of the users own home and no photographs are taken or stored, so personal data is always secure. The results are scientifically interpreted in the background to provide and overall indication of the applicant’s health and risk and are returned within just a few seconds. BVI can either supplement or replace the need for traditional invasive health risk testing.
- No Personal Contact: Minimise unnecessary personal contact between patient/client and professional
- Track Outcomes: Track and monitor key health risk indicators for a better understanding of body composition.
- No Connectivity Dependency: Our revolutionary technology can be used anywhere – with no need for WIFI.
- Reduce 3D Scanning Costs: By utilising Application Technology.
Leading the race to replace BMI, the Body Volume Index (BVI) is designed to enable individuals to take control of their own health, to live longer and happier lives free from the worry of obesity-related disease. Invented in the 1800’s, BMI affects the risks of misdiagnosis and treatment for everyone. BVI technology uses future tech such as machine learning, 3D imaging and body shape analysis to differentiate muscle weight as opposed to fat, calculated and tracked through a mobile device, bringing health analysis into the 21st Century.
