The Body Volume Index (BVI), is a proposed new and improved international anthropometric benchmark for healthcare and obesity measurement.
BVI is the result of three years of successful and innovative validation from collaborators around the world.
Select are pioneering research on the use of Body Volume Index (BVI) as an enhancement to the Body Mass Index (BMI) to measure individual obesity. BVI, using 3D phototonic technology, is specifically designed to calculate the risk factors associated with a person's shape, gleaned from where the weight is on their body by using part-body volume analysis.
