What We Do

With roots in the retail and healthcare sector, Select Research has undertaken a diverse range of projects, each giving a fascinating insight into the world we live in.

In recent years, Select Research has refined the process of 3D scanning of the human body and applied this to the measurement of obesity and its associated risks to our health. This has been done using the Body Volume System, the foundation of the Body Volume Indicator; a potential alternative to the Body Mass Index. Awareness of this has been growing rapidly, both in the NHS and the public sector, with numerous potential benefits and uses.


The headquarters and the main team of Select Research are based in Malvern, part of the UK's central technology belt. BVI America, the business set up in Philadelphia by Select, has a team managed by Jackie Fulmer, to deliver the body volume technology across the USA.
