What We Do

Over the last 25 years, we have managed large projects for clients such as Next, M&S, Lycra and for the UK Government on sizing standards for clothing. 


Since 2004, we have developed the Body Volume Index (BVI) as a new measurement for obesity and health risk. This has involved collaboration with leading healthcare providers from around the world.

The Body Volume Index

The Body Volume Index (BVI) is a revolutionary new measurement, designed using 3D technology to create a viable, modern-day API to measure obesity and predict health risk.


After 15 years of R&D, BVI is a powerful digital tool which calculates, monitors and tracks key health risk indicators - over and above BMI.
