Select Research is recognised as one of the leading companies in the world for 3D human body measurement, pioneering the use of 3D scanning in healthcare, wellness & fitness. In recent years, Select Research has applied 3D scanning to the measurement of obesity and its associated risks to our health.
Body measurements are obtained by combining a person’s 3D shape with data on height, weight, age, gender, and ethnicity. Your Shape app adds the body measurements to a secure national sizing database, providing retailers with the measurements to create clothes to help resize the nation. Retailers will use the updated data to improve the sizing charts and sizing specification that they use to make clothes for you!
The Body Volume Index
The Body Volume Index (BVI) is a revolutionary, new measurement designed using 3D technology to create a viable and modern-day application to measure and predict obesity and the health risk of an individual. Following 12 + years of R&D, BVI has evolved into a powerful digital tool which calculates, monitors and tracks key health risk indicators - over and above BMI.
