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.
The ‘Your Shape’ application was set up as a result of the ShapeGB National Sizing Survey, specifically to address the unmet need of body shape data in retail clothes design and sizing.
Body Volume Index (BVI)
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.
