Inspiring innovations in 3D body imaging

Body Aspect is an innovator in the field of 3D body imaging. Through its technological developments the company has helped to guide the industry into new territories including sizing surveys for the apparel industry, 3D image assessment, and body measurement services for the NHS. The evolution of 3D body imaging continues as synergy with virtual reality leads to new applications for the healthcare industry.

How we make a difference

NHS Breast Assessment Service

Many Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are using Body Aspect's 3D body imaging technology within their pathways for elective breast reduction and correction of breast asymmetry. Patient acceptance is high because the method is objective and fair, and CCG commissioners are delighted because it leads to fewer inappropriate referrals.

Are you a forward thinking CCG that wants to remove inaccuracy and subjectivity from your criteria for these interventions?

Research into Obesity and Eating Disorders

There is a growing body of research that supports the use of virtual reality for eating disorders and obesity but there is a lack of software available to clinics and clinicians. We want to develop technology that will help professionals with their current approaches, but also be incorporated into new interventions.

The system that we are proposing comprises a combination of 3D Body Scanning + virtual reality equipment + software. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.

Our expertise


3D body imaging can provide information about body size and shape that is not possible with traditional tools: a tape measure cannot measure your volume; scales do not show how your weight is distributed; and a mirror cannot quantify how your shape is changing. Body Aspect thrives on innovation, and the appetite for breaking new ground has led to funding awards from Innovate UK on three occasions.

In the media

When Body Aspect provided their expertise to fashion guru Gok Wan during his popular series "How to Look Good Naked", it was the first time 3D image capture had been used to explore people's self-perceptions of body image. The technology was later used in a BBC documentary on eating disorders and in ITV's weight management programme Slim to Win with Rosemary Conley.

Covid-19 Project

In June 2020, Innovate UK invested £20 million to support UK businesses to focus on the emerging needs of society and industries following the Covid-19 pandemic. Body Aspect are one of 700 successful organisations to receive funding, and our remit was to create a virtual reality tool for investigating social distancing in supermarkets.
