Global clinical research programme launched to develop an alternative obesity measurement system to the body mass index (bmi)
A major global research project, the Body Benchmark Study, has been launched today by UK researchers, which will aim to develop a possible long-term alternative to the Body Mass Index (BMI). Although BMI provides an indication of whether a patient’s weight is appropriate in proportion to their height, medical experts have recognised that a patient’s body shape, and where mass and body fat is stored on the body are factors which need to be considered to more clearly diagnose obesity and health risk in patients.  Body Benchmark will aim to generate a new obesity measurement system - the Body Volume Index (BVI) – which will give patients a risk indicator based on their part body composition and shape, not just purely their whole body mass.
