    Pros: 

    Use the camera to get measuremnets

    Cons: 

    The annotation process

    It’s quite cool that you acctually can track and measure the body as part of the morning routine or after the gym session. I like the new versions focus on BF% or Total Inches, that makes it frel like that bathroom scale experience but with the mirror instead.

    After taking the automatic pics there is a validation to pin the points to the body. It‘s good to acctually see where the measurements are taken and I understand that it’s also needs to pin the location exactly. I hope that this step gets more automatic eith time..

    But overall a great app solving body measurements much better that anything I’ Seen before.

    Jørgen Damgaard-Hansen has used this product for one month.

@peter_falk Interested to know how this works? 🤔

@aaronoleary Hi Aaron, we use our patent method to calibrate the mirror selfies so that we have the image in true size (regardless of distance and angle) then we're running it through a neural network to extract the dimensions and from that the Body Fat %

@peter_falk That sounds really interesting! It's so cool to see the advancement of imaging technologies through things like ML and Neural learning! So many possibilities in this field!

@aaronoleary Glad you like it 😄 Yes it's a really interesting time right now where body digitalization/measurements finally can happen 💪

@peter_falk sounds like it’d be even more inaccurate than BIA - have you compared this to DEXA or any other relatively accurate measures of body fat?

I like the idea! Any plans on launching the Android edition ?
Peter Falk
Peter FalkMaker@peter_falk · CEO, BodyBarista
@footer Hi Amin, yes eventually. Image recognition and extraction can actually be easier on Android. But when that is said, we would need to make a catalog of all phone sizes (which is easier with iPhones) and our development is completely native (as we need to have full controll of the camera, etc..), so it will take time..

Have you done any studies to compare how accurate this method is to an actual water test?
Peter Falk
Peter FalkMaker@peter_falk · CEO, BodyBarista
@bwb Hi Ben, @kieranchase asked the same question (DEXA is a little bit more fancy thing now compare to Hydrostatic test) Skinfold measurements and body dimension measurements have the same accuracy and is by many researchers their preferred method (much easier to conduct while the accuracy penalty isn't that bad). It's true that wee are doing some statistical regression before using current anthropometrical formulas (that's why we state it as beta in the app). But eventually the whole body fat estimation will be done on image level directly. With ML on our calibrated images, we are going to be the closest consumer product to the DEXA scanner / Hydrostatic test. About the tests we have done: - Calibration of the images for dimension measurements have been tested on 75 images with human size calibration object - The statistical formulas for BF% are using 7000 test users. We are correcting bugs and recalculate data from time to time. For the last two month we haven't found many errors but please let me know if you find something that looks strange 💪

@kieranchase @peter_falk Sorry not seeing much of an answer :), when you take 20 people and you do your app and a traditional test, what is the difference you are seeing on range of accuracy :)? Just trying to understand how accurate this is.
Peter Falk
Peter FalkMaker@peter_falk · CEO, BodyBarista
@bwb The accuracy of BodyBaristas BF% beta feature is +/- 4.5% (both men and women) compare to skinfold measurements with +/- 3.5% (m) and +/- 3.7% (f).
