Let’s be honest – your weight only tells half the story – even BMI (Body Mass Index) is not a true indicator of physical health. You can be in incredible shape but your BMI could be over 30 which means you are considered “obese,” when in actuality you’re a seasoned weightlifting focused on building muscle mass. The same goes if you’re extremely underweight – a low BMI and low body weight does not mean you are in great shape. You may need to build lean muscle mass for better posture, bone health, or conditioning purposes. The scale doesn’t give you the real insight into your body measurements.
Introducing ShapeScale – a revolutionary 3D scanning device that “digitizes your body shape in less than a minute.” Designed to monitor changes in your body shape over time, ShapeScale uses state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology to panoramically capture a model of your body. Armed with an IR 3D Sensor Head, ShapeScale strategically scans you in photorealistic 3D to give you a visual progress report of your body’s progressions.
Whether it’s body measurement, fat mass, lean mass, or simply body weight, ShapeScale gives you the complete story of your body’s physical condition. Instead of relying on fat calipers and tape measures to figure out body fat percentage, just simply step on the ShapeScale and let its Sensor Head take hundreds of pictures of your body in a 360-degree fashion. From there, simply open ShapeScale’s intuitive companion app and set up your goals.
I think we can all agree that the traditional house scale needed a serious upgrade. With ShapeScale, you can physically see the results of your fitness routine or the impact of your meal plan. Since you have a point of reference starting with the first body scan, you can see exactly what is working and what is not working. You have access to a virtual avatar of yourself every step of the way during your body transformation.
Equipped with a 5-megapixel RGB camera, ShapeScale “captures the realistic texture of your body with millimeter precision.” The built-in technology is certainly impressive. ShapeScale captures every angle of your body with a robotic arm that moves the Sensor Head with 3-degrees of freedom. Rotating continuously around you in a 360-degree fashion, the robotic arm extends from 30 to 57 inches while it scans.
ShapeScale is described as “a fitness companion unlike any other,” and after the first round of preorders were instantly sold out, it’s safe to say consumers have the same sentiment. What better way to keep you on track than having a precision scanner that tells you visually which workout is giving you the best results.
With the second offering of ShapeScale scheduled to ship early 2018, there should be a systematic movement towards using this incredible device as the go-to for those interested in changing their bodies for the better.
