About Better Body Image
Our mission is to change lives through knowledge and visualization based on real data
Better Body Image Corporation (BBI) is a revolutionary health and wellness company which developed and patented a weight management / visualization tool based on 25 years of propriety research. Our tool is proven to drive engagement and retention in weight loss programming.
The View2Lose app (V2L) accurately predicts and shows a user their full body photo of how they will look with weight loss. Additionally, and it measures and reports waist size, waist to height ratio and BMI. V2L uses Artificial Intelligence to ensure these predictions become even more accurate over time.
The ability to see yourself at a healthier weight has been proven to drive engagement and retention in health and wellness programming.
In three paid pilots, View2Lose achieved 100% engagement among customers interested in losing weight.
In those same pilots, V2L achieved a 70% retention over 6 weeks - more than twice the industry average of 30% retention after 6 weeks.
V2L allows BBI to collect global data on body measurements, changes in body composition and user's images. This data base will be used in concert with other health information to predict risk for chronic diseases and enable preventative measures.
