FAQ

Can I try DigiME?

If you are interested in getting scanned, please fill the request a demo form

What is included with DigiME?

3d scanner, tablet, case, hand bag, accessories and IOS application

How much space do I need to use DigiME?

left to right- 4 meter
front to back- 3 meter
3×4 meter is enough to Scan clearly.

Do I have to be naked to be scanned?

No, you can wear whatever you are comfortable with, but for best results, we recommend close-fitting and body-hugging (leggins, top) clothes because folds in the clothes or clothing that is too tight might falsify the 3D analysis.

How does DigiME capture the body in 3D?

DigiME system has a depth sensor uses an infrared (IR) light projector and an IR camera to sense the distance between objects. The projector sends out a grid of IR dots, and the camera measures how long it takes for each dot to bounce back. By knowing the speed of light, the depth sensor can calculate how far away each object is. DigiME then use the calculated distances to determine and generate the shape and size of the object.

Is DigiME 3D sensor harmful?

the sensor which is used in DigiME is classified as a Class 1 Laser product. Class 1 laser products are safe under all conditions of normal use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laser_safety#Class_1

It is completely non-invasive and safe to use with implants and pacemakers. Childrens and pregrants can be scanned by DigiME safely.

Does DigiME FDA Approved?

The FDA considers DigiME (and similar other fitness tracking devices) as a “Low-Risk Device” and does not regulate it for general wellness. A medical device undergoes extensive testing and evaluation because it is used to diagnose or treat a medical condition. DigiME is not used to diagnose or treat a medical condition.

How does DigiME measure my body composition? How can it be so precise in calculating body fat?

It uses volume and weight measurements. Volume measurements are comparable to water weighing, which calculates the overall body fat through predictive models. We use similar predictive models to calculate the body fat of specific parts of the body. There are several scientific researches that correlates the precision of the model to DXA scans measurements.
