Styku is a 3D body scanner that creates a digital model of the human body in just 35 seconds. This allows individuals to visualize their body measurements, aiding in weight loss and building fitness goals. During a scan, millions of data points are recorded using more than 600 high-resolution infrared images.

The results from these images are then interpreted to calculate circumferences, volume and surface area for each region of the body. These measurements are used to assemble a 3D body model that can be rotated, panned, and zoomed to evaluate each body part in detail. It also uses advanced feature recognition technology to find detailed landmarks on the body (e.g hip, bust point, etc), which are then used to extract circumferences and measurements for different regions of the body.

Unlike an x-ray or MRI, the 3D scanning process is fast, non-invasive, and poses no health risks. The system is also very accurate, delivering DEXA-quality body composition with medical grade accuracy in a non-invasive experience.

Styku was founded in 2009 by Raj Sareen, who spent his early career as a research scientist searching for new planets and stars. His background in cameras and imaging systems inspired him to create a prototype of the 3D body scanner with 21 consumer-grade webcams, resulting in a partnership with Microsoft and the acceptance into the Techstars startup accelerator program in 2012. The company has since been adopted by numerous fitness clubs, helping them keep their clients engaged via body metrics tracking and visualizing their evolutions and goals.
