What We Do
We reduce returns, increase conversions, and ensure your customers feel great in your products, thanks to the perfect fit.
Our Verifyt 3D scanning and size recommendation tool allows customers to scan their body and receive an accurate size recommendation in under a minute. Our BI Portal powers your business with 3D body data, so you can improve your product fit and sizing standards to be more inclusive.
When Jeff Chen and Andy Eow met on their first day at MIT in 2008, they realized a shared passion for computer vision, deep learning, and a desire to change the world. They set out to develop a prototype that allowed users to 3D scan their bodies with a smartphone camera, and searched for the best initial application for the tech. After a bad online shopping experience with an expensive pair of running shoes that didn’t fit, Jeff and Andy realized there was a glaring need for 3D scanning technology in the fashion industry, but the market wasn’t ready yet.
The medical industry, on the other hand, had an immediate need for this technology (think: prosthetic limbs, custom orthotics, and cranial remolding helmets for babies), so Jeff and Andy focused their efforts there first. In 2013, they introduced CurveCapture®, NetVirta’s inaugural scanning app for the medical market, which achieved FDA clearance and now provides thousands of physicians across 13 countries with the ability to scan their patients using a smartphone. In 2017, the team developed a mobile app for Riddell to scan NFL players’ heads for custom-fit helmets.
Staying true to Jeff and Andy’s original ‘ah-ha’ moment, NetVirta expanded its services in 2020 to meet the needs of apparel and footwear brands. We developed Verifyt®, a consumer-facing fit technology that allows anyone to 3D scan their feet and full body from the privacy of their homes.
Today, NetVirta is revolutionizing the way the world shops. Our retail-oriented Verifyt® solution helps consumers order the right size, helps brands reduce returns, and enables the fashion industry to better support all body types. Thanks to years of perfecting the technology within the very demanding medical industry and a team obsessed with innovation, ours is the only fit technology you can trust to provide accurate size recommendations. But we believe all that is just the tip of the iceberg. In the future, NetVirta aims to unlock all the possibilities that smartphone-based 3D body scanning technology can offer. From virtual try-on to fitness to the metaverse and much more, stay tuned for what’s to come. We’re just getting started.
