The Bovis-scale (Bovis-units) is used by radiestesists to describe the "strength" of a presumed "subtle energy" or "life energy". This unit is scientifically not accepted and has a pseudoscientific character.

The inventor of the Bovis-scale, A. Bovis

The origins of the term "Bovis" is unclear. According to different sources the Bovis-scale is named after a French alleged physicist, radiestesist, inventor and tinkerer Bovis. His first name is referred as Anton[1], Antoine[2][3] André Bovis aus Nizza[4] or Alfred[5], and his bith date is the 12th of january 1871 in Nice (France). His death occured the day 13. November 1947.

The szech radio-technician an pseudo-scientist Karel Drbal asserts in his book The Struggle for the Pyramid Patent,[6], that the inventor of the Bovis-scale would be Antoine Bovis, who allegedly had a hard-ware store and made private radiestetic studies and worked on a esoteric pyramide-energy. On the website "Sceptic.com" a Antoine Bovis is also mentioned.
