Body Composition Assessment
Whether you’re trying to lose weight or improve your athletic performance, you can get better results with a BodyLogic™ scan on our advanced DXA system. The quick and painless scan goes beyond total % body fat to assess your total body composition, identify muscle imbalances, estimate visceral fat (the metabolically active fat often associated with diabetes) and so much more.
The BodyLogic™ Scan gives you more than just total % body fat. The data can be used to:
Visualize the precise location of bone, muscle, and fat
Create customized training plans and then track progress
Identify muscle imbalances
Estimate visceral fat
Who is it suitable for?
For those on weight management programs, the results may help determine your risk of developing obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and osteoarthritis. The exam precisely measures how much fat is present and where the fat is distributed in the body.
Knowing where the fat is located may make a considerable difference in health outcomes. Too much fat around abdominal organs such as the liver, for instance, can be much worse than excess fat just under the skin as it contributes more greatly to obesity-related diseases.
An Advanced Body Composition® assessment is also commonly used as a measurement tool by athletes in training or rehabilitation to monitor neuromuscular changes and the effects of physical training over time. The results will show how your lean mass and fat is distributed to help you put yourself on the road to success.
