Body Composition Scan
Your scan, using the latest Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology, examines the various components of your body, including fat levels, body water, muscle and bone mineral mass, giving you a good indication of your body composition.
You’ll receive a breakdown of the percentages and weights of the various components of your body: body water, body fat, visceral fat, muscle mass, bone mass, basal metabolic rate, body mass index and metabolic age.
Doctor Cullimore says: “Lots of people use BMI (Body Mass Index) as an indicator of how ‘in-shape’ they are. Although BMI is a good overall tool, a body composition scan which breaks your body down into percentages of components including visceral (abdominal) fat, body fat, water, bone and muscle mass will give you a far better understanding of your overall health and any areas for concern. Maintaining a healthy body weight, body fat and muscle mass decreases your risk of developing various health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, digestive diseases, diabetes and certain types of cancer.”
