What Is A Body Composition

Scan?

A Body Composition Scan serves as an invaluable screening tool, offering insights into the composition of our bodies. Beyond merely identifying fat, muscle, bone, and other essential components, this scan delves deeper into understanding the percentages of each element, which significantly influence our overall health and well-being.

A Body Composition Scan provides a comprehensive breakdown of fat, bone, muscle, and water content within the body, offering valuable insights into key health indicators. By revealing metrics like visceral fat accumulation, which poses risks for conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, this test enables proactive health management.

With these valuable insights, individuals can implement targeted lifestyle adjustments to rebalance their body composition, fostering improved health and fitness outcomes.

What are the Benefits of a Body Composition

Scan?

A Body Composition Scan offers numerous benefits, providing a detailed and accurate assessment of how our bodies are composed. Unlike traditional weight measurements, which may not reflect the true distribution of fat and muscle, this scan offers a comprehensive view of various body components, including muscle mass, fat percentage, and more.

By gaining insight into these percentages, individuals can obtain a more precise evaluation of their health and fitness status, enabling them to make informed decisions about their lifestyle, nutrition, and exercise regimen.

A Body Composition Scan can be beneficial for:

  • Monitoring muscle mass and fat percentages for athletes in training
  • Fat percentage analysis for individuals on a weight loss journey
  • Measuring amounts of visceral fat around organs which could increase the risk of certain health conditions
  • Calculating BMI (body mass index) to determine if you are a healthy weight for your height
  • Estimating BMR (basal metabolic rate), the amount of calories your body needs to function at rest
  • Evaluating body water composition and the fluid balance of the body
  • Measuring hydration status
  • For older adults, assessing any changes in muscle mass
  • Estimating bone mineral mass
  • Calculating your metabolic age

What Does a Body Composition Scan

Involve?

A Body Composition Scan is a completely non-invasive procedure that involves a safe electrical scale method of assessing body composition. A weak-level current signals through the body, allowing for the measurement of various percentages of the body's components. From bone mass to visceral fat content and beyond, a Body Composition Scan provides a comprehensive analysis of these proportions.

The safe, weak-level electrical signals pass more readily through lean tissues, like muscle and water, compared to fat tissue. As a result, the signal travels more quickly through areas with higher muscle and water content and takes longer to traverse through areas with higher fat content. By measuring the time it takes for the electrical charge to travel through the body, the scan provides valuable insights into the body's composition, offering a clearer understanding of its predominant components.
