DEXA IS THE ULTIMATE BODY FAT CALCULATOR AND LEAN MUSCLE MONITOR.
What is DEXA?
DEXA is an x-ray machine that was originally used to assess bone health. Bone is one of the components of your body weight. The others are lean soft tissue and fat.
The actual DEXA scan takes 3 minutes but we schedule first-time appointments as 30 minutes and follow-ups for 15 minutes to make sure we have enough time to talk about the results in detail.
To see what the experience is like – watch our video to the right.
You can also watch an actual scan that we filmed and shared live to Facebook... CLICK HERE
Why DEXA is the most accurate way to measure your body composition
A DEXA with us at Physique Science can identify changes in body fat and muscle mass of as little as 200-300g.
This is much more accurate than underwater weighing, Bodpod, bioelectrical impedance and skinfold (calipers) measurements where errors in excess of 1-2kg can be common.
