Physique Science is now the official DEXA partner for the Brisbane Broncos.
Amie Cox, owner of Physique Science and Target Nutrition, said bringing the Broncos into the Physique Science family was her dream when she bought the business just over a year ago.
"Physique Science now manages the DEXA scans for the Broncos, the Firebirds, the Reds, the Lions, the Brisbane Lions AFLW (Women's team), the Wallabies and the Queensland Academy of Sport," Amie said.
"As a sports dieititian, that is pretty much a dream come true."
Amie said DEXA was the tool of choice for the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).
"The AIS use and recommend DEXA because it is the most accurate means of measuring body composition.
But there are important guidelines for DEXA, especially with elite sporting teams, that represent the standard for best practice, and these have been designed by scientists at the AIS.
We apply those principles for all our clients, not just elite athletes."
