Uncover your Accurate Body Composition with a DEXA Scan

Your Bathroom Scales do not tell the Full Story


Our state-of-the-art DEXA whole body scanning system accurately measures body composition.

Body DEXA scan details exactly how much lean tissue, fat tissue and bone mass composes your body and its specific distribution to each region. A DEXA Scan will give a highly accurate baseline to help you achieve your goals, whether you are an athlete, a regular gym junkie or just starting to get into shape.

Why measure body composition?

1. Baseline assessment

Accurate results of your body composition can help you plan more productive exercise programs and create more efficient nutrition plans.

Accurate results can also help athletes improve their performance. It enables them to determine precisely whether or not fat tissues need to be trimmed and lean tissues need to be gained in certain areas of their body.

2. Accurately assess lean and fat mass in individuals

The accurate measurements of your body’s lean and fat mass allow us to identify potential health risks associated with extremely low or high levels of total fat and excessive accumulation of intra-abdominal fat.

The DEXA Scan can also determine your ideal body weight and composition enabling you to design more appropriate nutrition and exercise plans to help you achieve your goals.

3. Monitor body composition over periods of time

How can you be sure that you are losing fat and not muscle? Having regular DEXA Scans allows you to assess and evaluate the effectiveness of nutrition and exercise interventions in altering your body composition. You will be able to know exactly whether you are loosing and/or gaining fat or muscle.

If you are looking for a constant surveillance of your body’s make-up then the Scan Package is perfect for you.
