DEXA Body Composition Scan

Our DEXA scanner is a safe medical grade diagnostic tool used for body composition analysis. To have a scan, you’ll simply be asked to lie flat on the padded table while the arm of the machine passes over your body. The scan only takes 3 around minutes!

 Report includes:

a) Total fat %, fat mass and lean mass, whole body and regional areas
b) Classification in terms of fat mass
c) Bone Mineral Density (non-diagnostic)
d) Visceral Fat score and relative risk of heart disease and diabetes
e) Daily caloric need based on your resting metabolic rate and the appropriate activity factor

Metabolic Energy Testing

Metabolism testing involves a 5-10 minute breath analysis, in a semi reclined position. During the test we would like you to relax and breathe as normally as possible through the mouthpiece.

Key parameters assessed are listed below and allows your practitioners to individualise your programmes based on your unique metabolism.

  • Resting Metabolic Rate (Calories) – Is your metabolism fast or slow?
  • Fuel Utilisation (Fat vs Glucose) – Are you burning the right fuels for weight loss?
  • Energy Efficiency (%) – How efficient are your cells?
