If you’re serious about improving your health, fitness or physique, it’s best to have an accurate baseline with which to monitor your progress. A DEXA body composition assessment – along with advice from your personal trainer, dietitian or exercise physiologist – can provide you with the information you need to help you measure, manage and ultimately achieve your goals.
WHAT IS BODY COMPOSITION?
Body Composition refers primarily to the distribution of fat, muscle and bone, which are all important factors worth monitoring in order to track changes resulting from diet, exercise, medical conditions and/or medications.Monitoring your training progress by weighing yourself periodically provides feedback on how heavy you are, but offers no insight into changes in your body composition, that is changes in muscle and fat. In contrast, technologies are available to assess changes in body composition, that is changes in body fat and muscle mass – traits important to anyone who takes their health, fitness and performance seriously.
WHAT IS DEXA?
DEXA is an advanced technology originally used to assess bone health. In recent years it has become recognised as the preferred method for body composition assessment in research studies where changes in body fat and/or muscle mass are important.This factsheet explains the DEXA technology behind the Medilink MedixDR.
