Measuring Body Fat

Here at PRO Nutrition Clinic we are excited to start using the latest mobile body composition technology with the BodyMetrix ultrasound scanner. The BodyMetrix System uses clinical grade ultrasound technology and allows us to be accurate in measuring body fat and muscle thickness to determine one’s body composition.

Body composition is used to measure the percentage of fat and lean mass (muscle, organs, water and bone) found in the human body. Measuring body composition goes beyond the number on a scale and looks inside a person to see what percentage of their body is made up of fat and lean mass. Having good body composition is hugely important for everyone as excess body fat is linked to many chronic health conditions. By reducing body fat and having a healthy body composition you can:

  • Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes
  • Improve insulin sensitivity
  • Promote healthy blood pressure
  • Improve lung function
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Improve the pressure on joints such as on your knees, hips, and lower back
  • Increase energy
  • Increase self-confidence

Put simply, a healthy body composition is a must and will improve your overall quality of your life.

We will be implementing the new technology into our current programs where it will form part of our initial consultation for local clients. We have also designed a brand new program centred on the BodyMetrix system. Our Body Composition Evaluation program provides instant comprehensive reports, including caloric expenditure and risk levels for diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. These reports will be emailed directly to our client. The aim of this new program is to give each client an insight into their body, assess their relative disease risk and provide them with tangible information they can act upon and measure against future results.

During January 2015 we will be giving away some free body composition programs for anyone local and following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
