DXA whole-body measurement

What is a DXA whole-body measurement?

The DXA measurement (dual x-ray absorption) allows an exact determination of the body composition and represents the current scientific gold standard. The total mass can be divided into lean mass (musculature), fat mass and bone mass by means of light X-rays (dosage absolutely harmless). In addition, the segmental distribution can be determined precisely.

What are the advantages of the DXA whole body measurement?

Muscular imbalances and deficits can be detected in order to train and balance them afterwards. The exact fat content (absolute and relative) as well as the fat content in relation to muscle mass are determined and can be compared with reference data. The DXA Whole Shape Measurement supports individuals in efficiently reducing fat and building muscle.
