Xscan Body Scan

Our Body Composition Analyzer uses Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) that has a 98% correlation with a DEXA scan across a broad range of population. Our detailed A4 report will outline the following in only 60 seconds:

Tips for a more accurate Body Composition Test

Test under similar conditions.

Do your scan at the same time each day, at the same time after eating and/or drinking every 4-6 weeks to accurately track your progress (i.e. similar clothing, testing time, before eating or exercising etc.)

Be properly hydrated.

BIA calculates your body fat percentage based on water content levels in your body. If you are dehydrated (or overly hydrated) your body fat reading will be affected. Hydrate yourself (drink glasses of water) 2-3 hours before testing.

Test before working out.

Exercise may dehydrate you, affecting your test results. Always test before you exercise.

Test on an empty stomach.

Undigested food in your stomach counts as additional weight, affecting your test results. It is recommended to wait 2-3 hours before a scan after eating.

Empty your bladder before you test.

By emptying your bladder, you reduce your weight allowing for more accurate body fat result.

Coffee and alcohol affect results.

Caffeine and alcohol consumption cause dehydration in your muscles, affecting your test results. You should refrain from alcohol intake 24 hours prior.

Menstruation does affect test results.

Women, please be aware that your menstrual cycle effects your body’s hydration and will cause fluctuations in your body fat testing. Its recommended women refrain from testing during their period to avoid erroneous measurements and misleading progress graphs.

Certain steroids can affect your body’s density.

This can affect the Bioelectrical Impedance value and in some cases can affect the actual measurement.

Breast Implants will alter the result slightly.

Depending on the size of the implant it can increase the body fat reading by around 2-4%

Do not shower or bath before a test.

Analysis should not be carried out after a shower or the use of a sauna as sweat and heat causes a temporary change in conductivity within the body.

Pregnancy and other precautions

It is important to note that body composition results will be affected in the case of pregnancy, breast augmentation, irremovable piercing, metal plates, pins, screws, metal prosthetic joints or where a pacemaker, defibrillator or nerve stimulator are present. Do not scan if you are pregnant or have a pacemaker.
