We use General Electric Healthcare’s Lunar Prodigy DEXA (Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) scanner aka bone densitometer to measure comprehensive, insightful, clinical-grade quality & scientifically validated body composition data points so you can visualize & track your metrics over time, & ultimately validate your lifestyle, health, nutrition & exercise programs.
Precision is Key
Quality body fat testing is based on precision. Without precision when measuring your baseline & comparative analysis, how do you really know what is changing? All methods have some margin of error, ours is just extremely low.

What to expect
After your appointment
Interpreting Your Results
In most cases, you will have the option to have a basic report review, Q&A with a BodyComp representative immediately after your appointment. Unless specific arrangements have been made with the host organization or we have limited help, you will be able to review your report with a BodyComp rep.
Accessing Your Results
You will be able to access your results through your BodyComp account in which you can log into at any time. NOTE: if you have had a scan before, your previous results should already be in your account.
So, how does DEXA compare to other methods?
No method vs. another can be considered apples-to-apples & every method is guilty of having some margin of error. DEXA just happens to have the smallest amount vs. any other method such as hydrostatic weighing (dunk tanks), BodPods (air displacement) & bio impedance (BIA). DEXA completely quantifies 3 components (muslce, fat, bone) whereas all other provide quantification estimates of only (fat & muscle). If your measured muscle mass is off by +/- 10lbs of muscle, don’t you think that is going to play a big role in presumed calorie consumption?

The detailed information provided by BodyComp provided valuable data and the results were eye opening for several of the participants. The results helped to re-evaluate the best type of workouts and nutrition plans they should be following to see results that will improve their health. The team at BodyComp was easy to work with in coordinating the scan date. On the day of the scans they were well prepared, organized and the event went smoothly. We are looking forward to having BodyComp back on-site for another round of scans soon!Jon Garro, CSCS
We at CrossFit Incinerator love BodyComp! It was a great way to stress the importance of Nutrition beyond the normal discussions. If anyone wants to pick my brain, I am always happy to discus my experience with James and the BodyComp team.Jake Worthington
