If you are on a fitness journey, you have probably heard the expression “You can’t track what you don’t measure”. This phrase is so common because it’s just so true!
Keeping track of your progress is important for both weight loss and muscle building. Knowing exactly how much progress you make allows you to make changes in your diet and workout plan accordingly. This ensures you are always on the right track towards your goals and boosts your motivation when you see how far you’ve come.
In this episode of Unleashed Podcast, host Yuri and guest Michael Glick talk about Styku 3D body scanner to automate measuring and how it can help you with your fitness goals.
How does the 3D body scanner work?
The scanner uses harmless infrared light, which calculates millions of data points of a person’s body. Then, those data points replicate into a 3D image of a person’s body on the fully interactive 3D scanner software.
Using that image, we can measure 21 different circumstances of the body. After that, we break down body composition from body fat percentage, muscle mass, bone mass, subcutaneous fat, and visceral fat.
Compared to other measuring methods, what is the level of accuracy for the Styku 3D body scanner?
Every system on the market only predicts body composition. (The only way to accurately know somebody’s body composition is to do an autopsy.)
DEXA is considered the gold standard on the market, and we have correlated our body composition algorithm directly with data taken from DEXA, which is about 96% accurate.
How often should I do a 3D body scan?
Every three weeks to a month is a good rule of thumb. This will ensure that you keep track of your progress.
What are the other benefits of a 3D body scan?
The scanner provides more precise measurements compared to hand measurements with tape. When people are getting measured, the trainer or the expert might pull too light or too tight compared to the first time they did. This makes the scanner a much more reliable measurement tool.
Furthermore, Styku provides obesity-related disease risk factors. This helps the client understand their deeper motivators to get into a better shape. They realize that when they are shedding inches off their waist, they are also lowering their risk of things like cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, and diabetes.
Where is the data stored after the test is done?
When a client comes in and scans, they will have their individual profile within the software. Within that software, all their scans will populate in their individual profile. This way, the only people that will have access to that information will be the end-user as well as the trainer, or the owner of the system.
With the Styku body scan, you can see your body actually making progress and take the guesswork out of your way. Furthermore, you get a progress report emailed to you after you do a second scan, which is a powerful motivator that helps you keep going.
