The Quadscan is a Bio-impedance analysis (BIA) device: This is a science that has been used for monitoring patients in hospital and research settings since the 1980s. This is cutting edge technology approved by the therapeutic goods administration of Australia (the TGA).
The test is completed in a matter of minutes and is painless. Leads are connected to your hands and feet and low voltage electrical currents are passed through your body. You feel nothing. This provides us with your body composition measurements, giving insight into important aspects of your health.
The Quadscan helps us monitor your cellular health and fluid distribution. Essentially, giving us insight into how your cells are functioning from the inside.
It accurately measures how much muscle and fat you have, as well as how much water you are carrying and the weight of your skeleton. Not unlike a DEXA (or DXA) scan. In fact, it has been shown to be within 1% accuracy of the far more invasive and expensive DEXA scan. All of these parameters are recorded in an easy-to- read report that we will explain to you.
Based on this report, we will be able to assess which lifestyle modifications may be the most appropriate for you.
We are then very easily able to monitor your results over time, so that you can see how your health is progressing.
