How does BodyMetrix stack up to the rest?
Studies have taken place using ultrasound to measure fat and muscle since the 50’s. In fact, ultrasound scanning to regulate the body composition in beef cattle has been commonplace for decades.
BodyMetrix uses the same underlying science to produce accurate tissue thickness measurements. Its the most accurate portable way to validate changes to body composition available on the market.

Is BodyMetrix accurate?
To answer the question is Bodymetrix accurate we first need to look at the technology behind it. Ultrasound was first used to measure body composition in the 80’s, yet studies and validations have taken place since the 50’s. Measuring fat and muscle thickness is a useful tool to measure body composition but is Bodymetrix accurate?
BodyMetrix uses fat and muscle thickness to increase accuracy. Several studies have compared the BodyMetrix to DEXA, BodPod, Hydrostatic and Bio-impedance methods.

Why use a peak flow meter
One of the uses for a peak flow meter is to measure if your asthma is under control. It measures the ‘openness’ of your upper airways. The small device measures air flowing out of the lungs as you blow into it as fast and as hard as possible.
A peak flow meter can reveal narrowing of the airways well in advance of a potential asthma attack. They are used by those with moderate to severe and persistent asthma.

BodPod vs Ultrasound (BodyMetrix)
You may have heard of BodPod. It looks a bit like a space shuttle that measures body composition using plethysmography.
Plethysmography measures changes in volume within the body using air displacement. It’s a lot like hydrostatic weighing but using air instead of water.
