CHECK –UP MEETING 1 hour  


We track your progress and assess the impact of treatment by:

1) Analysis of your body composition:

a. Segmental Body Composition: using precision state-of-the-art instruments, we can analyse the distribution of body fat and muscle in both arms and legs, alongside visceral fat and basal metabolic rate.

b. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis: we measure the body composition by sending a low, safe electrical current through the body. The current passes through the fluids contained in muscle, bone, fat and connective tissues. The different degree of electrical resistance as it passes through the body produces a quantitative measure of body composition. We use SF-BIA and MF-BIA to carefully evaluate the extra-cellular water and intra-cellular water. The SF-BIA, at 50kHz, is passed between surface electrodes placed on each foot. This analysis determines the energy needs, metabolic rates, total body water, fat-free mass and fat tissue. The MF-BIA uses multiple frequencies (0, 1, 5, 50, 100, 200 to 500 kHz) to evaluate fat-free mass, total body water, intra-cellular water, extra-cellular water and body cell mass.

c. Skinfold Analysis: taking skinfold measurements is a method to determine body fat composition and also the elasticity of skin which is an important element of a healthy body.  For accurate measurement we use highly-sensitive digital equipment to pinch the skin in 9 different standard anatomical sites around the body.

d. Measurement of body circumferences: we measure specific anatomical sites around the body with a tape measure to analyse your body and general health.

e. Echo-ultrasound scan: through the latest technology of an ultrasound device, we will measure and track fat and muscle thickness to more accurately monitor the effects of diet and exercise and capture scans anatomical sites of local areas to produce cross-sectional images. The ultrasound scan allows us to determine your individual morphological factors in order to make fundamental assessments and develop your personalised diet plan.


2) Report of your check-up:


a. To track your progress and assess the impact of treatment, we will give you a summary check-up report and discuss the implications of the results and the strategies to follow.
