Frequently Asked Questions
What is a My Bodee Scan body scan?
My Bodee Scan uses artificial intelligence to predict body fat directly from your waist, hip, and anthropometric measurements. No need to schedule hydrostatic weighing or a DXA scan; Styku is a precise and reliable way to predict lean and fat mass and bone mass.
How does My Bodee Scan differ from other body scans?
Make tables using this info...
Does My Bodee Scan use raidation to conduct the body scan?
No radiation is used and the scan is totally safe on you and the invironment.
Is the sensor harmful or invasive? Can I scan if I have a pacemaker? Can I scan if I am pregnant?
Is My Bodee Scan HIPPA compliant?
YES. Know as HIPPA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act does the following:
Can I pay for MyBodeeScan using my FSA, HSA or HRA?
Can I book MyBodeeScan for a special event?
YES! MyBodeeScan will come out to your office, place of worship, health event, bar, group meetings, etc. for a short-term event.
How are Workouts Defined in the Fat-Loss Calculator?
0 Workouts/Week - Sedentary
Little to no regular exercise.
1-2 Workouts/Week - Light Exercise
Intensive exercise for at least 20 minutes 1 to 3 times per week. This may include such things as bicycling, jogging, basketball, swimming, skating, etc. If you do not exercise regularly, but you maintain a busy life style that requires you to walk frequently for long periods, you meet the requirements of this level.
3-4 Workouts/Week - Moderate Exercise
Intensive exercise for at least 30 to 60 minutes 3 to 4 times per week. Any of the activities listed above will qualify.
5-6 Workouts/Week - Heavy Exercise
Intensive exercise for 60 minutes or greater 5 to 7 days per week (see sample activities above). Labor-intensive occupations also qualify for this level. Labor-intensive occupations include construction work (brick laying, carpentry, general labor, etc.). Also farming, landscape worker or similar occupations.
7 Workouts/Very Heavy Exercise
Exceedingly active and/or very demanding activities: Examples include: (1) athlete with an almost unstoppable training schedule with multiple training sessions throughout the day (2) very demanding job, such as shoveling coal or working long hours on an assembly line. Generally, this level of activity is very difficult to achieve.
The Fitness Tab relies on the Revised Harris-Benedict Equation (1984) for its prediction of caloric expenditure at different activity levels. Examples of what kind of activity constitutes an activity level according to Harris-Benedict are listed below (Source) :
How does the Calorie Calculator Work?
The calorie calculator page gives you an estimate on the calories needed to lose the fat outlined in the goals page.
The BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is an estimate of the amount of calories burned at rest. The Revised Harris Benedict Equation 1984) is used to estimate BMR. This equation uses a person’s height, weight, age & gender to make the BRM estimate.
Caloric expenditure is the amount of calories burned based on your activity level. The “workouts per week” value we set in the fat loss calculator is used to calculate an estimated caloric expenditure. The more workouts and higher target burn rate, the higher the caloric expenditure.
The energy balance method estimates that a person must burn or expend 3500 calories to lose one pound of fat. The only way to lose fat is to exercise and also to manage the amount of calories consumed. By keeping our caloric intake under our caloric expenditure, we create a calorie deficit.
The caloric deficit is the caloric expenditure minus the caloric consumption. The deficit determines the Goal Date.
We can personalize the client's caloric intake by clicking on the personalize tab in the small box, and using the caloric consumption slider to edit how many calories you want your client to consume per day. The less calories consumed, the higher the caloric deficit & the closer the goal date will be achieved. The personalize box also keeps the client accountable as it shows that if they are not eating right, it will take longer to reach their goal.
