What is DXA?
DXA is medical grade technology for measuring body composition. It is used in the NFL, NBA, Olympics, and in college athletic departments. A DXA scan breaks the body down into fat, lean, and bone and shows their distribution within the body.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR TRAINING PLAN
The BodyLogic™ scan can help inform individualized training programs for athletes. Today, university athletic programs are using the Advanced Body Composition® Assessment, available with the BodyLogic scan on the Horizon™ DXA system, to create customized training plans to ensure that athletes are in peak shape for their seasons. In addition to enhancing the health of the athlete, these tailored plans can also help reduce the risk of injury.
Data from BodyLogic scans can be useful to athletic programs, physical trainers, and coaches. The detailed information allows sports programs to review information about each athlete and provide guidance on how best to avoid future or repeat injuries before they happen. It provides the ability to track progress of athletes with previous injuries who have undergone surgeries to understand whether they are losing or retaining muscle during the rehab process.
The BodyLogic scan can also play an important role in assisting symmetrical muscle developments for athletes of all sports. The data provides information on muscle mass and bone density for the entire body, which can be used to alter an athlete’s training program to gain more symmetry and ultimately prevent injury. Once training adjustments have been made, the BodyLogic scan can continue to track progress.
