DEXA System (bone mineral density and body composition)


Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) offers precise, comprehensive body composition analysis including bone, lean and fat tissue distribution, as well as bone mineral density (BMD).

Stadiometers and Weighing Scales (height and weight)


Top of the line Stadiometers and Weighing Scales to measure height and weight to a high degree of accuracy.

SphygmoCor (central blood pressure and arterial stiffness measurement)

SphygmoCor® technology is used clinically for central arterial pressure waveform analysis to better inform blood pressure management.

Bodystat Bioelectrical Impedance Monitor (body composition)


The Bodystat Bioelectrical Impendance Monitor measures body composition by sending a low, safe electrical current through the body. The current passes freely through the fluids contained in muscle tissue, but encounters difficulty/resistance when it passes through fat tissue. This resistance of the fat tissue to the current is termed 'bioelectrical impedance', and is accurately measured by the bodystat machine.

Holtain Skinfold Calipers (skinfold thickness)

‌ ‌

The Holtain Skinfold Calipers instrument has been specifically designed for the accurate measurement of subcutaneous tissue.
