A Paradigm Shift in Body Scanning Technology
MYE Fitness Technologies is one of the industry’s largest suppliers of OEM/ODM design and manufacturing services. They provide highly advanced app technology and state-of-the-art cardio machine LCD TVs and wireless TV audio receivers and transmitters to some of the largest health and fitness companies in the industry. Their latest innovation is poised to revolutionize in-club biometric services.
MYE recently announced the launch of the BodyScript Body Composition Analyzer. Using near-infrared technology, this body scanner provides gold standard body measurements for muscle, fat, bone, and water. The technology is so comprehensive and accurate for body composition that it’s able to reveal bone mass, muscle mass, lean mass, metabolic rate, total water composition, and a comprehensive analysis of body fat, breaking it down to three distinct types of fat.
“We're giving you everything,” says Tony Garcia, founder and president of MYE Fitness Technologies. “It’s a comprehensive overview of body composition that can be used not just for weight management but also for health management. And the information is easy to understand. You don't want to get too technical with the consumer. You just want to say, here is what this means and here's how it relates to your situation.”
Not only is the information precise and detailed, utilizing the BodyScript Body Composition Analyzer is quick and convenient. The test takes only 10 seconds, and people don’t have to remove their clothes or even their shoes. And there are no meal or beverage restrictions. You can take it any time of day.
“It was important for us to remove the obstacles that have existed in other types of body scanners currently on the market,” explains Garcia. “And you don't need any Bluetooth or network connection. You can place the machine anywhere in the club.”
Using the device does not require certification or special training, says Garcia.
“The education of how to use the machine is really simple. In fact, there's an onscreen prompt that will allow to do it on their own if they want. It's that easy. But it’s still as accurate as hydrostatic testing and DEXA scans. We're in the same percentage range as those tests.”
A big issue with biometric devices of any type is the procurement and protection of personal health data. Garcia says that data security is their highest priority.
