Body Composition Assessments
How It Works Using Ultrasound
Much of the current research on ultrasound has shown it to be a highly accurate and reliable technique of body composition assessment with some significant advantages over many of the better-known methods. MuscleSound’s Body Composition test comfortably measures body fat and lean body mass quickly giving trusted results using the seven-set Jackson/Pollack Generalized Prediction Equations, one of the most frequently used and accepted methodologies for estimated percent body fat and lean mass by skinfold measures. The system also provides a breakdown of fat thickness at individual sites, as well as a comprehensive tracking of change over time in these locations.
Our system and methods have been validated in multiple clinical studies.
MuscleSound was founded by experts in the fields of applied physiology and musculoskeletal ultrasound. We are continuously advancing our science through partnerships with Universities and Research Institutions.See The Research
