BodyScript is an essential tool for fitness progress says CEO

By

MYE Technologies, a US-based tech company specialising in fitness equipment, is set to launch a new body scanner.

Called the BodyScript Ascend body composition analyser, the scanner is set to debut at IHRSA later this month (March), and uses near-infrared technology to accurately track body composition. Users simply stand on the BodyScript platform while a wand is applied to the bicep, within 10 seconds they receive a report accurately detailing their body weight percentage, muscle mass, lean body mass, body mass index (BMI), metabolic rate (BMR) and total water.

Unlike bioelectrical impedance devices, BodyScript is designed to offer accurate results without users needing to remove their clothing or shoes.

"The BodyScript Ascend body composition analyser provides a greater level of accuracy for fitness club members and trainers. In just 10 seconds, subjects receive an accurate set of measurements to establish baselines and tracking," says MYE Technologies CEO and president Tony Garcia.

"BodyScript provides an essential educational tool for engagement and a clear path for health and fitness progress," Garcia adds.

It features patented technology that encodes the results in a QR code, displayed on scaners touchscreen. Users simply scan this code in order to access their results via the free BodyScript mobile app.
