Body fat percentage can provide valuable insight into a users body composition and aid in evaluating overall user wellness. We have researched and developed our own proprietary method for evaluating body fat percentage based on the hundreds of measurements collected for every scan. These measurements are the basis for the calculation.
If those measurements are off for some reason, then we don't have appropriate information to give you accurate body fat percentage numbers. Hair and loose clothing can cause limb measurements to fail and report as zero, which will prevent body fat percent values from being calculated (ever try multiplying anything by '0'?)
The most common interference we see is from hair being left down and covering the neck. Hair should be up and above the neckline, allowing full visibility of the neck for measuring.
NOT GOOD - HAIR BLOCKING NECK
Hair covering the neck will block body fat percentage numbers and body shape ratings.
GOOD - HAIR UP & CLEAR OF NECK
This allows for system to calculate proper circumference measurements.
If you do find that one or some of your measurements have been reported as zero, then you'll need to try your scan again to get a good set of data.
Good scans lead to great data for you and your coaches.
Happy Scanning out there!
