The Sports Performance community is driven by improving the human peak health & performance through a better understanding of the human body – body composition, metabolic factors, nutrition and genetics.
Professionals and Researchers in the field of Sports Performance pursue cutting edge research and develop customized exercise and dietary programs that brings out the best in their athletes.
Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) technology based Body Composition solutions offers you many tools to obtain high resolution images and precise measurements of your total body and segmental regions of interest such as arms, legs, android and gynoid.
Our technology helps you study body composition trending over time – i.e. how much the lean and fat tissue changes over time, therefore helping you measure the impact of your training or dietary programs.
In addition, our advanced body composition capabilities empower you to measure the lean and fat distribution in the body along with the visceral fat content in the android region.
You can also get insights into your metabolic information through information such as resting metabolic rate and relative skeletal muscle index.
Finally, we offer many attractive reporting templates that you can choose from to display body composition and metabolic information for ease of interpretation and subsequent action.
DXA technology has emerged as one of the most proven and reliable techniques for body composition while being more convenient and easier to operate in comparison to alternative technologies for body composition. At Internal Medicine of Arizona we offer you the best of DXA technology to bring out your best and make the most out of your training, nutrition and research programs.
Obesity is a worldwide problem. As per WHO, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, are overweight. Of these, over 600 million are obese. Besides adults, obesity also affects children.
Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health. Obesity is a complex, clinical disorder with many contributing causes and factors. The condition is often associated with a wide range of medical problems, including high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, sleep apnea, depression, and arthritis.
Childhood obesity is associated with a higher chance of obesity, premature death and disability in adulthood. In addition to increased future risks, obese children experience breathing difficulties, increased risk of fractures, hypertension, early markers of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and psychological effects.
Through our Body Composition Analysis we can study fat percentage distribution in the body and through our Color Coded reports, you can view fat, lean and bone tissue distribution throughout the body.
We can also measure the mass and volume of the visceral fat in the android region of the body. Visceral fat is known to be responsible for many diseases such as diabetes, stroke, and heart diseases.
