This is a LeanScreen tutorial - The Fat Analysis Photo Finish. This patent pending proprietary technology feeds measurements data for body composition into various body composition statistical equations (primarily those used by US Department of Defense on cadets) in order to find estimates on Percent Body Fat. Additionally this upgrade module can also calculate BMI, BMR, and Waist to Hip Ratio. This process of patent pending photographic estimation of anthropometry has never been done on a mobile device until now with LeanScreen.
This support article applies to the choice of anatomical landmarks for validity during Body Composition Analysis. It is CRITICAL that you follow PRECISE calibration protocols as outlined in the PostureAnalysis section. Failure to do so, or erroneously clicking the wrong anatomical landmarks will lead to less valid results.
Remember this is an ESTIMATE of the patient/client's body composition to be used for education, and not meant to replace more sophisticated methods of body composition analysis.
This is a one time purchase module unlock for all your devices under the same Apple ID, and then like posture analysis, uses its own specific credits per examination.
Please note for an effective assessment, it is recommended to have the client in the most revealing clothing as possible. For example, tight gym clothing and sports top for women is preferred over clients wearing a baggy t-shirt. If the clothes are baggy, we recommend using clothes pins to 'tighten up' the clothes against the body, to better reveal the body margins for analysis. However, gym attire where body margins are clearly defined is obviously preferred. In the following example, the client is in clothing, but it is still suitable to assess landmarks for demonstrating purposes on how to use this application. For clinical use, tight fitting clothing is recommended for proper, uniform and reliable assessments. For men, tight shorts with shirt off is best. For women, tight shorts with a sports top is recommended.
