6 Scan Day Tips for Accurate Results

6 Scan Day Tips for Accurate Results

 

Like many different types of technology, our Fit3D scanner is not perfect. While many of the glitches that happen during a scan have nothing to do with the person scanning, there are some steps you can take to ensure that your scan is as accurate as possible and reflects your hard work and progress!

 

  1. Wear similar clothing/undergarments every time. If you scan in leggings and a sports bra, always scan in the same style leggings and sports bra. Same with boxers for men! Stay consistent with what you wear in the scanner for the most accurate results. Boxer briefs are preferred over regular boxers so that your leg measurements are as accurate as possible.
  2. Stand relaxed and still! Do not suck in, flex, etc. This will skew your measurements and body fat percentage and you will not receive an accurate reading.
  3. Use the bathroom prior to scanning. This is pretty self-explanatory, but empty your bladder before scanning so you are not bloated.
  4. Don’t make drastic changes to your daily routine. For example, if you usually scan an hour or two after a meal, do not eat a huge meal right before the scan.
  5. Women, try to schedule your scans AROUND your time of the month. Pre-menstrual water retention happens and can cause crazy fluctuations in both weight and measurements.
  6. Make sure that nothing is behind the scanner near the door- for some reason this can cause the scan to fail and you would have to get on again.

 

Above all else, remember that the scanner is accurate to an extent. At the end of the day, how you look and feel, as well as how your clothing has been fitting, are excellent ways to track progress.
