Health Appraisal & Diagnostic Systems HealthQuest provides you with many unique tools for more accurate health assessments, giving you the professional edge.

The overall Health appraisal and Brain Nuerotransmitter Analysis Graphs are generated within HealthQuest.

The associated questionnaires can be posted, faxed or emailed to a client for them to complete and bring with them when they come for their consultation. This saves you an enourmous amount of time during a consultation, and makes it much easier to accurately diagnose your patient’s problem and plan treatment.

Charting your patient’s progress over time allows them to see just how well they are doing with your expert support.

Segmental Bio–Impedance Analysis Wouldn’t it be great if you had motivated patients, excited about returning to check their progress?

Your patients will love to see the changes to their body composition taking place as a result of your recommended health programs. The Segmental Bio-Impedance Analysis system allows you to measure a patient’s physique and inner health, starting with children as young as 5!

This state of the art measuring instrument has four foot pads ensuring better contact and hand held contacts for bilateral and segmental readings giving you superior accuracy.

Measurements include weight, total body fat, segmental body fat measurement of each arm, each leg and trunk area, visceral fat, total body and segmental muscle mass readings, total body water, bone mass and metabolic age.

HealthQuest’s latest BIA system measures much more than competing systems and offers you great value and at only a fraction of the cost of other BIA programs that sell for as much as $8,000.

The BIA tutorials in the form of mini-movies provided with your software package offer you training from the comfort of your own home or office.

Now measuring Intra Cellular & Extra Cellular Water

 

Intra Cellular Water (ICW)Intracellular Water is the fluid found inside cells. Usually 40% of your body weight is intracellular water.Extra Cellular Water (ECW)Extracellular Water is the body fluid found outside of cells.The healthy ratio of Extra Cellular Water and Total Body Water is around 40%. In some cases malnutrition, aging and high fat levels may cause the ratio to be higher than 40%. Athletes tend to have a lower ratio of less than 36%. Continue to monitor this ratio on a regular basis

 

Muscle quality

Are you as strong as you look?

When we want to see whether someone is strong, we often look at the size of their muscles. Someone who has large, bulging muscles must be able to lift a lot. However, the truth is more nuanced than that. Not only the quantity of your muscles is important, but also the muscle quality.

Two people whose muscles are equally big may therefore have different levels of strength. Even within one person there can be differences. The left leg can for example be stronger than the right one. It is important to be aware of this, as that can lead to injury.

Why does muscle quality differ?

Your muscles consist of two major types of tissue. Firstly, there is contractile tissue. As the name suggests, this contracts and produces force. The other type is non-contractile tissue. This consists of connective tissue and fat. Connective tissue keeps the muscle together, and fat provides energy. The more contractile tissue a muscle consists of, the stronger it is and the higher the muscle quality is.

As said, you need some non-contractile tissue. However, if fat levels are especially high the muscle will be less strong and muscle quality will be lower. Ageing also negatively affects the quality of your muscles in different ways.

Differences within one person

These differences in muscle quality are not only a factor between individuals. There can even be differences within one person. For example, in a runner, the left leg’s muscle might be stronger than the right. The left leg then produces more strength than the right one. That can have a negative impact on the stance of his hips and even lead to injury.

Improving your muscle quality

We know that more contractile tissue means better muscle quality. That means there are two things we can do to improve ours: making our contractile tissue stronger or decreasing the amount of non-contractile tissue. Luckily, strength training helps with both of these things. So, even if you are an avid runner, it might be a good idea to pick up some weights.

How do you measure muscle quality?

To keep your body balanced and check if you are doing well, it is smart to keep tabs on your muscle quality. In the past, this wasn’t possible without visiting a doctor. However, technology has progressed and you can now measure your muscle quality at home with the Tanita RD-953  Body Composition Monitor. Of course, it also measures everything our other Body Composition Monitors do. Once measured, it will provide a muscle quality score. You can use the following table to evaluate the result:

Muscle quality score

Male age 18-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-79 > 80
High quality > 74 > 73 > 70 > 64 > 56 > 46 > 39
Standard 49-73 47-72 44-69 39-63 33-55 25-45 21-38
Low quality < 48 < 46 < 43 < 38 < 32 < 24 < 20

 

Female age 18-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-79 > 80
High quality > 68 > 70 > 69 > 67 > 61 > 54 > 50
Standard 48-67 48-69 45-68 41-66 34-60 26-53 22-49
Low quality < 47 < 47 < 44 < 40 < 33 < 25 < 21
