Manual Measure Study

Paid Body Composition Study! 

Bookings will be made based on participant availability and schedule changes may be made when demographic requirements are met. As of 10/20 there are NO CAUCASIAN spots available. Thank you!


This short, 20 minute study requires participants to receive circumference measures as well as receive a 3D body scan, Dxa composition scan, and reference photos.

Your appointment will include the following:

  1. Circumference measurements in about 7 locations
  2. Styku 3D scan to create a 3D model of their body, take circumference measures, and estimate body fat.
  3. DXA Scanner will measure body composition (bone/fat).  Please note this is low dose radiation scanning at 0.4 uSv.  You receive about 10 uSv in a normal day and about 20 uSv flying across the country in an airplane.
