Body fat, lean body mass, and basal metabolic rate are measured and continually monitored utilizing the revolutionary Cornerstone Wellness BC IV, the most accurate bioimpedance device, which is portable and internet driven.
Published data demonstrates accuracy to within 0.5 % of DEXA readings, the “gold standard” which has replaced hydrostatic weighing. The BC IV was developed and tested at USC’s world renowned Department of Biokinesiology, ranked #1 in the nation by US News and World Report every year since 2004.
Using this device allows us to accurately monitor our patients progress and tailor each program so that more fat is being lost at the same time maintaining lean body mass.
