You’re wondering how to prepare for a scan with the FIT3D? Here are the important elements to consider in order to start your scan.
*If the scan is done during or before the fitness assessment, be sure to bring a snack.
The scanner maps the surface of the body and reads the fabric as skin; it DOES NOT see through clothing. The circumference measurement will read wrinkles and baggy clothing as excess skin/fat. Even the slightest wrinkles can result in significant increases in circumference measurements.
We take circumference measurements from your neck to your ankles. Therefore, anything that interferes along the way (such as wrinkles from clothing, hair covering your neck, etc.) will negate the ability to accurately capture your circumference measurements.
All hair (short, long, beards, etc.) should be away from your neck. The scanner requires a clear view of your neck (front, side, and back) to capture your neck circumference. Your eyes and ears should be visible to assess your posture evaluation.
Items with a diameter of 1 foot can interfere with your scanning process.
It is not yet necessary to touch the handles. To take your weight measurement, simply step onto the scanner and REMAIN STILL TO CAPTURE YOUR WEIGHT.
When stepping onto the scanner, please align the centers of your feet with the feet on the turntable.
Once your weight has been captured, you will see on-screen instructions on how to start your scan.
YOU’RE ALMOST READY!
When you start your scan, make sure to take short, shallow breaths, keep your body still, focus your eyes straight ahead, and avoid moving your head. Once you press the buttons, the turntable will start rotating.
Please do not move your head or body throughout the entire scan. Be sure to hold the buttons down during the entire scan.
Only release the buttons when the scanner stops rotating and you hear the completion time.
ONCE YOU HAVE READ ALL OF THIS, YOU ARE READY TO BEGIN YOUR SCAN!

The body fat percentage algorithm is calculated using your measurements of height, weight, age, gender, and the circumference from your neck to your ankles. By following the guidelines outlined in its chart, you should receive accurate analysis results. If you do not meet one or more of these criteria, it is likely that the results of your analysis, including the body fat percentage, will be inaccurate.
