accurate body fat testing in singpoare? Dexa? bodpod?

Postby dubplate » Tue, 17 Jan 2012 2:37 pm

Hi Everyone,

id like to get another bodyfat test done this year - and I am struggling to find a place on google in Singapore that offer very accurate testing

does anyone know where i can get a Dexa or bodpod or similar, high end, accurate % body fat test?

Thanks

Google search chucks up quite a few. Try this one: http://www.singhealth.com.sg/PatientCar ... -DEXA.aspx

thanks for the link, but this reads just like the other 2 i contacted - they only do bone density and not % bodyfat. I will email them to double check though

Hmm, that's strange. The machine ought to be able to do this without any issues, so it's only about whether they want to do it or not. If not, have you tried the local university? They often have that for clinical trials etc.

yes, the machine can do it, but 2 places i contacted simply said they don't do this procedure and they cant recommend a place in Singapore that does

weird to me also.

No, i haven't tried a university
