There are many instances when it is useful to compare current bodQR body analysis results with prior results. For example, from the start to the end of a boot camp, nutrition program or personal training period.
When relying on bodQR for comparative analysis, it is extremely important that the information input as part of body analysis scans is accurate – most importantly waist, weight and exercise frequency data.
Depending on the circumstances when an initial body analysis is completed, your contact may have estimated their data rather than obtaining new measurements. When this is the case, it is useful to encourage the contact to repeat their scan as soon as possible after taking direct measurements to create a new baseline for later comparison.
Related, whenever possible, contacts should use the same method for obtaining their measurements across all scans – for example, using the same body scale for weight capture at the same time of day.
If measuring change over very short timeframes, differences in measurements may be quite small or difficult to detect, making precision of data more important. It can sometimes improve the accuracy of body analysis results if a professional assists the contact with taking measurements in these instances.
