LeanScreen App Introduction and Tutorial
This is an introduction tutorial to the standalone version of LeanScreen. (Please note that LeanScreen is also available as an in-app purchase upgrade for PostureScreen Mobile and SquatScreen users).
This patent pending proprietary technology feeds measurements data for body composition into various body composition statistical equations (primarily those used by US Department of Defense on cadets) in order to find estimates on Percent Body Fat. Additionally, it can also calculate BMI, BMR, and Waist to Hip Ratio. This process of patent pending photographic estimation of anthropometry has never been done on a mobile device until now with LeanScreen.
This support article applies to the choice of anatomical landmarks for validity during Body Composition Analysis. Failure to do so, or erroneously clicking the wrong anatomical landmarks will lead to less valid results.
Remember this is an ESTIMATE of the patient/client’s body composition to be used for education, and not meant to replace more sophisticated methods of body composition analysis.
Please note for an effective assessment, it is recommended to have the client in the most revealing clothing as possible. For example, tight gym clothing and sports top for women is preferred over clients wearing a baggy t-shirt. If the clothes are baggy, we recommend using clothes pins to ‘tighten up’ the clothes against the body, to better reveal the body margins for analysis. The TIGHTER the clothes or minimal clothing, the more accurate you will be and the results will be. Gym attire where body margins are clearly defined is obviously preferred. In the following example, the client is in clothing, but it is still suitable to assess landmarks for demonstrating purposes on how to use this application. For clinical use, tight fitting clothing is recommended for proper, uniform and reliable assessments. For men, tight shorts with shirt off is best. For women, tight shorts with a sports top is recommended.
Recommend Minimal clothing or tight fitting clothing for increased accuracy. The example below is simply a tutorial, and the client being a male should only be in a tight pair of shorts, with no shirt. Women should have tight shorts and sport bra.
