The program can generate many reports summarizing all of the entered data along with indicators of your current standings and progress.

The software provides a complete assessment report indicating body fat percentage and an explanation of your weight, basal metabolic rate and body mass index.

This technology has been used exclusively by hospitals and universities for years and is now available for schools and health clubs.
