But, since <a href="https://www.webmd.com/osteoporosis/guide/dexa-scan">measuring bone density</a> requires large instruments capable of performing <b>DEXA Scan</b> (Dual X-ray Absoptiometry), common scales cannot factor in bone density.</div><div><br></div><div>But, the body weighing&nbsp;scales doesn't necessarily need to measure bone density, <b>fitness apps</b> can take in bone density values from the users as they do for height, age and other factors to recommend optimum weight based on bone density. It can come a long way to help osteoporosis, osteopenia patients.</div> 3 points posted by Abishek Muthian /problems/92-weight-recommendations-based-on-bone-density-health-fitnessapp 92 Mon, 24 Feb 2020 02:24:00 +0000
