Patented Near-Infrared
Technology -- Only From Futrex
Single Site Measurement -- How Does It Work?
Futrex offers the only method of measuring body fat that uses completely safe, Near-Infrared light to directly
measure percent body fat. U.S. Government research located a single point on the human body - the middle of
the biceps of the dominant arm - that has a direct correlation with the body’s overall fat level.

Near-IR Light
During operation, the Futrex Light Wand sends a
safe, Near-Infrared light beam into the biceps of the
dominant arm at specific wavelengths that fat will
absorb and lean mass will reflect. The light absorp-
tion is measured by the FUTREX-5500 to determine
body fat -- it’s that simple!
Test results, which are traceable to underwater
weighing, are instantly shown on the unit’s easy-
to-read LCD display, and are also printed out for
your clients to take with them.

Medical professionals world wide
from physicians to physical thera-
pists to cardiologists to chiropractors
have put the FUTREX to work for
their practices. Consider the
following testimonial that originally
appeared in a major chiropractic
By using the (FUTREX) and its
evaluation of a patient’s condition
relative to body fat and desirable lean
body mass, it is easy for our nutrition-
ists to devise a program that encour-
ages our patients to lose body fat
while maintaining or even increasing
muscle mass and strength.
And by monitoring our patients
progress with detailed printouts, we
can demonstrate to them how they are
doing graphically; what adjustments
need to be made, how they can
improve and, of course, if they are
failing with their nutritional program.
Body fat analyzers, in promoting our
practice, have contributed signi-
cantly to the growth of our practice,
and I believe, to the health of our
patients. We started with one of the
rst machines available, in the
1980s, then added two more at the
beginning of the 1990’s. We recently
bought three more.
Do I believe in these machines? I
certainly do and so will you if you put
them to work in your practice.”
