New Analysis Update!
Our Lean Mass Index (LMI) compares your lean mass in relation to men/women of your height. Someone’s lean mass at 6ft tall is going to look different for someone who is 5ft tall, so LMI allows us to compare individuals of different heights. In addition, we have updated our LMI to compare your lean mass to men/women between ages, 20-40, 40-59, and 60-79.
