Executive Health is now able to offer its customers to complement their premium screening with the most advanced fat analysis available on the market today.
Visceral fat (fat in the abdomen), subcutaneous fat (fat underneath the skin) and liver fat are analyzed using magnetic resonance imaging with a technology developed by the Linköping-based company AMRA. Visceral fat is the fat that is located around the body’s internal organs and it is considered to be more dangerous than subcutaneous fat since it is stronger related to diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, etc.
Unfortunately, it is quite possible to have a normal BMI (<25) while having an increased amount of visceral fat in the abdomen.
In the spring of 2014 AMRA won the region selection for the 33 list, Affärsvärlden and Ny Teknik’s annual list of young and promising technology companies.
In September 2015 AMRA won the Nordic Star Award 2015, which was recognized by NASDAQ in Times Square.
On Saturday September 18th the Financial Times ran an article on AMRA in the FT Weekend Magazine.
