Novel technologies are currently being utilized in fitness and clinical settings. However, there is not much research to examine the emotional responses to such screenings.
PURPOSE: To examine the group differences between the FIT3D and DXA protocol on emotional responses and the differences between weight classifications.
METHODS: The Body and Appearance-related Self-conscious Emotions Scale and WEIGHTCOPE were used to assess self-conscious emotions and intention to utilize 10 different weight-related coping strategies following the scans. Motivation was measured by a 10-point Likert scale measuring motivation pre and post scans.
RESULTS: There were no differences in motivation, affective response, or intention to cope between the FIT3D and DXA groups. However, participants self-reported higher motivation to lose weight. Coping responses did differ between BMI classifications.
CONCLUSIONS: Health care providers can utilize these individual differences to aid in their clients and patients health journey.
