College Gridiron Showcase & Symposium Partners with Dexalytics to Provide NFL Teams with First-Of-Its-Kind DXA Solution
Partnership will provide pro teams with a custom database of full-body biometric measurements and data on prospects prior to Draft Day.
Fort Worth – The College Gridiron Showcase (CGS) is proud to announce its partnership with the University of Minnesota-based Dexalytics to create and provide NFL teams with a specialized database solution for reporting and analyzing DXA scan results. The partnership comes on the heels of CGS’ partnering with BodyData which will conduct on-site DXA scan testing at the 2022 CGS. Together, BodyData and Dexalytics will create a first-of-its-kind DXA solution that combines the ease of mobile DXA scanning with the power of the Dexalytics:TEAMS database.
The Dexalytics solution will create player profiles for each scanned CGS participant. These player profiles will include information that can only be gathered from a DXA scan, such as bone mineral density and distribution of lean and fat masses along with performance ratios specific to the Dexalytics software. Additionally, position groupings will be delivered of all scanned players, providing attendees with the ability to organize and target specific players across all positions. This partnership will provide the most comprehensive body composition data currently available anywhere.
This is another example of the ongoing commitment of CGS to identify modern, state-of-the-art solutions based on the best technologies currently available, and bring those solutions to the Showcase.
Dexalytics is based at the University of Minnesota where researchers have a combined 35+ years of experience with DXA and its usability and where the software has been used across several athletic teams over the years.
