The InBody is the most advanced body composition analyzer on the market and is trusted by leading hospitals, universities and professional sports teams because of its precision. Weight alone is not a good indicator of health because it does not distinguish fat from muscle – The InBody divides weight into muscle, fat and water, for each section of the body.
How does it work?
The InBody is a non-invasive, pain-free 60-second assessment that sends safe, low-level currents through the body through hand and feet electrodes using an 8-point Tactile Electrode System. The impedance encountered by the currents is measured, which determines your body composition. While other methods of measuring body composition rely on calculations and estimations, the InBody uses 100% impedance to provide accurate, personalized results.
What exactly does it measure?
This assessment provides useful information in prescribing diet and exercise plans, and for providing a baseline measurement for later comparison. The InBody measures body fat, segmental lean analysis (for the trunk, arms and legs), intracellular and extracellular water, and visceral fat area (body fat that is stored around a number of important organs).
How is this assessment useful?
After your assessment is completed, one of our staff will go through the analysis with you to explain each section and what it means.
All of the information collected will be used as a baseline, allowing us to track your progress as you work toward accomplishing your health goals.
