What is body composition?
Body composition is a method of describing what the body is made of. It includes fat, protein, minerals and body water. It also describes weight more accurately than BMI. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage. This can help validate services like personal training, patient care, and corporate wellness.
The Modern Assessment of Health
When you’re thinking of losing weight or simply want to see how healthy you are, you probably do one of two things: step on a scale or calculate your BMI. But the truth is, these methods don’t tell you anything about how healthy you are– all weight and BMI does is compare how heavy you are to a standard that doesn’t fit your individual goals.
When you’re trying to get healthier, you’re most likely going to lose fat and (hopefully) gain muscle. But BMI and weight don’t differentiate between muscle and fat. So how can you? Through body composition analysis.
Body composition analysis is a method of describing what the body is made of, differentiating between fat, protein, minerals, and body water to give you a snapshot of your health. InBody is in the business of body composition analysis, and we’re here to teach you the importance of it today’s day and age to help you reach your health goals from the inside out.
The 8-Point tactile electrode system with thumb electrodes allow measurements to start at a fixed point, leading to increased accuracy and reproducibility of your results. Using multiple frequencies allows the InBody to accurately measure your intracellular water and extracellular water. The InBody uses patented Direct Segmental Multi-frequency- Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (DSM-BIA) to measure your body in five cylinders, the trunk and four limbs. Using 100% impedance, your results are accurate, personalized, and reflect your unique body composition.
