Body Composition Analysis Technology
Body composition can be measured in a variety of ways. Methods include anthropometric calipers, water or air displacement, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA).
We feature InBody technology, which utilizes BIA; more specifically direct segmental multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis. This patented technology precisely measures body composition by sending electrical signals throughout the body, resulting in five different impedance readings for your torso, arms, and legs. InBody technology has proven to be reliably accurate and highly reproducible.
Measuring your body composition with the InBody 770 is efficient, convenient, and more importantly, safe. A complete test, including detailed printed results, takes only minutes. Unlike other methods, it is completely non-invasive – no caliper pinching or changing into a swimsuit is required. InBody technology has achieved the reputation of being a respected and highly valued tool in comprehensive health assessment, providing the most precise body composition measurements readily available in the field today.
WHAT DOES BCA REVEAL TO ME?
Segmental Lean Analysis
Measures muscular development, and indicates balance among 5 key segments in your body. Can help determine predisposition to injury.
Body fat percentage based on overall body mass. Indicates lean vs. fat content and determines obesity.
Abdominal fat surrounding internal organs can indicate increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Intra- & Extra-
Overall cellular health vs. dehydration and inflammation. These figures indicate nutrient retention in healthy cells.
