Inbody Composition

WHAT IS BODY COMPOSITION?

Body composition is used by health professionals to evaluate a person’s weight by breaking it down into its core components: fat, protein, minerals, and body water.

It describes your healthy weight more accurately and provides a better glimpse into your overall health than traditional methods like BMI & weight.

Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, lean muscle mass, and body fat percentage.

Why Is Body Composition Important to Measure?

Most diet and fitness goals focus on weight loss or gain, overlooking that two people of the same sex and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have different body compositions. Measuring your body composition will tell you your own body’s unique makeup and help you identify areas to work on to improve your overall health and wellness.

Getting a better insight into your overall wellness starts with measuring your body composition and going beyond the number on the scale. You will know whether you need to gain more lean mass or lower body fat percentage to achieve a healthy body composition and a better level of health.

How Can BMI Be Inaccurate and Misleading?

You may not have heard of body composition before, but you’re probably familiar with BMI. What’s the difference? Body Mass Index (BMI) is a popular method used to assess the health of an individual by comparing the amount of weight they carry to their height: BMI – kg/m2

Despite the widespread use of Body Mass Index in clinical practice, BMI has many limitations and is a poor tracking tool for weight change because there’s no way to identify if changes in your weight are in fat or muscle. Predicting health or mortality using a single number such as BMI oversimplifies health and ignores important factors that contribute to optimal health.

When you set out to get healthier, you likely focus on losing fat and gaining muscle. The weight scale and BMI cannot tell you how much of your weight loss is fat, muscle, or body water, but body composition can.

iklSegmental Lean Analysis

Get an in-depth analysis of an individual’s fat-free mass. Evaluate if an individual has a sufficient level of fat-free mass in each segment of the body (arms, legs, and trunk) and spot any imbalances between the limbs.

ECW/TBW Analysis

Understand how body water impacts an individual’s body by identifying swelling and other types of water retention in the body.

Visceral Fat and Segmental Fat Analysis

Where your body fat is located is just as important as how much you have. Focus on important areas like Visceral Fat, the type of fat that surrounds your vital organs, and help individuals reduce their levels for long-term health benefits.
