The InBody quickly and accurately assesses a number of body measurements and provides a detailed report to our health professionals. Importantly, it doesn’t make assumptions, or use averages, based on data that we have entered into the machine.
How does the InBody work?
Firstly, the InBody divides your body into 5 segments — left & right upper limb, left & right lower limb as well as the trunk. Your body composition, including body fat, muscle mass, water content, basal metabolic rate, and bone mineral density, is then analysed and recorded. The InBody also reports on balance and symmetry within the body:
- Left vs Right (Upper)
- Left vs Right (Lower)
- Upper and Lower Balance
Importantly, the InBody also measures your levels of visceral fat. This type of fat is wrapped around major organs such as the liver, pancreas and kidneys, putting you at increased risk of developing a number of serious illnesses including heart disease, cancer and diabetes
How can the Inbody help improve your health?
The InBody provides us with a detailed snap shot into your health. We can then provide you with the best advice to help you achieve your goals. Ultimately, the InBody facilitates positive health outcomes, because it allows us to work with you and your individual body composition. We have had excellent results so far and comparing follow up scans has also proven to be an effective motivator.
