Body Composition Testing

Advanced Body Composition Analysis Powered by InBody

Body composition is a method of describing what makes up the body, including fat, protein, minerals, and water. It also describes weight more accurately than BMI does. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage.

Advanced Body Composition Analysis

The InBody Test Will show a true assessment of your body. In less than 60 seconds, the InBody test examines the composition of your body and reveals the percentage of body fat, muscle distribution, and body weight balance, which are key components in understanding more about your body.

Non-Invasive, Pain-Free Testing

Safe, low-level currents are sent through the body via hand and foot electrodes. The impedance that the currents encounter is measured to derive body composition. InBody’s patented BIA technology provides accurate and consistent outputs that are highly correlated with gold standard methods.

Track Your Progress

Taking the InBody test once will give you a snapshot of your body at that time. However, taking the InBody test consistently will give you a timeline of your progress. Watch the improvements from exercise and diet, and do not let your hard work go to waste.

More Than Monitoring Only Weight

Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. It may show no change with exercise and improved nutrition. Your body is a complex structure made up of different components, such as water, fat, and muscle, which cannot be expressed with one simple number.

Learn more about body composition and how InBody Analysis helps you understand your body make-up in this video: Watch the InBody Analysis Video
