Empowering you to be your best How the InBody Scanner Works:

  • Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA): The InBody device sends a low-level electrical current through the body. Since water conducts electricity, the current flows more easily through tissues that have a high water content, such as muscle. Conversely, fat tissue, which contains less water, resists the flow of the electrical current. Several readings will be taken for areas throughout the body.

  • Measurements: The InBody device measures the impedance (resistance) of the electrical current as it passes through the body. Based on these measurements, the device can estimate the amounts of lean body mass (muscle and other tissues) and fat mass.

  • Results: The InBody provides a breakdown of body composition, typically including metrics such as total body weight, lean body mass, body fat percentage, and water balance. Some models may also provide segmental analysis, offering information about the composition of different body segments (for example: arms, legs, trunk).

Body Composition Analysis for Weight Management

An InBody Scan provides an accurate and detailed analysis of body composition including bone mass, body fat and muscle. Understanding your body composition can help you set goals for weight loss and weight management, identify potential health risks, and allow you to receive personalized recommendations for exercise and nutrition.

Hormones play an important role in body composition because they regulate processes in the body, including metabolism and energy balance, which can impact weight. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management can influence hormone levels and, consequently, weight regulation.
