Tracking your progress is key to your long-term determination to get leaner and healthier. The InBody gives you a baseline of information about your body composition, including lean muscle mass, fat content, and more. The InBody 570 provides more than a tradition body composition analysis by measuring fat, muscle, and total body water. Total body water data, for example, can be divided into intracellular water and extracellular water; these can help determine a user’s fluid distribution. This information provides insight not only into fitness but injury or other possible health risks.
How the InBody Works: Non-Invasive, Pain-Free Testing
Safe, low-level currents are sent through the body via hand and foot electrodes. The impedance, or “resistance” the current encounter are measured in order to determine the body composition. InBody’s patented BIA technology provides accurate and consistent results.
We have patients who’ve stepped on the InBody exclaimed in despair “I haven’t lost any weight!”. Julia prints out the report that tracks the history of weigh-ins and points out a few critical things: your body fat percentage has decreased 5%, while your lean muscle has increased 4%. This transformation explains why you might weigh more but lose a pant size. As our patients watch their body composition changes, they notice strength and energy where there had been none. And the metabolism of muscle working is magic for burning fat.
For athletes, information is key to understanding injuries and developing strategies to correct and prevent injuries down the road. The InBody is used by Cirque De Soleil to train its performers, and help them analyze strengths and weaknesses in different areas, (or “segments,” in the report) of the body. When a machine can accurately tell you your left leg has significantly less muscle than your right, it helps diagnose a chronic injury-prone hamstring, for example.
The story above is just one example of how the InBody made a huge difference in both the life of an institution, but also the difference in the life of an athlete.
