InBody Body Composition Scanner
WeighlessMD is proud to announce their new and headlining body composition scanner, the InBody. This machine is the quickest and most accurate way of depicting the amount of fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water a body might be carrying. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the wave of the future, and WeighlessMD is proud to be a part of it.
Why would someone need a body composition test? It is the only way to accurately test and identify what a body is made of and carrying in terms of muscle to fat ratios. Without knowing precisely what a body is made of, that ratio is just a guess by appearance, and this can lead to less-than-great results.
In the past, Body Mass Index (BMI) tests were conducted to affirm whether or not someone was healthy. However, if someone is a bit athletic or sedentary, BMI can be misleading. The InBody has a new way to measure the exact body composition of a person, and this is called a Bioelectric Impedace Analysis (BIA). A Bioelectric Impedance Analysis works by sending a small – and safe – electrical current through a person and measuring the resistance of that current (impedance) as it travels through the body’s water. As the impedance is measured, an accurate body composition is obtained.
There is a key difference between the InBody BIA and others of its kind. The InBody is medical-grade and able to measure the entire body. Others just measure the lower half or the upper half, but because of the InBody’s upper and lower body portions, a reading of body fat percentage, visceral fat, body water, skeletal muscle mass, lean body mass, segmental muscle mass, and more, is extremely accurate.
