Body composition analysis is used to evaluate body composition by breaking it down into its core components: fat, protein, minerals, and body water. It provides greater insight into your body’s overall health. It can also accurately show changes in fat mass, lean muscle mass, and body fat percentage, so you can track changes to reach your goals faster.
What Is Body Composition Analysis
Body composition analysis is used to measure the weight of fat, muscle, and water in a person’s body. The measurement of these three factors determines what percentage of the person’s weight comes from fat. BIA measures body composition by sending low level electrical currents through the body. The resistance between electrodes that are placed on specific points on the right hand determines how much fat there is in each part of the body.
Why Is Body Composition Important
We use the InBody 270 Body Composition Analyzer which uses Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA). It is a clinically proven body composition analysis method. This can be done by measuring the fat, muscle, and body water levels in your body in just 15 seconds. BIA is a quick and easy way to measure your health for both athletes and non-athletes.
Once this information has been collected it can be used to identify a person’s risk factors for chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease as well as their personal goals that they want to achieve such as losing or gaining weight.
