THE INBODY ANALYSIS - EXCLUSIVELY FROM BEAT DIETICIANS
As you may know, assessing the health of your body goes beyond weight, and both the scale and your body-mass index (BMI) can be misleading. So when it comes to assessing the health of your body, we at BEAT Dieticians use the InBody scale.
The InBody scale breaks down your body's composition with exceptional precision, giving a picture of your body in terms of four components: fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water.
What is the InBody scale?
The InBody scale is a specialised scale that provides a comprehensive view of the entire body in terms of composition, not just weight. Since water, proteins, minerals and body fat are key factors to determine overall health, the InBody scale allows us to analyse these components, giving us the status of the body in terms of health.
How does the InBody scale work?
The InBody scale uses a direct segmental multi-frequency- bioelectric analysis method (DSM-BIA) - which is a quantitative analysis, to measure the body's composition. By sending multiple electrical voltages through the inner body, six readings can be obtained by the test, giving us as your dieticians a good look at the health status of your body.
What do the results tell us?
Well, they essentially tell us what you're made of! These results tell us your fat percentage, whether you have an adequate amount of skeletal muscle mass in your body, your visceral fat level, basal metabolic rate and many more. These results then act as a guide to help us achieve your goals.
