Body Composition Assessment

Body Composition Assessment

from 75.00

Your body is composed of bones, blood, organs, muscle, water and fat. Monitoring your body composition on a regular basis can help determine the most suitable food and lifestyle patterns for you to leverage you toward your desired healthy ranges.

What is Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis?

At Nutrition Simplified, we monitor physical change using a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA machine). When you stand on the monitor, an electrical signal is sent from four metal electrodes through your feet to your legs and abdomen. In segmental models, the four hand-held electrodes will provide extra readings for each leg, arm and abdominal area. The electrical signal passes quickly through water molecules that present in hydrated muscle tissue but meets resistance when it hits fat tissue. This resistance, known as impedance, is measured and input into scientifically validated equations to calculate body composition measurements.

Assessing your body composition offers more valuable insight than just weight alone - it offers information on your total physical makeup. This is a painless process where measurements are complete in under 20 seconds.

Measurements include 7 health indicators:

  1. Weight

  2. Body Mass Index

  3. Body Fat Percentage of your total body weight

  4. Skeletal Muscle

  5. RMR

  6. Body age

  7. Visceral Fat
