Body composition analysis
Our Body Composition monitors bring you fast, accurate body composition results using the latest advanced bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology. This gives you a true indicator of your inner health and, when monitored over time, can show the impact of any fitness regime, weight loss program or health goals.
Some of the results that you expect from a Body Composition consultation:
Body fat percentage and body fat mass
Visceral Fat (This is fat that is located deep in the abdominal area surrounding and protecting your organs)
Total Body Water
Physique Rating Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
Our body composition monitors use advanced Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. When you stand on the monitor, a very low, safe 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 that is 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 Tanita equations to calculate body composition measurements. Depending on the monitor, body composition measurements are provided in under 20 seconds.
* People with an electronic medical implant, such as a pacemaker, should not use a body composition monitor. The electrical signal travelling through the body may interfere with its operation.
Body composition monitors are not suitable for pregnant women.
