Description of treatment
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a cutting edge technology for measuring body composition. The InBody Tracker uses BIA – a non-invasive electrical pulse – to estimate body fat and muscle mass. The pulse travels easily through water, blood and muscle, but less so through fat and bone, enabling the device to accurately estimate the amount of fat and muscle in the body.
The InBody Tracker will determine:
- Body water
- Muscle mass
- Body fat
- Bone mass
Results: what you will see and feel
BIA is considered one of the most reliable and accessible method of screening body fat. It measures the impendence or resistance to the signal as it travels through the water that is found in the muscle and fat. The more muscle a person has, the more water their body can hold.
A quantitative analysis which will be emailed to the patient and progress can be checked.
