Body composition analysis refers to measuring your body composition, generally known as your body muscle, fat and water. Instead of focusing on a single number on your scale, body composition analysis allows you to focus on losing body fat and gaining muscle while retaining the proper amount of body water in specific areas of your body. At Recovery Room we use the In Body 570 Analyzer.
The In Body uses bioelectrical impedance analysis to determine body composition. BIA is a safe electrical current that is sent through the body. As it travels, it encounters resistance due to the variation of water contents in the different parts of the body. That resistance is measured and analyzed. It then provides a report of outputs including body fat percentage, lean body mass and water composition. These are great tools to use on a regular basis to monitor the progress of weight loss, a workout program or any changes in body composition.
The In Body 570 provides specific details on your muscle, fat and water measurements in a full page print out. It evaluates the free fat in each segment of the body including legs, arms and trunk and identifies imbalances. It measures body fat percentage and points out where that fat is located. Specifically it measures the most harmful fat, visceral fat, which is fat that surrounds the vital organs. It compares Extracellular Water to Total Body Water which helps determine healthy water balance in the body. This can help identify water retention. Finally, it tracks your measurements over time so you can use it to monitor changes in your progress. This can help determine effectiveness of a specific workout or diet plan.
