The InBody uses BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) technology to quickly measure fat mass, muscle mass and body water levels in less than a minute. The subject simply stands on the device holding the hand electrodes.
Lauralin Williamson and other health coaches trained in the operation of the scanner will interpret the results and provide a printout for future reference. The analysis measures total skeletal muscle mass, total body water broken down into intracellular and extracellular water, total body fat, total visceral fat, a segmental breakdown of each of the stats listed above (each of those numbers for each appendage and your trunk) and basic metabolic rate (aka – how many calories required for a couch potato?) Bone mineral composition?
