What is InBody Test?
The human body is composed of four major components: water, proteins, minerals, and body fat. The InBody Test is a quantitative analysis of the body composition with an evaluation in the balance between muscles and body fat.

Why do we need InBody Test?
The body of a healthy person reflects a balance in body composition ratio. An unhealthy person may have instability, which results in obesity, edema, malnutrition, or osteoporosis.

 

InBody Test is very important for medical prevention because it is a tool for appropriate exercise and dietary balance. It can also be useful for tracking bodily changes after treatment of various diseases.


Electric current has a different penetration force depending on frequency. Low frequencies travel down the flow of the external surface water and are unable to penetrate the cell wall, thus measuring the water content outside of the cell. A higher frequency will measure the water content inside of the cell because it penetrates the cell wall. By using a diverse set of frequencies, the InBody can accurately measure water contents inside and outside the cell separately.
Also, with the usage of several different frequencies, you are able to provide more information on the body composition because more resistance values are attained. The InBody720 is based on six different frequencies that measure each segment, providing a total of 30 separate impedance values, thus providing accurate body composition information.


When measuring impedance through any type of electrode, contact resistance occurs, and it is important to control the contact resistance in order to correctly measure the resistance in the body.

The InBody uses a unique method of electrode placement. The 8-point tactile method separates the current and voltage starting point, thus measurement always begins at a fixed point in the wrists and ankles. This provides high reproducibility and correct body impedance measurement because the contact resistance from the skin has been removed.

  • Measure up to 38 parmeters within 1 minute.

  • Diagnosis of Obesity

  • Analysis of segmental distribution of Lean

  • EDEMA status

  • Skeletal Muscle Mass

  • Highly recommeded for fitness & slimming centres.


 

Q. How is a skinny person full of energy?
If InBody's Test result tells you that you have enough water and protein that consist muscle, you will not be tired easily because you have an optimum amount of muscle. On the other hand, if you do not have enough muscle mass, you will easily feel fatigue. Moreover, if the lower body muscle and amount of minerals are not enough, knees will get overloaded and the risk of arthritis will increase.

Q. Why do I look fat?
For a skinny and slim body, the ratio between muscle mass and body fat and the distribution of body fat are more meaningful and important than body weight. Since muscles are denser than fat and make you look thinner, people with more muscle look skinnier at a same weight.

Q. Which is riskier? Intestinal fat or body fat?
When body fat is stored as intestinal fat, the risk of heart and blood related trouble becomes a lot higher. InBody Test identifies, not only the amounts of body and abdominal fats, but also intestinal fat in order to help you prevent heart and blood related diseases.

Q. My legs are swollen when I wake up in the morning, is it edema?
When the balance between liquids inside and outside cells is broken, you will suffer from swelling. Through the edema index, InBody Test can tell you about a temporary imbalance of water content and lack of muscle due to fatigue as well as heart or kidney disorders.
