Description

The Body Composition scales measures your body composition, the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass.  The test works by sending an extremely weak and harmless electric current through your body. Your body’s total weight consists of various “masses”, like fat, muscles, bones and water.  Each of these conducts electricity in different ways.  By measuring the electric resistance of some of these masses in your body, called “Bioelectrical Impedance” and estimating other masses, the test is able to accurately measure what percentage of your total body weight is made up from each.

Research has shown that body composition is directly related to health.  A normal balance of body fat is associated with good health and longevity.  Excess fat in relation to lean body mass and altered body composition, can greatly increase your risks for cardiovascular disease diabetes and more.  This allows for early detection of an improper balance in your body composition, which fosters earlier intervention and prevention.  Some of what the Body Composition scales measures:

  • Body Water %
  • Body Fat %
  • Muscle Mass %
  • Metabolic Age
  • Bone Mass
