How does it work?

  • Weight alone does not correctly reflect the effects of exercise and improved results of diet. Changes in muscle and fat mass are vital to understand the body’s true composition. Based on this, the InBody 570 Test utilizes its patented technologies to show segmental body fat and muscle distribution percentages as well as the body water balance.

 

Technology

  • Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) that depends on measuring the impedance of the body to an applying micro-currents and then measure the voltage drop. After that the Body water, Fat Free Mass and other body components can be obtained.
  • InBody overcome the conventional BIA with the following four technologies:

    1. Direct Segmental Measurement (DSM-BIA)
  • It consider the human body as 5 cylinders (Right Arm , Left Arm, Trunk, Right Leg, Left Leg) which are different in width & length & measure the impedance of each part separately & accurately. 
  • This also allow accurate measurement of the trunk impedance which very small and any small change/error in its measurement will affect its measured mass & the whole body mass.

    2. Multi-frequency Electric Currents
  • For accurate results of total body water, InBody 570 uses two different frequencies (5kHz, 50kHz, 500kHz). The low frequencies allow accurately measuring of the extracellular water and high frequencies allow accurately measuring of the intracellular water.

    3. Eight-Point Tactile Electrodes with Thumb:
  • Allow segmental analysis & the ability to repeatedly start measurement at a fixed point regardless where the electrodes are placed which increase the accuracy and reproducibility of the results.

    4. No Use of Empirical Estimation
  • InBody 570 uses only the impedance rather than relying on empirical estimations which are based on the averages of statistical data such as age or gender..etc.

 

 

 

Applications:

1. Accurate obesity diagnosis:

Without considering BMI and focus on the percentage of body fat, you can distinguish exactly between the obese examinee and the examinee who is overweight due to their high muscle mass.


Height= 178 cm, Weight= 87kg, BMI= 27.5kg/m2

2. Body Shape & Fitness evaluation

 Allow you to evaluate and control segmental fat mass or muscle mass.

3. Health Evaluation Tool

As any increase/ decrease in body components such as body water, minerals, proteins, fat,…etc. may be an indicator of a health problem such as Diabetes, Edema, Malnutrition, Sarcopenic Obesity, Osteporosis...etc.

4. Balance Assessment of upper, lower & upper-lower body

This could be helpful for describing suitable exercise/rehabilitation/physical program.

FAQ’s

 Why do I have to use a body composition analyzer?

Body composition refers to the components of our body (Water, Fat, Proteins and Minerals) and the summation of these components is our body weight.  A body composition analysis means to analyze the amount of these components to:

  1. Get an accurate obesity diagnosis and nutrition plan.
  2. Evaluate and control fat mass or muscle mass.
  3. Evaluate your patient’s health through measuring the increase/ decrease of these body components which may be an indicator health problem.
  4. Assessment of the Body Balance for describing suitable exercise/rehabilitation/physical program.

 

 What is the technology used by InBody?

Among many methods of body composition analysis, the one used by the InBody is the Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) that depends on measuring the impedance of the body to an applying micro-currents and then measure the voltage drop. After that the Body water, Fat Free Mass and other body components can be obtained.

Is BIA accurate?

People have been very skeptical about BIA instrument and its results.  However, the InBody has overcome the limitations that old BIA equipment with its four unique technologies which are Multi-Frequency, Direct Segmental Analysis, 8-Point Tactile Electrodes and No Use of Empirical Estimation.

 What is the difference between InBody and other body composition analyzers? What are the major technical advantages of the InBody compared to conventional BIA devices?

  1. High accuracy which is clinically proved with 99% correlation with DEXA.
  2. Direct Segmental Measurement for accurate measurement of the trunk impedance & whole body impedance & mass.
  3. Uses Multi-frequency for accurate measurement of body water.
  4. No Use of Empirical Estimations
  5. Reproducibility due to the use of Eight-Point Tactile Electrodes that guarantee the measurements at a fixed point.

 

 What can I do with InBody? How can I use it in my daily life?

Not only patients who suffer from edema, dialysis, or obesity need InBody.  InBody also can be used in other medical fields, and other industries such as sports, academic, nutrition, and much more.

 Is BMI enough to diagnose obesity?

The Body Mass Index is one of the well-known old methods to diagnose obesity.  It is used to evaluate weight in relation to height.  According to BMI, however, athletes or muscular individuals would always be obese due to their heavy muscle.  Those sarcopenic (lack of muscle) with a great amount of fat would not be identified as being obese.  Therefore, for the true diagnosis of obesity, you need to check percent body fat with the InBody.

 What is the difference between InBody models, which one is the best for me?

The InBody series have a variety of functions and provided data.  Not everyone needs to use the full function models.  It just depends on your needs and usage.

 Why I have to use the InBody Tissues before testing? Do socks and shoes really need to be removed?

  • The InBody Tissues increase electrical conductivity where the hand and feet electrodes make contact with the skin.  Without the InBody Tissues, it could be difficult for the electrical currents to penetrate through severe calluses or hard skin on the hands or bottom of the feet.
  • Yes, it is important that the feet are bare and free from any socks, shoes, or stockings that may increase contact resistance of the electrical current penetrating at the contact points.

 

What can affect the accuracy of measurements?

Hydration status which is affected by Sauna, Hot Showers, Exercising, Eating or drinking…etc can affect the accuracy of body water and the whole measurements. But as long as the conditions are kept the same every time, it will give consistent results.

Also accessories such as bracelet, necklace and watch may interfere with electrical conductivity. 

 Are there any types of people who should not use InBody?

  • People with implanted defibrillators or pacemakers should not use Although a very low electrical signal is applied through the body, it may affect these equipment’s functions.
  • Women during their menstruation will not get accurate results due to subtle changes in their body water.

Is InBody safe for pregnant women?

  • Yes, it is safe for pregnant women. However, due to the change in their water content, some of the results may not be accurate.  Moreover, during the first three months of pregnancy, they should consult their physician prior the test.

    I抦 impressed, I have to say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that抯 each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you've hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I'm very blissful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing relating to this.
