Body Composition Analysis – $75
How do you measure body composition?
We conduct body composition analysis using the Inbody 230 scale from Biospace America. Alternatively, you can ask your doctor for a requisition for Dual X-ray Energy Absorptiometry (DEXA) scan and once the results are received, we would be happy to help you interpret them.
The Inbody 230 scale determines lean body mass by calculating the resistance that a multi-frequency electric current faces as it travels from one point in the body to another. The test determines lean body mass (comprised of total body water and dry lean mass), body weight, skeletal muscle mass, and body fat percentage.
Biospace America Technology is the gold standard for body composition analysis and has several advantages over traditional bioelectric technologies. For more information, visit Biospace America’s Technology Page.
