WHAT IS A BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS?
Using bioelectrical impedance, it is an assessment of the proportion of fat to fat-free mass in your body. Bioelectrical Impedance refers to the resistance value that prevents electrical current from flowing freely through the body. As muscle contains higher volumes of water than fat tissue, the current flows much faster. Muscle mass translates to small impedance, whereas fat mass translates to higher impedance.
BIOELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE ANALYSIS (BIA):
The accuracy of BIA varies significantly depending on user conditions (meal, exercise, clothes, drinking, bathing, urination, body temperature, etc.) Therefore, it is advised to remove any misleading factors prior to operation for improved analysis control.
BIA is a method of measuring impedance (resistance) value of the body by sending out several weak waves
of electricity through the body. BIA is best known for:
- High accuracy
- Convenient usability
It only requires direct electrode contact, and just takes only a few seconds to finish the measurement.
WHY DO A BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS?
The human body consists of four major components:
- Body water
- Protein (muscle)
- Body fat
It is especially important to measure body fat accumulated around the intraperitoneal mesentery and the periphery (a broad membrane striking the abdominal wall from the lower part of the stomach), also known as visceral fat (TR). As visceral fat accumulates, insulin is excessively secreted and cardiovascular diseases tends to increase.
WHO IS BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS FOR?
We typically recommend conducting a body composition analysis at the start of any weight loss, weight gain, or training program to monitor progress.

SCHEDULED YOUR BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS
You can make your appointment online below. Should you have any questions, please send us a TXT to 321.395.5529.
- BIA analysis should be approved by medical experts if you fall into any of the following user groups: Pregnant women, or persons who have had surgical operation or ever been clinically diagnosed with any type of disease.
- BIA analysis should be consulted with doctors if you have injuries of either internal or external nature.
- Measurement is prohibited for the examinee with an internally implanted Pacemaker.
- Measurement should be taken on an empty stomach, as food intake may affect accurate measurement.
- Measurement should be taken prior to physical activity or exercise. Violent physical movement may cause temporary results change.
- Measurement should be taken prior to taking a bath. Bathing before measurement may cause slight, temporary change of total body water distribution & total body water percentage.
- Stand upright for about 3 minutes before you take the test for more reliable results.
- Excessively high or low body temperature may cause inaccurate measurement control. Human body maintains the most stable condition at normal temperature.
- Measurement should be taken after excretion or urination. Extra body waste may add up to result figures, resulting in inaccurate analysis.
- Wear light clothes and take off accessories. Wearing heavy clothes or accessories may cause the problem of adding extra weight on result.
- Menstruation may cause a temporary increase of body water, which could affect measurement results.
- If repeated measurements need to be taken over a specific period of time, make sure your tests have been taken under the same conditions for comparison of data results.
- Dry limbs or excessive callouses may hinder accurate measurement. Wet-wipe palm and sole prior to measurement.
- Large surgical scars or skin problems may hinder accurate measurement.
