Assessment of body composition by impedance represents a precise and quick method to evaluate your body fat content, your muscle mass (arms, legs, trunk) as well as your intracellular and extracellular water ratio. Maintaining a proper balance between these elements helps the body stay healthy and in shape. An imbalance of these elements can be linked to obesity, osteoporosis, to name only a few.
Whether you are an athlete, an occasional sports enthusiast or simply looking for ways to improve your physical health, Club CAMU santé recommends an evaluation of your body composition with the InBody 520, which can prove to be an essential tool in your effort to get back into shape, to lose weight or simply to monitor your physical condition on a periodical basis.
With this evaluation, our team’s physician or nutritionist can work with you to establish a strategy to help you reach your goal. Furthermore, because the InBody 520 is highly precise, you will be able to detect progressive changes in your body composition during a treatment, a rehabilitation program or simply an exercise program.
The InBody 520 provides essential data such as:
- Lean body mass
- Body fat
- Body water ratio (intracellular water vs extracellular water)
- Body mass index (your BMI)
- Basal metabolic rate (minimum number of calories expended when at rest)
For each of the above elements, the InBody 520 will give you the ideal normal values for your specific body type, which you may find useful in your efforts to improve your overall health.
