InBody 570 testing

Metabolic measurement and body comp analysis is the key component we use for diagnostic testing to evaluate and set body composition goals. It’s provides scientific principles to interact with clients and get their questions answered about their individual calorie needs and metabolic rates. It helps be more successful short term, remove the guess work with only using predictive equations, and provides guidance for maintenance long term.

We utilize the InBody 570 to measure body compsition and the Korr REEVUE Indirect Calorimeter to measure REE (resting energy expenditure)

These two scans will take about 30 minutes to complete:

  • The InBody 570 uses a method called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) which will only require you to be barefoot. The scan takes approximately 3-4 minutes. It divides your weight into muscle mass and fat mass to assess your health and guide nutrition recommendations.

  • The Korr REEVUE will measure the percent oxygen concentration in your exhale to determine how much oxygen was consumed in the body - this ultimately measures how much energy your body requires at rest. This test requires you to be reclined, resting, and breathing into an air hose while wearing a nose clip. This scans takes approximately 10-13 minutes. 

Prepare yourself for testing and the most accurate results:

  • No exercise or training the day of, before testing

  • Fast at least 4 hours prior to appointment

  • Avoid stimulants, such as caffeine

What to expect

InBody 570 Results

The InBody 570 provides accurate body composition analysis in less than 45 seconds, providing information about:

  • body fat

  • skeletal muscle mass

  • visceral fat,

  • segmental fat

  • intracellular water

  • extracellular water

Metabolic Analysis

Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
