InBody Analysis in Palos Heights
In order to check the status of your health, you have to understand the composition of your body. The InBody Test, a non-invasive body composition analysis, allows for a careful examination that breaks down the major components of the body and makes this information available to both patients and healthcare providers. Today, it is considered one of the fastest and efficient health evaluation techniques.
Water, fat, minerals and proteins are primary components of the human body and each is closely related to one’s health. A review of these components will help determine what can be done to maintain or improve your overall health, whether it be establishing a simple plan to reduce weight or completely transforming your body. The findings of an InBody Test are displayed on a result sheet that is easy to understand.
The analysis of bodily components was developed in the 1960s. It involved the application of a small electric current to test the amount of water in a human body through the principle of resistance. Although early methods were plagued by accuracy issues, technological advances would later solve this problem. The first successful body composition analyzer employed direct measurement and multiple frequencies. Using the same electric currency technique, this non-invasive analysis can be conducted in about 30 minutes. The accuracy of the InBody Test has been proven through numerous medical studies.
