Going beyond traditional body weight scales, the InBody 570 offers an in-depth assessment of body composition, breaking down weight into various components.

Key Features:

  1. Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA): The scanner uses multi-frequency signals to measure body water. The multiple frequencies allow the device to accurately measure the amount of water inside and outside the cells.

  2. Segmental Lean Analysis: This feature breaks down lean mass distribution for different body segments, providing information about muscle distribution in the arms, legs, and trunk.

  3. Full Page Results Sheet: The InBody 570 provides an extensive results sheet, detailing various health metrics, allowing professionals to easily understand and explain results to clients.

  4. No Empirical Estimations: The InBody 570 doesn’t use age or gender to predict body composition, making its results purely based on the individual's unique body composition.

Metrics Measured:

  1. Total Body Water (TBW): This metric determines the amount of water present in the body.

  2. Dry Lean Mass (DLM): It gives insights into the weight of the body minus the total body water.

  3. Body Fat Mass (BFM): This determines the total weight of fat in the body.

  4. Segmental Fat Analysis: The InBody 570 measures fat distribution throughout the body, giving insight into where fat is concentrated.

  5. Visceral Fat Level: This metric indicates the amount of fat surrounding the internal organs in the abdominal region.

  6. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): This indicates the number of calories the body burns at rest.

  7. Body Mass Index (BMI): A commonly used metric to indicate whether an individual is underweight, normal, overweight, or obese based on height and weight.

  8. Percentage of Body Fat (PBF): Represents the portion of the body that is made up of fat.

Applications:

  1. Health and Fitness Centers: To provide members with detailed insights into their fitness journey, allowing for tailored workout and nutrition plans.

  2. Medical Settings: Physicians and healthcare providers can use the data to track changes in body composition and tailor interventions accordingly.

  3. Research: Researchers can use the device for studies that require accurate body composition data.

  4. Nutritionists: Can utilize the metrics to customize diet plans for their clients based on their unique body composition.
