InBody 570 Advanced Analysis –
Let’s See What You Are Made Of!

Step off the scale and step up to the InBody 570 for advanced body composition analysis.

Advanced Space Age Analysis

Step off the scale and step up to the InBody 570 for advanced body composition analysis. The InBody device not only analyzes how much fat and muscle you have but also measures your Total Body Water and divides it into Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water -values important for understanding a user’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness, or fitness contexts. With these water values, you can begin to identify and track inflammation, swelling, and even injuries with ECW/TBW Analysis while monitoring how this ratio changes over time under the Body Composition History chart. The InBody Test is fast and non-invasive. In just 45 seconds, receive a comprehensive Result Sheet displaying key metrics like Segmental Lean Analysis for assessing muscle development. Measure body fat levels by utilizing the Visceral Fat Level metric, a key component to assessing fat balance in the body. Use the Body Composition History graph to easily chart changes in Muscle Mass, Percent Body Fat, and ECW/TBW over time to optimize your programs for success.

Better Metrics - Valuable Insights

The InBody Result Sheet gives you valuable insights into physical with key metrics like Segmental Lean Analysis. The InBody Graph shows Lean Mass values for each body segment in pounds as well as a sufficiency percentage. You can use this data to assess muscle development, identify any imbalances between segments, and personalize your program to help others achieve their health goals. Key Features:
  • NO Estimations
    Only impedance is used to calculate your results – no statistical data needed.
  • Lean Mass
    Provides lean mass values for each body segment in pounds
  • History
    Track changes in the Body Composition History chart on the Result Sheet
  • Body Fat
    Provides segmental fat and visceral fat analyses
  • Body Water
    Divides Total Body Water into Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water
  • 45 Seconds
    Quick and convenient body composition test
  • Basal Metabolic Rate
    Provides your calorie needs for life-sustaining functions

Let’s Learn Just a Bit About Body Fat

There is a common misconception that all body fat is bad. In truth, some body fat is needed to protect the person’s health as well as supply a reservoir of energy for performing various body functions. To better understand this, the total weight of body fat can be subdivided into three separate categories:

  • Weight of “Essential Body Fat” – This amount of body fat is needed to protect the body from infectious diseases and to protect the internal organs from bruising damage.
  • Weight of “Reserve Body Fat” – This additional body fat that does not cause any medical risks, and provides a reservoir of “fuel” for use by the body.
  • Weight of “Excess Body Fat” – The amount of body fat that is over and above the combination of Essential Body Fat plus Reserve Body Fat. Excess Body Fat causes the risk of serious health problems such as strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and certain forms of cancer.

Essential Body Fat

Yes, there is a minimum percent body fat needed to remain healthy. Excessively low body fat percentages would put the body at risk for bacterial and viral diseases, while failing to provide the body with insulation against temperature extremes and protection for the internal organs against bruising. Note: The minimum percent body fat is higher for females than for males because of reproduction needs as well as other bodily functions

Essential Body Fat can be stored by the body in two different ways:

  • Directly under the skin–called subcutaneous fat. This fat layer provides thermal protection and bruise protection.
  • Inside the muscle itself–called intramuscular fat. This is similar to the thin layers of fat you see within meat when you buy a well trimmed steak from a butcher. This fat provides an emergency “fuel” source for the total body and “cushions” (i.e., protects) the vital organs from shock forces.

Reserve Body Fat

There are many studies that reinforce the idea of “minimum body fat levels” that can be achieved before one is at risk for health problems. Many of these studies were performed at the Cooper Institute in Dallas, Texas, and by the National Institute of Health’s Framingham Studies.

These studies largely agree that the maximum amount of allowable Reserve Body Fat depends on a person’s height, age, and gender. This is why our Oklahoma City BMI testing makes sure to measure such things with the help of InBody.

Excess Body Fat

So what happens when your fat levels are far in excess of those needed to protect the body and fuel its basic functions? The answer is weight gain, and ultimately, obesity. Research conducted by the NIH research shows that not only are health risks associated with Excess Body Fat, but the level of risk increases with the body fat percentage.
