- What is Inbody 570? -
Ballarat Body Composition uses the InBody Australia 570 Body Composition Analysis Machine for all its reporting.
The InBody 570 machine works on Bioimpedance – (BIA). With world leading technology now in place, it is the easiest and most accurate way of testing your body composition and inner health..
- How does it work? -
Ever wondered what your body was really made of?
The InBody will look beyond the number on the scale and show you exactly what.
BIOSPACE has revolutionized the field of Body Composition Analysis using patented DSM (Direct Segmental Multi-frequency) technology. The InBody measures the entire body to provide a full page result sheet that outlines each individual. Within a minute, it reveals Body Fat Percentage, BMR, overall Muscular balance and much more
8-Point Tactile Electrodes
Exclusive Tetra-polar 8-point tactile electrodes allow measurements to repeatedly start at a fixed point - regardless of where electrodes are placed - to increase accuracy and reproducibility. This method assists in the ability to measure the whole body as five separate regions, including lean mass.
Multiple High Frequencies
The InBody uses both low and high frequencies to penetrate the cell membrane and accurately measure intracellular water and extracellular water. By using multiple frequencies, the InBody accurately measures a broad range of body types without imparting a body type, age, or gender bias.
No Empirical Estimations
InBody uses only impedance directly acquired from each subject rather than relying on empirical estimations based on the averages of statistical data. Most conventional BIA devices use body type, age, and gender.
Direct Segmental Measurement
One of the assumptions generally taken in BIA is that the measured body is one cylinder. The InBody uses direct segmental measurement bioelectric impedance analysis (DSM-BIA), a patented technology, to precisely measure the body as 5 separate cylinders and can differentiate each cylinder as a separate region.
