InBody Scan

What is an InBody scan?

An InBody scan determines your body composition. It breaks down your weight into skeletal muscle mass and body fat mass. It also provides detail on weight distribution, chronic disease risk and progress over time.

How does an InBody scan work?

The InBody runs an electrical current throughout your body to quantify body composition. This method is known as bioelectrical impedance analysis. As a dietitian, I explain these results and highlight relevant parameters, like the visceral fat level score. From here, I provide personalised nutrition strategies to reach your specific goal.

What does InBody measure?

Muscle (percentage and kilograms), fat (percentage and kilograms), obesity analysis and visceral fat, water composition, and body composition history.

Metabolic Analyser

What does the Metabolic Analyser do?

The metabolic analyser measures your resting metabolic rate (RMR). RMR describes an individual’s daily energy expenditure at rest, which can be useful to know for various health conditions.

What is an example of how this can help?

For instance, if you’re trying to lose weight or have a thyroid condition, this information can provide accurate energy targets. This is far more specific than predictive equations typically used in practice.

How does it work?

The metabolic analyser uses indirect calorimetry, by measuring the exchange rate between oxygen and carbon dioxide. It’s a quick, pain-free test and the results will be explained in the consult.
