Body Composition Analysis
Body composition analysis provides an estimation of body’s reserves of fat, protein, water and several minerals. Here we use BOCAX1 from MediGate Korea.Co with a four compartment model that views the human body in four chemical groups: water, protein, mineral and fat through bioelectrical impedance.
BOCAx1 not only analyzes your body composition, it also analyses your segmental and abdominal. Extensive explanation on dietary management will be based on these results.
Since the results are very detailed, it will be easier for the clients to understand.
Total Body Fat
In the context of body fat, the body fat distribution is important when considering the health implication of obesity.
Total abdominal fat will be assessed using this analyzer as well as waist hip ratio (WHR) and waist circumference.
Muscle / Protein Mass
Muscle is made up of water and protein. Muscle mass is the weight of muscle in your body. When your body builds muscle, it will help in burning calories and fat all the time.
It will also increase the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) thus help in reducing and maintaining your weight.
Don’t starve. Don’t binge.
Eat right, exercise. You will be there.
Know What Your Body Is Made Of
In recent time, people are more interest in body composition. As the body composition analysis will help you to know more about your overall body health.
According to the analysis report, the important parameters are body fat and muscle mass as the Body Mass Index (BMI) is no longer the gold standard to determine the overall health status.
As stated above, knowing your body fat could direct you to following treatments that you may require.
Measurements of body fat are important in studying the risk of obesity. Knowing the overall body fat and protein, it is commonly noted as the general assessment of a persons nutritional status.
Two people with same sex and body weight may look similar physically, however, they could be of vast difference in terms of body composition; hence the importance of body composition analysis as a general health screen.
