Detailed 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. It describes your weight more accurately and provides a better glimpse into your overall health than traditional methods. Extensive explanation on dietary management will be given based on these results. Since the results are very detailed, it will be easier for the clients to understand.
Total body fat is important as weight alone is not a clear indicator of good health because it does not distinguish between weight that come from body fat and those that come from muscle. In the context of body fat, the body fat distribution is important when considering the health implication of obesity.
Total abdominal fat also will be assessed using this analyzer as well as waist hip ratio (WHR) and waist circumference.
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.
In recent time, people are more interest in body composition. As the body composition analysis will help you to know what your body made of and more about your overall body health.
You might think of Body Mass Index (BMI) however it doesn’t take into account of gender, bone mass, age, and where is fat stored. 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.
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 your nutritional status.
When you’re trying to get healthier, you’re most likely focused on losing fat and gaining muscle. Scales or BMI cannot tell you how much of your weight loss is fat, muscle, or body water, but body composition can.
