Body composition analysis breaks down your body into four components: fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody devices use direct segmental measurement bioelectrical impedance analysis (DSM-BIA) to precisely measure body composition by sending multiple electrical currents through the body, resulting in up to six different impedance readings for the trunk and each of the four limbs. Visceral Fat Level is an indicator based on the estimated amount of fat surrounding internal organs in the abdomen. Receive all 5 points with a Visceral Fat Level under 10.
