INBODY COMPOSITION TESTING
LIFE*MOD offers InBody Composition tests at 3 different locations. InBody Tests are also included within our LIFE*MOD Programs.
The InBody composition test measures and analyzes body water weight, muscle, and fat.
"Total body water data can be divided into intracellular water and extracellular water, values important for understanding a user’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness and fitness contexts.
Each InBody Test will print out a full-page results sheet detailing the muscle, fat, and water values of the user. The InBody 570 provides you with lean mass and fat values in each segment of the body to give you proper assessment of body composition."
