InBody’s four core technologies give doctors the ability to provide an accurate and precise health assessment to their patients who are overweight or have risk factors associated with CVD. The data generated by the InBody provide outputs such as body fat percentage, total body water and lean body mass. InBody devices also provide Visceral Fat Analysis so doctors and patients can monitor changes in the fat around organs. InBody devices can also identify swelling or fluid retention, which can put extra strain on the heart and lead to further issues.

Biometric data is gathered by InBody’s four core technologies:

Multi-frequency Measurements

Multi-frequency Measurements are able to measure extracellular water (ECW) and intracellular water (ICW), providing an accurate and quantitative measure of total body water.

Direct Segmental Measurement

Direct Segmental Measurement divides the body into five separate cylinders and measures the impedance for each segment.

8-Point Tactile System

The 8-Point Tactile System with thumb electrodes offers reliable reproducibility by ensuring that tests are always beginning at the same anatomical starting points.

No need for empirical estimations

These technologies combined eliminate any need for empirical data(assumptions for body composition based on factors like age, gender or ethnicity).

What is Cardiology?

Body composition is important for understanding someone’s cardiovascular health. High blood volume, increased water levels in the body, strains on the heart are all issues that stem from conditions like obesity. Cardiology is a branch of medicine that specializes in areas of the heart and parts of the circulatory system. Cardiologists typically discuss heart health, which can be influenced by diet and exercise.

Validation Study

Results indicate that regular and continuous line dancing exercise was effective in improving body composition, visceral fat, serum lipids, leptin, ghrelin, and HOMA-IR among postmenopausal women. Therefore, line dance exercise may be an effective measure for preventing cardiovascular diseases caused by obesity in this population.
