How can percent body fat change within a time frame as short as one day?

Weight and body water changes can occur with the introduction of meals and fluids, or with a change in environment. Circulation of body water may also cause changes in water distribution throughout the day. It is recommended that repeat tests be performed under the same testing conditions, in the same environment, and at the same time of day as the initial test.

When measuring body composition on BIA devices, why do results change when height changes?

The volume of a cylinder, in this case the body, changes when the height of the cylinder changes. BIA devices consider the body as a cylinder and the volume of body water is calculated with the height and impedance of the body.

How often can you measure body composition?

The frequency of measurement is fully dependent on each facility and program. InBody recommends testing every 2-4 weeks.

What other commonly used methods for body composition analyses exist?

Other methods of measuring body composition include DEXA, hydrostatic weighing, air displacement, and anthropometric calipers.

Is BIA technology accurate?

Historically, BIA technology, devices, and results have been met with some degree of skepticism. However, InBody technology addresses these concerns with its technological features and provides great precision and accuracy for total body and regional measurements.
