Body Composition Analysis
At Colorado Nutrition Boulder & Fort Collins we look beyond the number on the scale and show you what your body is really made of. We use the InBody230 or the InBody570 to analyze your body composition. The InBody230 and the InBody570 track the changes that are occurring throughout the body as a result of following a healthy diet and exercise program, which are essential in a healthy lifestyle.

What is the InBody?
The InBody uses a Direct Segmental Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (DSM-BIA). This type of testing enables accurate testing that has a 98% correlation with DXA and underwater weighing. This cutting-edge BIA technology is unlike other BIA devices, as the InBody does not need to rely on statistical data or averages in calculating values since the data it gathers is far more accurate. It accurately evaluates a wide range of individual, especially those with unique body types such as children, extremely obese physiques, senior adults and athletes.
BioSpace InBody Analyzer
We use the InBody 230 & 570 bio-impedance analyzer to precisely measure body fat & lean muscle. Traditional bio-impedance machines – such as scales you can buy for your home – use only one electrical frequency and two contact points (the feet) to estimate body fat. Therefore, they must rely on age-, gender-, and activity-based equations to guesstimate the percentage of body fat. Moreover, they can ONLY estimate body fat and total lean (non-fat) mass – which provides limited information. The InBody utilizes EIGHT separate contact points and two electrical frequencies. With this technology, we can get direct and accurate measurements of body fat, lean muscle, intra- and extra-cellular water - with no “allowances” or fudging for age, gender, or activity level.
Not only does the InBody track your body fat and lean muscle – it does so in 5 separate body segments! The InBody analyzes each arm and leg, as well as the trunk, separately – to determine the precise body composition of each body segment.
Every consultation includes an analysis of your body composition. You will receive a detailed analysis like the previews shown below.
