Height and weight cannot provide enough information for a comprehensive look at body composition. What about the fat, muscle or water in a body? All those things are important indicators of serious illnesses.
Medical Body Composition Analysis (mBCA) breaks down weight into several compartments which are highly relevant in medical care, namely, fat mass (FM) and fat-free mass (FFM), total body water (TBW), extracellular water (ECW), skeletal muscle mass (SMM) and lean soft tissue (LST). Medical Body Composition Analysis (mBCA) distinguishes TBW from ECW and measures SMM across LST.
Medical Body Composition Analysis gives you a window into:
- Resting Energy Expenditure (REE)
- Total Energy Expenditure (TEE)
- Total Body Water
- Extracellular Water
- Intracellular Water
- Health Risk
- Phase Angle
- Raw Impedance Data
