The HealthQuest BIA system allows you to track your patient's progress
in terms of centimeters and kilograms lost during the course of their
treatment program. The program not only calculates the total cms
and kgs lost but also the average loss of each per week. These results
are highly motivating for your patients and help spur them on to further
This rating assesses your physique according to the ratio of body
fat and muscle mass in your body. As you become more active and
reduce the amount of body fat, your physique rating will also change accordingly.
Even though your weight may not change, your muscle mass and body fat
levels may be changing making you healthier and at lower risk of certain
diseases. You should set your own goal as to what type of physique you
would like to have and your diet and fitness program will then be designed
to meet that goal.
4 Hand and 4 Foot Electrodes for Segmental Body Fat & Muscle Mass Measurement
In addition to all the Adult measurements, Body Fat measurements for Children ages 5 to 17 years
Body fat % – Too much or not enough fat?
Segmental Body Fat % - Measurement of each arm, each leg and
Body Fat Healthy Range - Indicators for Adults & Children
Visceral Fat Rating - Visceral fat surrounds the internal
organs in the stomach/trunk area of your body. Ensuring you have healthy
levels of visceral fat reduces the risk of certain diseases such as
heart disease and high blood pressure and delays the onset of type 2
diabetes. Monitoring your results can help you adjust your lifestyle
to stay in the low risk range.
Total body water %- Are you drinking enough
water? (Almost all people who live to a hundred report drinking a lot
Bone mass - Indicates the weight of bone mineral in the body.
The development of muscle tissue has been shown to encourage stronger,
healthier bones. It is important to develop and maintain healthy bones
through plenty of exercise along with a range of bone building nutrients.
Basal Metabolic Rate - Indicates the number of calories
your body burns when at rest. Unlike other methods of calculating BMR,
InnerScan takes the amount of muscle in your body into account, giving
a more accurate picture of your dietary requirements. Your BMR will
tend to decrease as you get older - you can help prevent this through
a regular routine of cardiovascular exercise and increased activity.
Metabolism Age - Your Basal Metabolic Rate starts to decrease after
the age of 17 and the metabolic age rating indicates what age level
your body is currently rated at. Aim to keep young!
Muscle Mass - Calculates the weight of muscle in your
body. Do you have too much or not enough muscle?
Segmental Muscle Mass Measurement of each arm, each leg and
Physique Rating - Describes your overall physique or
body shape by examining the balance between the amounts of body fat
and muscle in your body.
Athlete Mode - For people who do more than 10 hours
a week intense exercise and who have a resting heart rate of fewer than
60 beats per minute.
How do the Monitors
The user stands on four foot plates on the platform of the scale and holds
the hand electrodes that are conveniently housed in the base using retractable
connecting cables. The monitor will then send a safe low dual frequency
electrical signal from the 8 hand and foot plate electrodes through the
The results of the measurements (known as Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis
or BIA) are then fed into a very advanced computer within the monitor
which then provides accurate and personalised body composition readings.
This method enables the user to obtain more in-depth information regarding
their body composition such as muscle mass, fat mass, visceral (abdominal)
fat level, bone mass, metabolic rate and physique rating.
How Accurate are our
The current model's Bio-Impedance measuring system and the inbuilt computer's
calculation program is based on the result of over 50,000 client tests
conducted in centers throughout Japan.
Its accuracy is unsurpassed by any other currently available system.
Our system is highly accurate - it is the only system on the market that
has been independently tested in comparison to DEXA (dual-energy x-ray
absorbiometry) which is generally considered the gold standard due to
its reliability and precision.
The BIA monitor was found to be within 2% of DEXA* readings. This
is a great result for our low cost and very convenient system.
Dual-Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry
*Dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry - DXA or DEXA - is used for Body Composition Analysis in hospitals and is extremely accurate. Two X-ray beams with differing energy levels are aimed at the patient's body during the scan. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied body composition and bone density measurement technology.
The cost of a DEXA scan varies from $250 to $350 ... the cost of a consult and BIA scan is way below that, so you clients will really love saving money as well !!
Higher Contact Pressure = Better Accuracy
In comparison to other competing products, independent research has shown
that as the full weight of the patient presses down on the four foot pads
ensuring better contact, more accurate results are obtained than by the
wrists and ankle strap contacts used by other systems.
Unlike other systems, they measure the weight of the patient, visceral
fat and provide bone mass readings as well. Because the patient does not
have to lie down, tests can be performed very quickly in whatever spot
you find convenient no table is required.
