Body Composition Analysis 

We provide our patients with the most comprehensive body composition testing available today. This will help you to truly understand your weight. 

For most of us, when we step on the bathroom scale and see we’ve lost 3 pounds, we don’t know what we really lost. Was this 3 pounds of fat? Muscle? Water? 

Measuring your body composition allows you to truly understand the changes in your weight.

Body composition, or fat vs. fat-free (lean) mass, has long been considered one of the best determinants of disease prediction and a person’s overall health. It reflects the results of your physical activity and nutritional practices. 

Going by body weight alone can be misleading, because a scale can’t tell the difference between a pound of fat and a pound of muscle. Our non-invasive assessment is a medical-grade body composition analyzer that provides an in-depth evaluation more accurate than a bone density test. It measures fat mass, fat-free mass, total body water, intracellular water, extracellular water, and skeletal muscle mass. In just 17 seconds. And it allows us to  print you out a detailed report. 

With our advanced Seca mBCA, you will see the whole picture of what’s really going on in your body, so you can track progress and make changes for better nutrition, exercise and health and wellness.
