Anthropomorphic measurement

The laboratory is equipped with a BioSpace InBody 220 body composition analyser. This allows us to assess:

  • Body mass index (BMI)
  • Basal metabolic rate (BMR)
  • Body fat composition
  • Protein composition
  • Skeletal muscle mass
  • Body hydration levels
  • Waist-hip ratio.
In addition, the equipment allows us to provide:
  • Average values for parameters - based on an individual’s ethnicity, age, body composition and sex, and
  • Suggested exercise plans to allow an individual to achieve optimal body composition and weight.
In addition, the laboratory is equipped to measure blood pressure, pulse, galvanic skin response and carbon monoxide levels and can analyse dietary records to assess nutritional intake (using the WISP software package). In addition, the equipment allows us to provide:
