Body Composition Analysis at Cape Gate Dietitians

Body Composition Analysis:
using InBody20 and InBodyS10 machines

Body composition is a method of describing what the body is made of. It includes fat, protein, minerals and body water. It also describes weight more accurately than BMI. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage. This can help validate services like personal training , patient care, and corporate wellness.

We use the inBody20 machine for above mentioned basic body composition at all diet visit and measurement is included in consultation fee or can be booked as a stand alone procedure.

The InBodyS10 is a more specialised scan that can be compared to the Gold Standard of composition namely a DEXA scan. The InBody S10 body water analyser is specifically designed for immobile or amputee patients and uses attachable electrodes to identify excess fluid and assess cellular health. It can also determine Bone Density and testing is a lot more cost effective than a DEXA scan.
