With 26 years of experience, InBody provides a wide range of body composition analyzers.
One of the most frequently asked questions from our customers is: What is the best InBody that fits my business?
When it comes to medical fields, monitoring the body water balance is important as edema is a common symptom that is closely related to the condition of the patients. For this reason, many doctors around the globe choose the InBody models which show this body water balance; ECW ratio.
Then what are the body composition analyzers which provide this body water result?
But.. How are they really different? To help your understanding, I would like to compare InBody570, InBody770, and InBody970.
InBody 570 is where the medical-grade lineup of products begins. In addition to muscle and fat mass, InBody570 provides a Whole Body ECW ratio.
ECW ratio refers to the ratio of extracellular water to total body water. As you may know, up to 70% of our body is made of water and it can be categorized into Intracellular water (the water that is inside the cell) and Extracellular water (the water that is outside the cell).
Healthy people usually maintain a certain ratio between Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water, while people with certain medical conditions often don’t. In a healthy state, ECW/TBW ratio should fall within the range of 0.360 to 0.390. If the ECW ratio is over 0.390, an additional medical check-up will be needed as we can doubt edema or malnutrition.
InBody770 takes an even deeper look into body water. With a result sheet dedicated to body water analysis, InBody770 not only provides the Whole Body ECW ratio but also measures the Segmental ECW ratio.
The Segmental ECW ratio refers to the ECW ratio of each body part. It allows seeing which part of the body is swelling or whether there are any imbalances between each body part. This data is particularly important for medical professionals as edema tends to start from each end of the limbs. Doctors can detect edema before it gets serious with a body water result sheet.
In addition to the segmental ECW ratio, InBody 770 can give a clearer view of visceral fat, providing their relative position among their peers using InBody’s accumulated data.
Furthermore, InBody770 shows the cellular health of the patients with Phase Angle.
InBody970 is the latest InBody and the most advanced model that we have ever introduced. This high-end device gives you a new experience in body composition analysis with its optional device and its result sheets.
InBody 970 goes with a specially conceived device named “Y scope”.
Yscope is the world’s first portable BIA abdominal fat analyzer to get an even more comprehensive measurement of the patients’ abdominal fat. As a result, you can have more in-depth consultations with your patients using the data that we provide.
The Visceral Fat Result Sheet shows the V/S ratio, visceral fat/ subcutaneous fat ratio which allows you to determine whether a person has visceral fat obesity or subcutaneous fat obesity.
Along with the Visceral Fat Result Sheet, InBody970 provides you with 7 different types of result sheets, you can choose the right result sheet that fits your needs.
The Evaluation Result Sheet provides a comprehensive analysis so that the patients can know how their status is compared to the young age group(T-score) and the same age group (Z-score) utilizing over 13 million data that we have accumulated around the globe. In addition, you can customize the result sheet by choosing between 20 options.
