Body Composition Analysis Q & A

What is a body composition analysis?

A body composition analysis is a way of evaluating your weight. It provides your doctor with more details about your general health and wellness.

The body composition analysis available at Sleep Cycle Center breaks down your body into individual components like proteins, minerals, fat, and water. The analysis can also show changes in your body’s muscle and fat mass and body fat percentage.

The team uses a state-of-the-art Tanita Scale to give you the most accurate results.

Why should I consider a body composition analysis?

You should consider a body composition analysis if you’re looking for ways to improve your health and achieve your fitness goals.

Sleep Cycle Center team will also recommend a body composition analysis if you snore or have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) because of weight challenges. The analysis can provide valuable information about what you need to successfully lose weight.

Your body composition analysis also makes it easier to identify the cause of any weight fluctuations you might experience. This is important because you can gain or lose weight for many reasons, like gaining muscle or losing fat.

What’s involved in a body composition analysis?

Sleep Cycle Center uses the advanced Tanita MC-780U Plus S digital scale to analyze your body composition. The scale uses the latest multifrequency technology to record a range of body measurements in just 20 seconds.

Measurements calculated by the Tanita scale include:

  • Metabolic age
  • Muscle mass
  • Basal metabolic rate
  • Visceral fat levels
  • Intracellular water

The scale operates at a high level of precision to accurately assess your body composition without using any invasive procedures. You simply stand on the scale to get your results. The team can print out the information for you to take home.

Information from the Tanita scale provides Sleep Cycle Center team with enough details about your weight loss needs to determine what exercises and other physical activities can help you effectively lose weight.
