Measuring and Managing Healthy Living:
For practice members that would like to track their progress whether you are on a nutrition program, training for an event, just curious about their health or wanting to track progress. RJL Systems is the GOLD standard for body composition analysis-safe, accurate and statistically reliable. Our Body Impedance Analyzer (BIA) is registered with the FDA as a Class II Medical Device. BIA has been cited in over 2000 studies, in approximately 100 medical and scientific journals since 1980. We have standardized equations sets for General Population as well as Sub-Populations: Pediatric, Obese, Wasting, Men, Women, African American, Mexican Adult, Athletic, etc. It is trusted by researchers and clinicians globally. It correlates with DEXA (it is not as accurate but more accurate than other forms of body composition), however BIA also further provides water (intracellular, extracellular and total body water) going even beyond DEXA. Our supine position provides superior statistical reliability and validity, compared to both hand-held and standing methods.
Body composition analysis is a physiologic, non-invasive, whole body composition assessment distinguishing fluids from tissues. It provides accurate and reliable data. Its unique and precise measurements allow you to see the results, measures your progress and keeps you motivated! In addition, it helps you monitor primary and secondary prevention risk factors known to be associated with diabetes, immunology, obesity, cancer, allergy, cachexia, and nephrology.
Everyone loves to see their progress, especially when you are getting healthy and this is an excellent non-invasive way to do just that! You will receive your Body Mass Index, Fat Mass Index, Lean Soft Tissue Mass Index, Bone Mineral Content, Skeletal Muscle Mass, Intracellular Water, Extracellular Water, Total Body Water, Lean Body Mass, Dry Body Mass, Metabolic Expenditure: calorie consumption for basic body use and calorie consumption for your activity level, and Phase Angle.
A complete pdf report will be emailed to you. You will be able to track future results on a graph color-coded with percentages. It couldn’t be easier to track your progress.
** Other machine’s are not comparable to our machine. Our BIA is the gold standard and progress tracking can only be done with the same BIA.
