What do your results mean?


Total Body WaterConsists of Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water

     Intracellular Water: Total amount of water within the body cells

     Extracellular Water: Total amount of water outside of the body cells

Dry Lean Mass: Amount of protein and minerals in your body

Body Fat Mass: The amount of the body fat in the person, including both the surface level (subcutaneous) and internal (visceral) fat

Body Weight: Sum of Body Fat Mass and Lean Body Mass


Skeletal Muscle Mass: (also known as SMM) Amount of muscle attached to the bones (muscle most easily affected through exercise)

Body Fat Mass: Sum of subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, and fat surrounding the muscles
Subcutaneous Fat: Fat found beneath the skin
Visceral Fat: Fat found surrounding the internal organs in the abdomen

The purpose of this section of the scan is to compare your Skeletal Muscle Mass and Body Fat Mass. The longer the Skeletal Muscle Mass bar is compared to the Body Fat Mass bar, the stronger the body is.


In the photo: This specific person has a long Body Fat Mass bar compared to their Skeletal Muscle Mass bar, therefore is considered of normal weight, but of the weak type.


-Track your past measurements on the results sheet
-Shows your previous results of Weight, Skeletal Muscle Mass, Percent Body Fat, and ECW/TBW

Take the InBody scan periodically to monitor your progress over time, from every week to once a month.


In this photo: The first scan to take place for this specific person was on 10/10/11 at 9:15 with the following results:

Weight: 143.9 lbs
SMM: 44.3 lbs
PBF: 41.3%
ECW/TBW: 0.399

The second scan to take place was on 10/30/11 at 9:40 with the following results:

Weight: 139.9 lbs
SMM: 44.1 lbs
PBF: 40.7%
ECW/TBW: 0.398

As shown, this person has lost some overall weight. Some of this weight loss was in the Body Fat, but also in the Skeletal Muscle Mass. This is an indication of someone who has possibly changed their diet, but has not implemented a workout routine.


Body Fat Mass: How many pounds of Body Fat Mass  are recommended to be lost (-) or gained (+) to get the ideal Percent Body Fat.

Lean Body Mass: How many pounds of muscle are recommended to be gained (+) or lost (-) to get to the ideal Percent Body Fat.

In the photo: This specific person is recommended to lose 21.8 pounds of Body Fat Mass and gain 5.5 pounds of Lean Body Mass. The total overall weight would be a loss of 16.3 pounds.

BMR: An estimation using Lean Body Mass to determine the caloric needs over a 24 hour period at absolute rest


In the photo: The results show that this specific person will burn 1175 kcal within 24 hours at rest.  This number can be used to determine the daily amount of calories a person needs to consume to lose Body Fat Mass or gain Skeletal Muscle Mass.


BMI: (also Known as Body Mass Index) Obesity clarification that uses height and weight

Percent Body Fat: More accurate measurement based on your muscle to fat ratio.

In this part of the scan, there may be some inaccuracies in BMI for muscular individuals and obese individuals.  


For example, if you are considered muscular for your height and weight, your BMI will consider yourself obese.  We know this is not true based on your Percent Body Fat.

In the photo: The range of 18% to 28% is considered optimal. This specific person has a Percent Body Fat of 36.9% which is over the normal range.


Segmental Lean Analysis: 
     -Evaluates whether the muscles are adequately developed in the body
     -Shows how much Lean Muscle Mass is in each segment of the body
     -Trunk includes the chest, abdomen, back, and lower back


Top Bar: 
    -Compares the actual amount of Lean Muscle Mass to your ideal weight derived from your height

Bottom Bar: 
     -Percentage of Lean Muscle Mass compared to your own weight
