Body Composition Analysis

At Revive Wellness, we prefer to use body composition instead of relying only on height and weight (or body mass index) for our assessments. Body composition analysis is helpful with tracking the distribution and change over time in muscle mass versus body fat on your body. These components are important as they more strongly related to long-term health outcomes and functionality.

We assess body composition using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). BIA uses a low-grade electrical current sent through your body to measure your body composition. This provides data on how much muscle mass and fat mass your body has, which can be used to refine any nutrition or exercise program you may be working on. A results sheet containing your body composition analysis data will be provided for you to take away for your records.

Upon request, one of our dietitians can review your body composition results with you, explain how the results are interpreted, and discuss how you can use this information to support your goals.

12 hours prior

  • Refrain from eating (TIP: bring food to the appointment so you can eat right after).
  • Refrain from any caffeinated or alcoholic beverage.
