Indirect Calorimetry (IC)
The number of calories a person needs in a day is influenced by age, sex, body composition, chronic disease, medications and fitness level. This number is unique to each individual. The measurement of resting energy expenditure (REE) is used to determine your accurate calorie level goal for achieving a desired body composition. IC can be performed periodically, as diet and body composition change, in order to fine-tune your diet and achieve desired body composition goals.
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)
An optimum body composition can help manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, heart disease and hyperlipidemia, and even help to reduce your need for medications. BIA is the measurement of muscle mass, fat mass, body water and phase angle and is used as a guide to determine body composition and goals for weight change. Favorable body composition can help produce maximal results for the recreational or competitive athlete. Adequate muscle mass helps keep people active and functional throughout life. BIA can be tested sequentially to determine changes in body composition related to nutrition and exercise and to guide exercise program planning.
