A body composition analysis is performed at each visit and provides each patient with a detailed printout of body fat, muscle mass and water content. The technology used to perform the BCA is called Bioelectrical Impedence. Simply put, a small electrical signal (not felt by the patient) passes from your bare feet throughout your body and travels through muscle and fat at different speeds as determined by the water content of the tissue. The more muscle a person has, the more water their body can hold, the easier it is for the current to pass. The opposite is true for fat which provides greater resistance to the current.
One of our goals is to empower you and give you the knowledge to maintain the lifestyle changes you are making and the BCA can be an invaluable tool for helping you stay on course. The BCA also helps your PFWL physician adjust your treatment plan to ensure fat loss and maintain muscle mass which will ensure your long term success.
