Body composition measurement

A mirror and a scale are a good starting point, but do you want to know what your body really consists of?

In the body composition analysis of HyMy village, we accurately determine the amount and distribution of muscle, fat and water in the body. We use the SECA mBCA 514 body composition analyzer. The measurement is fast, safe and based on a reliable bioimpedance method.

During the visit, you will receive an easy-to-read report in which the results are presented graphically together with interpretation instructions.

You can use the results as part of monitoring your own well-being, rehabilitation or weight management.

How can you prepare for body composition measurement?

Please note the points below before coming to the measurement:

  • remove jewelry and other metal objects before the measurement.
  • avoid sweating profusely or drinking alcohol 24 hours before the measurement.
  • avoid strenuous exercise a few hours before the measurement, as it affects the amount of fluids in the muscles.
  • avoid eating and drinking at least a couple of hours before the measurement. It is recommended that the measurement be performed in the morning after 8-12 hours of fasting.
  • go to the bathroom before you come for the measurement.
  • it is good to also take into account the possible fluid accumulation caused by menstruation.

The measurement does not fit:

  • for people with a pacemaker or other implant
  • for persons with prosthetic limbs
  • for pregnant

For successful monitoring, it is good to carry out the measurement in the same type of conditions every time

What does the physiotherapist do?

A physiotherapist is a multi-skilled professional who promotes people’s ability to function, health, well-being and mobility. The competence of a physiotherapist is especially needed when aging, disability, pain, illness, dysfunction or a factor in the individual's daily life limits the ability of the individual or population to function. The work of a physiotherapist in promoting the health of an individual or groups is significant.
