What is the InBody 770?
The InBody 700 is not your typical body composition test… The InBody 770 is a Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) device. We are now able to measure and track valuable indicators of your health like your visceral fat, body water distribution segmental readings (an indicator of inflammation in specific areas) and phase angle values.
How Does the InBody 770 Work?
Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) was discovered in the early 1960s. BIA is a method of measuring body composition. A small alternating current is sent through the body which measures the different resistance of the make-up of the body. For example, body fat compared to body water (such as blood) has a much weaker conductivity, which equals relatively high impedance.

InBody 770 FAQs
You should refrain from exercise. Strenuous exercise or sharp movements can cause temporary changes in body composition.
For best results, it’s best not to wear any accessories or metal during the test. Do not wear excessively loose clothing that may come into contact with the palms of your hands or bottoms of. your feet.
Bioelectrical impedance uses very minor currents which are absolutely harmless to the body. Its safety has been proven by acquiring medical system’s authorization in Korea, Europe, and the United States. Many medical institutions are using this method.
It takes between 30 to 60 seconds.
