Easy, Quick and Precise

Why we trust the

InBody 270

All InBody professional body composition analysers rely on four pillars of technology to deliver quick, accurate, and precise results.  These pillars allow you to trust that the results reflect your true health from the inside out. 

Direct Segmental Measurement (DSM) measures water, muscle mass, and fat mass in the five body segments: right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg, and trunk.  By measuring each segment of the body separately, InBody provides an in-depth analysis of the patient’s muscle-fat and fluid balance in each segment independently.  Identifying your lean and fat distribution allows a better assessment of associated health risks, while segmental ECW/TBW can be used to identify systemic or localised inflammation resulting from injury, underlying health conditions, or surgical complications. 

InBody devices utilise multiple frequencies to measure body water more accurately than commonly-used methods such as weight changes or pitting oedema scores.  These high and low frequencies measure both intracellular and extracellular water, producing precise measures of each body water compartment.  With accurate fluid measures, InBody can be used to identify fluid imbalances or water retention stemming from inflammation or injury, as well as monitor changes resulting from exercise interventions and recovery.

InBody uses an 8-Point Tactile Electrode system to ensure that measurements always start in the same place, test after test.  This technology creates precise and reproducible results, ensuring that the results obtained are a direct outcome of clinical recommendations and interventions, rather than an error. 

InBody does not rely on empirical estimations based on age, gender, or ethnicity to predict results.  With the high level of accuracy and precision achieved with the aforementioned technological advancements, InBody removes population-associated assumptions when determining body composition to ensure results are based solely on the individual, increasing sensitivity to the individual’s unique makeup of muscle and fat, enabling effective tracking of changes. 

How Body Composition Analysis can help you

In our quest to provide value and the most holistic approach to your health and wellness journey, CanSports invested in the InBody 270, a top-of-the-line body composition analyser with a 98% accuracy rate.    

Because we believe to get you where you want to go, you have to know what is going on from the inside out.  The data provided by our InBody 270 is instrumental in both the planning and attainment of health and fitness goals.  Strategies that provide immediate feedback are instrumental to success.  The scan allows us to establish a clear and accurate baseline that will allow you to set appropriate and attainable goals, and track changes over time.   

Simple weight scales or the Body Mass Index fall short in providing accurate data because they only highlight changes in weight.  They fail to identify progress in muscle gain or fat loss.  To support ongoing success through physical activity, understanding body composition with InBody is key.   

In addition to total body fat and lean mass percentages, the InBody breaks down each segment of your body.  This helps you see imbalances and also gives an estimate of your total visceral fat by using the body fat percentage in your trunk and legs as an indicator.

Only impedance is used to determine your body composition results; no statistical data or empirical equations are used or required to predict your body composition.

Measure your fat, muscle, and water levels in less than a minute.  No dunking.  No pinching.  No discomfort.  Simply stand on the device and hold the hand electrodes to test.  During the test, you stay fully clothed, making it one of the least invasive testing devices on the market.

We use data gleaned to adjust your workout for optimal muscle gain, fat loss, or health management!  Your coach will help guide you through the comprehensive printout as to what is going on inside your body and design a customised program based on your InBody results. 


The InBody 270 Test provides easy-to-understand, accurate, and objective measurements to evaluate your body composition:   

1.  Assess muscle distribution and target areas weakened by injury. 

2.  Use body composition analysis to stay motivated and reach your goals.  Track your fat decrease and muscle mass increase over time, so you can see yourself becoming healthier and stronger.  You can't track these changes with a regular scale. 

3.  Identify muscle and fat imbalances in each segment of the body. 

4.  Find out if you're 'Skinny Fat'.  Skinny doesn't always equal healthy.  'Skinny Fat' is a term used to describe those people who are thin, yet have more fat and less muscle than recommended.  These people have the same health risks as those who are considered obese.  Knowing your body composition can help you understand health risks and spur you on to take the actions necessary to prevent sickness and certain diseases. 

5.  Monitor changes to determine the efficacy of an exercise program and diet plan to ensure long-term success. 

For the most accurate results:

● Do not exercise or eat two (2) hours prior to your test.
● Try to drink as little as possible two (2) hours prior to your test.
● Empty your bladder just before your test.
● Wear shorts and a tank top (or loose-fitting shirt).
● Optimal - though not required - that women be tested while not having their periods.
