InBody Result Sheet shows a variety of parameters related to our health.
Everything you need to know is to interpret InBody Results and start offering your clients the insights they need to improve their health.
With an explanation of Result Sheet and Parameter keynotes, you’ll learn what the terms on the Result Sheet mean, why they’re valuable, and the strategies you can use to implement this invaluable data into your research and patient’s health management.

The body fat can be divided into Visceral Fat, Subcutaneous Fat, and fat between the muscles according to its location. Visceral Fat is the fat that is distributed between the intestines and causes abdominal obesity. Visceral Fat Area (VFA) is the cross-sectional area of this Visceral Fat.
The grey area in the graph shows how the Visceral Fat is distributed throughout the age, and person’s today’s measurement result is marked with a (+). Cut off value of VFA as 100cm2 and it is important to monitor the trends of the changes.

Visceral Fat Level (VFL) shows the Visceral Fat Area in a level. Level 1 of the VFL is 10cm2, so Level 5 means 51 to 60 ㎠ of visceral fat. Visceral Fat Level tends to increase as we age and if the Visceral Fat Level is 10 and above, the risk of lifestyle diseases increases. The gold standard of visceral fat measurement through direct measurement like CT scans.

Not just Body Composition Result Sheet, Evaluation Result Sheet provides Visceral Fat Area with age-evaluation graph.
As shown in the right, it provides grey area which indicates the range of mean and standard deviation of the VFA by age (from 20 to 80 years old). The X-axis of the graph represents age (years), the Y-axis represents VFA, and the top and bottom of the shaded graph are +.-mean standard deviation.

2.VFA Evaluation Cutoff that can assess patients’ health status. InBody Evaluates “Over” if it is more than 100 ㎠.
In general, children have lower visceral fat area than adults even when their WHR is high, and the visceral fat increases with age. The reason is that most children develop subcutaneous fat first rather than visceral fat. On the other hand, as we age, the physiological action accelerates visceral fat accumulation so the visceral fat area increases.
