Have you ever asked yourself what exactly the number on your weight scale means? Texas Children’s employees will have the opportunity to answer that question during the month of April by participating in an InBody assessment.
Administered by the Well-being team, the assessment will be conducted with InBody, a state-of-the-art device that assesses your overall body composition. The 15-second evaluation is a quick, precise, and non-invasive test that helps you:
- Understand your weight and measure your strength
- See your body fat percentage, visceral fat, and fat-to-muscle distribution
- Check your water balance
- Determine your overall health and risk for disease
- Set health goals with specific information on how much fat to lose and how much muscle to gain
After the assessment, you will receive a full report including:
- Body composition analysis – measures how much fat, bone, muscle, and water make up your total weight
- Body fat percentage analysis – measures your body fat percentage to help you determine your overall health
- Segmental lean analysis – indicates how much muscle you need to gain for optimal health
- Intracellular and extracellular water analysis – measures hydration as well as water retention
“As you think about your health and fitness goals, remember that relying on your body weight alone may fool you. Without a proper understanding of your overall body composition, you may miss out on important opportunities to make major health improvements,” said the Director of Benefits & Well-being, Jill Fragoso. “Use the InBody assessment to your advantage and learn those important numbers for your health. Commit to your well-being and know that Texas Children’s is here to help!”
