Advanced Body Composition Analysis


Target health risks

Track outcomes at the cellular level

Empower successful health goals

Richmond Integrative & Functional Medicine has added the InBody 570 Scanner to our biometric resources, allowing us to expand our standard of care. We will begin offering body composition scanning and analysis to RIFM members, at no additional cost.*

*Functional Primary Care (FPC) members can receive a scan and printout at any scheduled appointment. However, consultations must be scheduled as separate follow-up appointments (subject to standard insurance fees).


What is Body Composition Analysis?

Body Composition Analysis compares your overall weight to your lean muscle mass and body fat. The InBody 570 also measures intracellular and extracellular water (water inside and outside of your cells).

Body Composition Analysis provides a rich set of biometrics that enhances our ability to prevent disease and track a variety of health interventions.


Why is Body Composition Analysis Effective for...

Early identification of disease onset is imperative for rapid and effective intervention. The InBody test equips both patients and providers to evaluate health risks and measure outcomes.

  • Determine baseline body composition and identify areas needing improvement
  • Identify fluid imbalances signaling cellular inflammation
  • Monitor muscle, fat, and visceral fat to provide an accurate measure of health risk
  • Track changes for more effective long-term risk identification and reduction

Body composition analysis can reveal & reinforce which interventions are effective in promoting strength, stability, and youthful appearance.

  • Assess cellular & metabolic health to gauge the effectiveness of anti-aging treatments
  • Analyze body water ratios to customize hormone or peptide therapy treatment plans
  • Assess muscle distribution to determine health risks related to disease or frailty
  • Identify declining muscle mass for early intervention

Body Composition Analysis equips both patients and providers with information to better understand the efficacy of interventions and if they need to be adjusted in order to meet nutrition goals.

  • Determine baseline body composition and identify areas needing improvement
  • Assess Basal Metabolic Rate to guide estimated daily nutrient needs for the most effective nutrition programs
  • Track changes for more effective long-term risk identification and reduction

I’m Interested...What Do I Need to Do?

Talk to your medical provider about integrating body composition analysis into your standard-of-care.

  • Advanced Functional Medicine (AFM) Members should have sufficient time built into their appointment to discuss the results with your provider.
  • Functional Primary Care (FPC) Members can schedule a follow-up appointment to review their results if desired.
