INFORMATION ON BODY COMPOSITION

PRINCIPLES OF FULL BODY SENSING CALCULATIONS

mWhat is Full Body Sensing?

Full Body Sensing provides a comprehensive understanding of your body composition to help you reach and/or maintain your fitness goals. Unlike other body composition monitors that rely on foot-to-foot measurements, Omron’s monitor measures the whole body (arm to foot) which provides a clinically-proven accurate profile.

How Omron calculates your body composition:
Omron’s algorithm focuses on the Bioelectrical Impedance Method as well as height, weight, age and gender.

Bioelectrical Impedance Method: The Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale estimates the body fat percentage by the Bioelectrical Impedance Method. Muscles, blood, bones and body tissues with high water content conduct electricity easily. On the other hand, body fat does not store much water, therefore has little electric conductivity. The Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale sends an extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500μA through your body to determine the amount of water in each tissue. You will not notice or feel the electrical current. The ratios of the water in your upper and lower body change throughout the day – as gravity pulls more water into your lower extremities. This means the electrical impedance of the body also varies – if more water is in your legs, other monitors such as foot-to foot may show incorrect body fat readings. The Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale takes measurements from both hands and feet – which reduces the influence water movement makes on your body composition results.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to naturally heal and naturally improve overall performance. This is accomplished by inserting sterilized, stainless, steel needles ( that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter serious biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illness of injuries.


Muscle stimulation helps to maintain muscle viability, reduce edema, enhance circulation, and relax muscle for an increase in the range of motion. A slight tingling sensation is felt and as the body becomes accustomed to the initial settings, the intensity is raised. Many painful symptoms can be relived with the application of muscle stimulation.Muscle Stimulation


Ultrasound provides deep heating affects to body tissue, reduces muscle spasm, increases blood flow, and increase soft tissue elasticity. Screams of sound waves are transmitted to a small volume of tissue, which causes the molecules of the tissue to vibrate. Any time cells move at high speed, heat is produced, thus producing a comfortable, calm healing process.Ultrasound

Hot Pack

Hot packs are used to provide heat therapy for minor muscle joint pain, stiffness, and muscle spasms. They deliver superficial moist heat, improving blood flow to injured body parts, promoting delivery to nutrients, and removal of wastes. Hot packs also promote muscle relaxation and reduce edema and inflammation.

Cold Pack

Cold packs are used to provide cold therapy for minor pain and swelling. When cold is applied it reduces blood flow and limits fluid accumulation, therefore reducing inflammation. Cold packs are also effective in decreasing muscle guarding and spasm.

Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental traction helps with blood flow and creates additional movement in spinal joints. The table performs a gentle form of traction and alignment to the spine. It helps promote normal joint function and range of motion. This therapy is beneficial for patients that have severely restricted or tight back.

Cervical Traction

Cervical traction is used to mobilize soft tissue; this is a very comfortable procedure that often results in an increased range of motion in directions that were stiff and painful.

Massage Therapy

The goal of Massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and does so through the manipulation of the soft tissue.
