More on the InBody Scale

Physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle are tools in a treatment methodology of alcohol and drug rehabilitation that focuses on meaning. As clients learn to replace their negative coping skills with new positive ones such as physical activity, they learn to construct meaning for their lives and develop resiliency against the temptations of drugs and alcohol. Technology such as the Advanced Analysis InBody 570 scale can be a helpful tool.

The InBody 570 goes beyond traditional body composition analysis measuring fat, muscle, and total body water. Total body water data can be divided into intracellular water and extracellular water, values important for understanding a user's fluid distribution in medical, wellness, and fitness contexts. Safe, low-level currents are sent through the body via hand and foot electrodes. The impedance the currents encounter are measured in order to derive body composition. InBody's patented BIA technology provides accurate and consistent outputs that are highly correlated with gold standard methods.

Persons interested in learning more about how fitness and physical exercise are used as treatment methodologies at the Sunshine Coast Health Centre are urged to visit the website and reach out via the "contact" form. It should be noted that the Centre also produces a very popular directory to Canadian drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/.
