What is the measurement of body composition?


Measurement of body composition determines how much our body is made of fat and fat-free mass.

Why is the body composition important?


  • Measurement of body composition provides a better estimate of fitness and health compared to the Body Mass Index because this measurement does not only counting for body weight and height.
  • Understanding the composition of fat and fat-free mass in the body can help to determine whether someone needs to form more muscle or lose fat.
  • Measurement of body composition can also reveal certain basic health problems and provide insight for diet and exercise determination.

Aim


  • Helping educational institutions, academics, and researchers to carry out research related to body composition.
  • Helping educational institutions, academics, and researchers to get results that are in accordance with standards related to body composition.
  • Helping educational institutions, academics, and researchers to provide proper diet and exercise determinations according to one’s body composition.
