    They're more than a bathroom scales!

    When I saw the InBody devices, I thought they were high tech scales, but when I heard the prices, (they start at about $6,000 and go up to $13,000 or so), I knew they did more than tell you your weight. They actually tell you 'what you're made of'. Or at least what you're body is made of. Here’s a little bit from their press release to give you an idea of what they’re capable of doing. “InBody has revolutionized the field of Body Composition Analysis with the InBody line of body composition analyzers, using Direct Segmental Multi-Frequency BIA and patented 8-Point Tactile technology. Standing on the InBody for a quick non-invasive test provides users with their body fat percentage, BMR, segmental muscle balance, body water, progress graphs, and more. InBody’s body composition analyzers are renowned for their high accuracy and reproducibility. Many more details are available at the company website. I assume these devices are more aimed at health clubs, doctor’s offices, and maybe a really rich guy’s or gal’s bathroom.

    This one, the InBody Dial seems a little more down-to-earth at about $299.00 


    While looking around the web at various InBody devices, I came across this fascinating YouTube Video about how much body sculpting can be done with just the computer. No weights or exercise necessary!
