Specifically, it applies the principle of displacement to calculate body fat versus muscle, tissue and other body elements.
We have been utilizing this fat testing method for more than two decades, so you can feel confident that we are true experts. You can schedule this innovative test for yourself at a convenient time in our facility. We also offer mobile fat testing services for gyms and other businesses throughout Orange County upon request.
If you have used other tests for measuring body fat in the past, you may have wondered how reliable they are. While some tests offered in Los Angeles County and Riverside County require you to simply stand on a scale-like device for a few minutes to get a reading, FitnessWave OC offers hydrostatic body fat testing that is significantly more accurate than the alternatives.
As part of the testing process, the individual is submerged in a tank of warm water in his or her bathing suit. Through the principle of displacement, lean body mass essentially will sink while fat will float. Weights are compared on land and in water. This is a complicated and accurate method for measuring body fat, and we have been utilizing it for several decades. Even our company owner uses this technology periodically to measure his own body fat percentage.
