InBody body composition measurement, 9 am  – 3 pm, central lobby 

In InBody measurement, a very small electrical current is conducted through the body from the hand and foot electrodes. Body tissues and fluids have an effect on the flow of electrical current and this can be used to analyze the composition of the body. The measurement is done by standing with bare feet in the InBody device. The measurement takes about a minute and you will receive a result report with interpretation instructions. Free, no pre-registration. Organized by the University Sports of Oulu.

How to prepare for a measurement:
Avoid meals and heavy drinking for at least 2 hours and alcohol for 12 hours before measurement. Avoid strenuous physical exertion before measurement. Visit the toilet before the measurement. In women, menstruation may affect the reliability of the test due to fluid retention. The measurement can`t be performed if you have a limb prosthesis, pacemaker, or other medical device implanted in your body or if you are pregnant or ill.
