DEXA vs INBODY body comp test

DEXA vs INBODY body comp test22 May. 2016

Here I share my DEXA scan,

Here I share my DEXA scan, INBODY & VO2 MAX test results. Dexa is said to be one of the most accurate tests for muscle mass and body fat composition. It also tests for bone density to gauge the health of your bones. INBODY is a bio impedance machine that I've been using for a year that claims to be just about as accurate as DEXA. I wanted to see if that was true. I was SHOCKED at my results for every one of these tests.

I've used many modalities of bf testing and I have come to the conclusion that dexa is a complete different animal from all other methods.it's an outlier to be sure.
inbody,skulpt,calipers , bioimpedance all have me between 10-12.5%, however dexa had me at 17%.
I've learned that dexa measures fat in your brain which accounts for inflated numbers as well.
hope this helps.
ps..general rule of thumb is when you get your body fat pct tested using any method NOT including dexa,add 5 pct points to the total and that will give you approximately what dexa would give as your bf %.

Hi, thanks for your question. I don't know the model type but maybe you can tell from the video since I show it. Both scans were done in the morning & fasting as was explained. I did hydrate beforehand since that is important for accuracy on the InBody. The Dexa tech said the InBody is incredibly touchy to get accurate results.

Spartan Wellness Technology

Thanks for this great video. I am a independent distributor and I sell a body composition line called Accuniq. We have found the same thing with the inBody when we test the Accuniq line vs. InBody vs. DEXA. The only thing I can say, customers in the market for BIA tend to be super fit, and are motivated by the low results. When the customer is looking at both units, I often have to send them for a DEXA to demonstrate that the results they are seeing on the inBody are not accurate. It's very hard to convince someone that a higher body fat percentage is the more accurate result.

Hi. Just wanting to share my results, as I'm just an amateur. I use a gym that has an InBody 230. The Inbody is heavily promoted but the numbers it spits out are not accurate. You are correct that it accurately shows trends.

two-point BIA Tanita: 19-20% (tested on multiple machines)
four-point BIA InBody: 16.5-17.5% (tested on multiple machines)
Bod-Pod: 28.7%
Dexa (1st): 26.2%
Dexa (2nd): 26.5% (on a different older machine), BMC readings were way too high so this machine I think is not as good as the other newer Dexa.
Calipers by an experienced trainer: 23.8%
Omron 4-point BIA home scale: 17-18.5%

I have researched this to try to get a handle on why the inbody is so far off:

I believe for men, it bypasses most of the visceral fat in the abdominal cavity.
my inbody results need to grossed up by 53% to match my Dexa results
I believe for women, it bypasses visceral fat AND breast tissue. 24% divided by 14.2% is a correction factor of 69%, which is higher than my correction factor.

this all makes sense.

I believe the Inbody is an accurate measure but the number it provides is artificially low by a preset ratio as it misses key stores of body fat: visceral fat in the abdomen, and breast tissue.

Dustin

I just bought an Inbody 570, which Inbody did you use? Did you use it first thing in the morning before food/water?

Gen Li

Thanks for this review!

You can do both cardio and weights you know. :). Intervals are great for increasing VO2max, but that’s only one of MANY cardio adaptations. HIIT can’t provide the many others. For example, brain-derived neurotrophic factor is raised MUCH more by cardio over time than by HIIT. I’m about your age too, and I run 3x per week and lift the same. On bad weeks, it’s 2x each.

Ali R.

Thank you for your video! I went to Nutrishop today where they used the inbody on me, and I was skeptical and I found your video. This clears things up for me!

Kendyra Corttni

Thanks for your video. I tested 22.4% with InBody and told the tester that her machine must be wrong or broken. She insisted that it was 98% accurate. My last DEXA was 30%.. I also tested with my Omron hand held Bf analyzer (electrical impedance) and it showed 29%. The InBody machine should be recalibrated as it was not close to the other methods.

clickbaker1

This was the 370. I've seen that the 570 has about 0.5 - 1 % difference to DEXA scans

Sybil Cooper

I just had a scan done with Inbody 770. My DEXA scan was in September. They are VERY close. I'm actually shocked as to how close they are. The limbs and trunks are close. The body fat % was a bit off - DEXA 22.6% and InBody 770 19.1%. As an example, Right arm lean mass DEXA 5.9lbs - InBody 770 5.89lbs. Considering that I am nearly always dehydrated, I was surprised that they were close.

I've selected my favourite scales to test out and find the best one, including Withings Cardio, QardioBase and the new Xiaomi Mi Body Scale. The benefits of quantifying yourself are clear and scales are probably one fo the oldest methods of doing that as it goes back to the 18th century. It helps one understand how well they're progressing towards the goal, i.e. lose weight, gain weight, change body composition, gain muscle, lose fat etc. Scales have involved a lot and show you much more than just weight, including fat, muscle, water, bone mass etc.

Delhivines

do we have to manually enter our height in the app or does the machine find out when we step on it?

Sathiyan Naarayan

Hey! Liked ur review! M about to buy one! But I need a confirmation on to how accurate mi scale is! Is the body fat percentage almost accurate to as u take in a dexa scan(which indicates your fat percentage)

Armin H.

Thank you VERY MUCH for this awesome video!

I stood on the scales and it said i was 100% awesome.

Aitolkyn Aidar

Thanks for your review! It is very useful!!! I'm going to buy Xiaomi!

Oehr64

Great comparison! Thanks for that!

Triple I

What a great review! I was set on getting the withings, but now i am rethinking it. Maybe Xiami is the way to go

dk

nice

Mick T

thank you! very thorough. you've just helped me reach my conclusion for the smart scale.

Eraj Ghafoori

Beautiful review, great work, do other gadgets and electronics. You're a natural in staying objective!

Jeremy Wright

thanks for this excellent comparison review. Exactly as you said, consistency is the key. I've been looking at body fat scales for hours and all I wanted was 3 things: 1) consistent 2) easy to use app 3) price Xiaomi tics all these boxes. I considered getting a Xiaomi phone earlier this year, ultimately went for S8, but in researching phones I found Xiaomi to be a solid chinese tech company - so I know there will be no major issues with the app - they have the resources to make it work :)

Petr Hervy

Great review! Really nice job! :)

Goosey Whispers

Xiaomi is terrible im male 5.10ft 36 years old fairly good shape the app says i have a BMI of 32% obese only have a tiny bit of puppy fat around belly and my ideal weight should be 115 pounds / 8.2 stone that sounds pretty dangerous. the hydration level always show dehydrated never changes protein too even when im bulking with high protein meals , and the app only works after i hold the power reset trick trash product.

Jerry J

Thank you so much for this review and your honesty. I really appreciate that.

Janred

This is a really good review, exactly what I was looking for.
BUT one thing that is missing, is a comparision to a professional scale. You can often find those in gyms and probably many different doctors.
I have the Mi Smart Scale 2, great value but I am not yet sure how well it compares to a professional device. When my gym opens back up after Corona I'll have values to compare it.

HGST

xiaomi for the win !

Vipul Shrivastava

Great very helpful

Joey Nguyen

thnx for the great review. I purchases the Xiaomi after I watched your video

Arie Lie

Great review.. Hard to find review for mi scale 2 out there..

anil kumar imandi

What is the use of your video if you can not which one is correct working correct.

Socialcasm

Great video subbed!
However you could have cleared the air by taking an actual test of the said parameters to check the credibility of the scales

Fábio Rodrigues

Nice review! I'm gonna buy the Xiaomi Mi Sclae, thanks!

Lil Dexter

Cool presentation to the product
But lot of information ?

ALI ESSA

The heart and pulse was removed with an update from the withings Cardio. Apparently it wasn't accurate enough anyway the cheaper body+ is a better buy.

Maochan81

Great review. The xiaomi scale is on sale ao i was wondering if it's any good. Bought a digital scale some time ago and it's way too inconsistent.

Greg

Isn't there a way to compare theses scales results with some professional equipment? I've always heard that electricity takes the shortest way, and the shortest way from one leg to the other is missing a lot of body parts...

pedro andrade

Why you stopped making these? ??

Jane Tonpradit

Thanks for this amazing review! This helps a lot.

MusikPiratCH

For my use this video is completely useless. Neither do I use Apple Health nor Google Fit Apps. Indeed the App environment is a very important point. But that's also very individual and you should devide it into scales for user groups (my idea).
Second there is indeed a medical correct scale for bone, fat, water and muscles percentage. Those very expensive scales use 4 points for measuring those percentages! All your three scales mesure only the lower part of the body and calculate then those percentages (fat, bones, water and muscles). That cannot be very percise! :P
For my use I'd need either the (too expensive) Garmin scale or (what I prefer) a cheaper scale where I add the body weight manually. However in a separate app I see all those (not percise details). As long as there is no standard that allows apps where you track your calories to add those scales (or your fitness app) this is the compromis I use!

Sameer Brown

Nice vid. Would've been more helpful if you had gone and got your measurements taken by a dietician so we could have a target when comparing the devices accuracy

djc2609

excellent review. thank you

Goosey Whispers

the Xiaomi Mi is showing me my protein intake amount how the heck does it do that

Billy Hill

excellent review. very dense. subscribed.

Mooksimillian S

Withings body + weight tracks ok. But! - fat, water, bone, muscle monitoring is inaccurate. Variations of 5 to 7 kgs daily is not even close to accurate. worst purchase in a very long time.

zachary wan

Well I Guess il just subtract 4% of BF% if I get the Xiaomi?

Marius

Great review. I just bought a Mi Body right now thanks to you (as I wanted to know about user experience instead of getting advice from someone technically less informed than I am: think CNet and others). I'm not into consumerism so I won't subscribe at this point. But please keep it up and don't deviate from being informative and agreeable!.

Mel Walia

Good review

ESL4FUN

Good review! Very informative! I'm gonna get the xiaomi scale!

Aziz S

I admire the effort you put in this review. Keep it up!

Brian Moore

Thank you Sander for the excellent review of the 3 smart scales in your video from April this year. Very helpful and helped me make up my mind on what scale I should purchase...I went for the Xiaomi Mi. ;)

Mohammad Alshamsi

andreasgtech

Do you know you have just taken Blockhead's intro music, right?

Pua Kelvin

cool, help me make up my mind

Joseph Dan

Tanita and Omron and Garmin is Accurate

Azwan Azli

You should compare the three scales with one credible/high end/expensive/professional scale to see if the parameters and measurement are correct or not..comparing those three among themselves will not tell the accuracy of the measurement

Jason Papai

Seems like this guy works for Xiaomi

How does it measure body composition just by stepping on it? Whats the methodology?

Withings was spelled 'Withigns' in the beginning of the video. ?

Leonardo Pardede

Great Video and good Review!

Beatus Ille

Very good overview. You seem to be a smart dude :-)

Could you test the Qardio base 2? From what I've searched it's consider the best in some cases..
