Trainer Tools

IntelaMetrix, Inc. is a technology company founded in 2004 to design, develop and market cutting-edge assessment tools for the health, fitness and wellness industries. It is our mission to provide products that promote healthier lifestyles for everyone.

It is our belief that technology and innovation in measuring and monitoring health not only allows for timely intervention, but will motivate and sustain a long term commitment to physical activity, proper nutrition and healthier lifestyles. Our flagship product, the BodyMetrix System was developed with those principles in mind. The BodyMetrix System combines a truly innovative hand-held ultrasound wand with user friendly software to fully assess clients and patients and track their progress over time.

The BodyMetrix System uses ultrasound to accurately measure fat thickness and calculate Body Fat % and weight distribution.

Below is an example when using a 3 site Formula. The BodyMetrix System offers formulas that use as few as 1 site or as many as 9 sites to calculate accurate Body Fat %.

How It Works

The BodyMetrix works by using ultrasound. When ultrasound waves penetrate tissue, reflections occur at different tissue boundaries. For example, there are strong ultrasound reflections at fat-muscle and muscle-bone.

Ultrasound allows the BodyMetrix to detect the true fat thickness at each measurement point. By making measurements at multiple points on the body an accurate body fat % can be determined.

Also, ultrasound measurements are not affected by hydration, exercise level, and caffeine intake, therefore providing consistent results.

Ultrasound may sound intimidating, but if you’ve ever heard an echo you’re a long way to understanding the graph and how the BodyMetrix System uses ultrasound to measure tissue thickness. You hear an echo when sound travels through air and reflects from a wall or mountain and comes back to your ear. If you time how long it takes for you to hear the echo you can calculate how far away the reflecting object is. The BodyMetrix System generates an ultrasound signal that travels through tissue and then records the reflected signal.

Continuing the echo analogy, the BodyMetrix device plays the role of your mouth and your ear. Ultrasound waves travel in tissue and strong reflections occur at the boundary of different tissue types, for example, fat-muscle and muscle-bone.

The graph above shows a typical measurement. The horizontal axis corresponds to the thickness or depth of tissue and the vertical axis is the reflected signal the first peak (1) is the fat-muscle boundary. The smaller peaks (2) are different structure which can include connective tissues in the muscle layer. The third peak (3) is the muscle-bone border. It’s important to note that the BodyMetrix measures the true tissue thickness unlike calipers which measure a skin fold thickness which can be anywhere from 1 to 3 times the true fat thickness.
