Anthropometry: corporal composition studies

Anthropometry or “the man’s measure” consists of some technical measurements that express the dimensions of the human body in quantitative terms.

Assessing physical condition and body composition is a basic requirement prior to starting any diet or training programme.

It allows you to impartially track the progression of an individual, decide which exercises suit better to his/her needs, set objectives such as burn fat or lose weight, and set a healthy diet.

If one of your goals is getting fit, the first and most important thing is knowing, by professional means, how healthy you are. Apart from a typical medical check-up, the latest thing is to have a simple and quick anthropometric assessment.

The body composition study includes taking some anthropometric measures.

It also assesses fat levels and its modifications based on the followed training routines and eating habits.

The anthropometric study is the most complete study and consists of evaluating the person’s biotype by measuring the corporal segments, perimeters, diameters and fat creases.

In order to do that Rulifes Wellness Integral professionals use accurate and well calibrated utensils such as a professional scale, a stadiometer, an adipometer, measuring tape and specific tools to measure bone perimeters.

When all of the data has been gathered, we’ll write an individual report that will include the following sections:

  • Personal Assessment
  • Complete report about your body composition
  • Weight, Height, BMI
  • Skin creases
  • Sum of all creases (Siri Method)
  • Body diameters
  • Body perimeters
  • Fat measurement: Mass and %
  • Muscular measurement: Mass and %
  • Residual measurement: Mass and %
  • Hydration measurement: litres and %
  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
  • Ponderal Index (PI)
  • Body Density (BD acc. to Siri)
  • Total Energy Expenditure (TEE)
  • Waist to hip ratio (for controlling cardiovascular risks)
  • Desired weight, objective weight, ideal weight.
  • Graphics and charts of the complementary bioimpedance study.
  • Graphics and charts of corporal components.
  • Somatotype measurement.
  • Identification of the reference somatotype.
  • Somatotype Dispersion Distance (SDD).
  • Next medical check-up
