Optimizing Your InBody Testing Experience

Once you open your doors for business, it may be necessary to modify your testing procedures to adhere to any new state and/or local health guidelines while still delivering an exceptional testing experience for your clients.

Your InBody comes standard with an assortment of advanced features and resources designed to help you adapt your testing experience.

We will walk you step-by-step on how you can optimize your InBody experience.

Before the InBody Test

Prep Your Clients

To help maintain social distancing and minimize contact during testing, you can share the videos below with your clients. The videos will explain what your client should do ahead of time for a more accurate test and how to test on the device. This will allow you to answer any questions before they arise.

Immediately before testing, encourage all of your clients to wash their hands with warm, soapy water for more than 20 seconds. If your facility doesn’t have a restroom, place a hand sanitizer station next to your InBody. Make sure their hands are dry before they move onto the next step.

After your clients wash their hands, instruct them wipe their palms and soles with InBody Tissue to clean dirt, debris, and sweat and increase electrical conductivity for testing.

Give Your Clients a Contact-Free Experience

Voice Guidance Testing

While your client tests on the device, the InBody’s voice guidance and on-screen instructions will help guide them through the testing procedure, allowing you to maintain social distancing requirements.

Sanitation Guidance

We recommend that you disinfect your InBody device after every test. It is important to note that there is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting your equipment.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

Cleaning removes dirt, germs, and impurities from surfaces or objects. When you clean, you physically remove germs from surfaces using soap (or detergent) and water. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it reduces their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects using chemicals. This process does not clean dirty surfaces but kills germs on a surface after cleaning. Disinfecting can further reduce the risk of spreading infection.

To avoid damaging your device, do not clean it with soap and water; instead, you must disinfect it.

To keep your InBody free of dirt and impurities, ask your clients to clean their hands and feet before they test.

Below, you will find detailed instructions for disinfecting your InBody.

Disinfecting Your InBody

To help provide a hygienic testing experience for your clients and employees, we recommend that you follow this procedure after every test:

1

To adequately disinfect your device, we recommend that you

Wear disposable gloves and use 70% (or above) Isopropyl Alcohol Wipes to disinfect the InBody while paying special attention to the hand electrodes, footplate, screen, and any other parts of the device that are frequently touched
2

To prevent damage to the device

  • Do not spray or pour liquids directly on your InBody device
  • Do not immerse any part of the InBody device in liquid
  • Do not use cleaning agents composed of quaternary ammonium compounds such as benzalkonium/benzalkonium chloride, which may cause discoloration and corrosion
