InBody-measurements 2.-3.11.2022 at Kontinkangas and Linnanmaa campuses

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.

UniMove organizes body composition measurements on campuses:

  • Wed 2.11. at 9-15 Linnanmaa, orange coat racks
  • Thu 3.11. at 9-15 Kontinkangas, Kieppi-lobby (Aapistie 5A)

UniMove's customers (students and staff members who have paid UniMove's sports fee): The measurement is free of charge for UniMove customers, proof of customership must be shown before the measurement. You can come for the measurement at a time that suits you, no pre-registration.

Other students and staff members: The price of the measurement is 5 euros. The measurement is purchased from UniMove's online store and the receipt for the purchase must be shown when coming to the measurement. You can come for the measurement at a time that suits you, no pre-registration.

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.
