CHPS offers free body composition analysis using InBody 230 for AFMC DoD Civilians. This machine is able to determine your weight, skeletal muscle mass, percentage of body fat, total body water, and basal metabolic rate. The InBody scale uses a multi-segmental bio-impedance analysis for a fast and accurate measurement. This means that you can see how much muscle is located in your right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg, and trunk.

To get your free body composition measurement, simply bring your up-to-date HRA Wellness Profile Certificate (you can print yours at to one of these upcoming screenings:
