We hope that you are excited about the upcoming wrestling season. As you start to prepare for the season, we wanted to make sure you are aware of an alternative device that can be used for the weight management program at your school.

The InBody 120 unit has been approved to be used in Kentucky for measuring/tracking body fat in wrestlers.

As a matter of background, the InBody 120 unit is the official BIA Scale for the NWCA. The NWCA partnered with InBody after it was proven to be the most accurate of the three BIA scales tested (Tanita, InBody and Rice Lake) in an independent validation study at Cal State Fullerton. This study did go through peer review and was published in a reputable journal.

Other benefits to use of the InBody 120 unit include:

  • $1,500 cost which is a major discount for a BIA Scale of this magnitude (Regular Pricing is $2,500.00)
  • Additional $500 credit by turning in a Tanita Scale
  • The most accurate body fat reading out of all BIA scales and can also be used as a standard weight scale
  • Portable and ease of use
  • Get body fat readings in 17 seconds
  • Can be used for all sports at your school to provide gold-standard assessments on all athletes
  • Track your wrestlers’ measurements throughout the season
