Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is sex-specific, multicomponent model-derived prediction formulae, to estimate total body water (TBW), fat-free mass (FFM), total body fat (TBF), and percentage body fat (%BF). Fat and lean components of the body including TBF, FFM and TBW are important constituents that link obesity, aging, and chronic disease with subsequent morbidity and mortality. Scale weight is not an indicator of an individual’s fat, lean or health. Body composition analysis or BIA can form the basis for a wide variety of therapeutic, health and fitness prescriptions. Body composition analysis, together with nutrition and exercise prescriptions provide the foundation upon which further treatment is based.

Only body composition analysis or BIA can determine how much muscle, fat and body cell mass are lost or gained as the result of a health care professional’s recommendation.

What are the benefits of a good body composition prescription?

1) Analyze past, present and future body composition data interactively.
2) Create prescriptions for change.
3) Visualize the effectiveness of a prescription with projected and historical graphs thereby helping increase motivation for positive change.

The Ultimate Outcome Is Improved Health And Increased Longevity!
