BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS
OUR ANALYSERS USE A SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED TEST KNOWN AS BIOELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE ANALYSIS (BIA)
The BIA test works by sending a light and harmless electric current through ones body. A body’s total weight consists of various masses like fat, muscles, bones, and water. Each of these conducts electricity in different ways.
By measuring the electric resistance of these masses in a body, the test is able to accurately measure what percentage of total body weight is made up from each. Overall weight on its own is of little meaning and far too many people base their diet regimen on what they see on the bathroom scale. Even if ones weight is within a normal range, they can still have unhealthy or altered body composition. This is an integral part of a health and nutrition assessment.
BIA was the science that was originally developed for the use in monitoring hospital patients after surgery, as well as astronauts after space travel. Nowadays, this technology is used in many areas of medicine, from Nephrology to Oncology, in Sports Science, Fitness, Medical wellness, in Nutrition, Weight Management and Lifestyle counseling.
The scan process is quick, user-friendly and non-invasive. With over 20 measuring parameters, our analysers are the best way to accurately track muscle gains, fat loss, hydration levels, muscular imbalances etc.
