Bio Impedance Analysis

A quick measure for Muscle Mass & Fat %

We are able to quickly assess and record a patient’s body composition using the Tanita BC1000.

It is most useful during weight loss programs to ensure fat is reduced and muscle mass is protected.

This technology also records the results on a chart showing progress over time.

Bio Impedance Analysis uses a very low electrical current which is passed through the trunk of the body from leg to leg, and through each foot. The resistance to this signal is assessed by the processor to determine body composition.

The readout is accurate to about 5%. The best accuracy is achieved on an empty stomach; the information becomes most useful as the number of readouts increase and are graphed on the computer.
