BIA is much more sophisticated than your bathroom scale, but just as painless and almost as quick. BIA is a simple procedure that can be performed right in the office in a matter of minutes with the help of a sophisticated computerized analysis.
The analyzer calculates your tissue and fluid compartments using imperceptible electrical current passed through the pads placed on one hand and foot as you lie comfortably clothed on an exam table. The current measures impedance and reactance of the cells in your body (see: Interpreting BIA Results) which calculates a large amount of data on your current state of health. In just minutes, we can have a very accurate measurement to help create an effective personalized program to improve your health status.
