Bioimpedance Analysis



Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA) provides a number of different measurements which are indicative of your overall state of health. By using these numbers as a baseline, your progress toward greater health can be monitored. The BIA is a body fat analyzer and analyzes body fat, lean body mass, fat weight, basal metabolic rate, body mass index, phase angle and hydration status broken down into intra-cellular water versus extra-cellular water.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, or Bio-Impedance Analysis, commonly known as B.I.A. is a method of assessing your body composition; which is the ratio between fat and lean body mass. As an integral part of health and nutrition assessment, BIA can assist health practitioners in numerous ways. Excess body fat in relation to lean body mass, a condition known as 'altered body composition', can greatly increase your risks to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses.
BIA fosters early detection of an improper balance in your body composition, which allows prevention, and, if necessary, intervention, to counteract negative health effects. BIA also serves to measure your progress as you work to inmprove your health.
