What is involved in a Body Composition Analysis or Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis?
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is a method for measuring body fat %, free-fat mass, body water %, and other structural components that affect overall weight distribution. A Body Composition Analysis or Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) Scale estimates body fat percent in different regions of your body which helps your provider develop and adjust your medical management to optimize weight loss. The BIA scale uses other data collected by your provider such as your height, your gender, and weight measurements to determine your body fat percent.
Our body composition scale uses “Ohms Modulation Logic (OML)” to avoid the need to meet a litany of pre-test conditions which other scales require for accurate measurement. Pre-Test conditions such as intake of food and/or water 6 hours before the test, intake of alcohol 12 hours prior to test, exercise 8 hours prior to test, 8 hours of sleep on the night before testing, and timing of testing can alter accurate measurements. These errors are called the Body Fat Bounce Effect. By using OML technology, we can eliminate errors without the need to meet pre-testing conditions and analyze what pounds are made of and how it relates to your health and progress during treatment.
