What does BIA stand for?


  Bioelectrical independence analysis (BIA) is used to estimate body composition by applying a small electrical current through the body and measure the impedance.

  The human body is mainly comprised of water, protein, bone, and fat. A delicate balance in body composition is vital for health and wellness. Imbalanced body composition may result in illness such as obesity and edema. By BIA, body composition parameters such as body fat percentage, skeletal muscle distribution and body hydration status can be estimated and can help better understanding for your health.

  BIA is a simple, safe, non-invasive, and painless method. It can be measured independently without help. The process involves the placement of electrodes onto the subject, and the test process only takes 3 to 4 minutes.
