BIO IMPEDANCE ANALYSIS
Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a screening tool that is used to determine body composition of an individual. It is an accurate, non invasive tool which helps the patient and practitioner understand the level of the following:
- Percentages of Body Fat , including Visceral Fat
- Percentages of Muscle Tissue
- Percentages of Hydration Levels
- Intracellular and Extracellular Fluid
- Body Mass Index
- Metabolic Rate and Calorie Requirement
It is useful as a monitoring tool for all types of health programs, including weight loss and wellness programs and an important part of any comprehensive health and nutrition assessment.
Why is body composition important to your health?
A normal balance of body fat to lean body mass is associated with good health and longevity. Excess fat in relation to lean body mass, a condition known as altered body composition, can greatly increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more. BIA enables early detection of an improper balance in your body composition, which allows for earlier intervention and prevention.
BIA also provides the measurement of fluid and body mass that can be a critical assessment tool for your current state of health.
BIA serves to measure your progress as you work to improve your health. Improving your BIA measurement, or maintaining a healthy BIA measurement, can help keep your body functioning properly for healthy ageing and reduced risk of illness. With the BIA results a personalized dietary plan can be tailored complemented by nutritional supplements and exercise to help support optimal health and well-being for a lifetime.
