This is the gold standard in testing for fat to lean muscle ratio. Your cellular fluid balance is a marker for health. Measurements taken from the ankle and wrist give a fairly accurate reading of these parameters. Your biological age corresponds with algorithms calculated by the software.
Parameters measured during a Bio-impedance test include the Resistance and Reactance which is a measurement of electrical resistance of the body cells, which is proportional to the percentage of body fat and inversely proportional to total body water. The lower the resistance, the better your health.
Phase angle is one of the best indicators for cellular health and function available today. The phase angle represents the relationship between fat, muscle, fluid balance and cellular membrane health.
Weight is measured on the basis of height, gender and frame size.
Active Tissue Mass includes skeletal muscle, viscera (nervous tissue), heart, kidney, liver, lung, and smooth muscle.
As you can see, this is a very comprehensive test that has gold standard evidence to back it up. A once a year maintenance test to keep you on track, or get you back on track.
