Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a quick, safe and painless technology utilized by leading health care facilities and universities all over the world. BIA measures body composition by sending a safe, low electrical current through the body, with just four small adhesive pads. The current moves easily through the fluids and lean tissue, but encounters resistance when moving through fat tissue. BIA provides a window into subtle changes in your patient’s body composition. You can safely and accurately assess your patient’s body composition based upon the needs and goals of each individual patient, at intervals from weekly to annually – you choose. Today’s patients expect therapeutic lifestyle changes to be part of their integrative treatment plan. This accurate view of ‘what you’re really made of’ helps you design a wellness plan to help your practice and your patients reach customized goals.
