WHAT IS BIOELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE ANALYSIS (BIA)?

Have you seen Visbody ads talking about BIA technology and wonder, “What is that?”

You’re not alone!

But, you have probably heard of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) before if you are in the health/fitness/wellness industry.

BIA is a simple, quick, and non-invasive technique for measuring body composition. That is, the percentage of fat, water, and muscle in your body.

BIA works by sending a small electrical current through the body.

The current encounters resistance as it flows through different tissues.

Fatty tissue has a high level of resistance, while lean tissue such as muscle has a lower level of resistance.

By measuring the amount of resistance to the current, BIA can estimate total body water and lean body mass.

From these estimates, it is possible to calculate body fat percentage.

The accuracy of BIA depends on a number of factors, including the quality of the device, the experience of the operator, and the size and composition of the person being tested.

In general, BIA is considered to be a very reliable method for estimating body composition in healthy adults.

If you are interested in learning more about BIA or seeing if it is right for you, talk to a healthcare professional.

What makes the BIA technology unique in Visbody is that it is combined with Instant Body Scan (IBS).

The Instant Body Scan (IBS) is a whole-body, three-dimensional (3D) imaging system.

It uses multiple cameras and light sources to capture over 200 measurements of your body in less than 60 seconds.

These measurements are then used to generate a 3D image of your body.

The IBS is different from other body scanners on the market because it does not require you to undress or be inside a pod.

You simply stand on the platform and the scan begins automatically.

The IBS is also unique because it captures detailed measurements of both your internal and external body composition.

Internal measures include things like muscle mass and bone density.

As you can imagine, bringing these two technologies together is quite powerful making Visbody the most accurate and comprehensive body scanner on the market.

It has the ability to capture more than 50 types of data in more than 6 different categories.

The categories include:

Comprehensive Body Composition Analysis that measures 15 elements

3D All Dimensional Body Models

9 Smart 3D Posture Assessments

9 Highly Accurate Body Circumference Measurements

3D Smart Body Comparisons to show your trends in body composition

Shoulder Joint Range of Motion Measurements
