Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)


The Bodystat 1500MDD offers accurate body composition assessment and early cardiovascular risk detection. It’s an ideal weight management tool.

Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA) devices have been used in many medical research studies and is proven to provide excellent levels of accuracy for ongoing health management.

The 1500MDD also boasts new powerful software with upgraded functionality and new early detection tools, covering everything from core cellular health to underlying disease and muscle wastage.

The importance of weight management has become increasingly topical over recent years

Obesity has been linked to the following diseases:

man having a stroke

Coronary heart disease + Stroke

High blood pressure

Type 2 diabetes

Cancers, such as endometrial, breast, and colon cancer

woman coughing

High total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides

Liver and gallbladder disease

Sleep apnea and respiratory problems

man with knee pain

Mental health conditions

Degeneration of cartilage and underlying bone within a joint (osteoarthritis)

Reproductive health complications such as infertility

This BIA machine measures the following

  • Body Fat % and Fat Weight
  • Body Fat Percentage and Fat Weight
  • Lean Mass Percentage and Lean Weight
  • Water Percentage and Total Body Water
  • Plus, Normal Levels for each of the above including ideal body weight based on the subject's actual body composition analysis
  • Dry Lean Weight
  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)* BMR/Body Weight
  • Average Daily Calorie Requirement (Kcal/day)*
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) - Plus Normal Range
  • Waist/Hip Ratio
  • Phase Angle

Did You Know?

Bioelectrical impedance is also a method used in cardiology to assess pulse wave velocity, another biomarker that determines the stiffness of the arteries to infer cardiovascular health.
