BioScan 916S combines the state of art capabilities of the 916 and is calibrated to include the general population, Sports and Athletes including clinical patients.
BioScan a practical, non-invasive, non-intrusive, highly accurate portable diagnostic monitoring system for assessing Body Composition, Nutritional, Fluid monitoring in both health and clinical patients.
BioScan uses scientific patented method of measuring Electrical Impedance. A total of four electrodes are used (tetrapolar). 2 electrodes are applied to the hand and two to the foot. A low-level battery operated electric current is passed through the body and the Impedance (Z) measurement is the frequency dependent opposition of a conductor or flow of an alternating electric current and is a make up of two vectors Resistance (R) and Reactance (Xc) measured at a particular frequency and described mathematically"> Impedance, A healthy individual will have a phase angle of between 4 to 15 degrees.
