The Bodystat®1500MDD is a lightweight, hand-held, battery operated Bio-impedance Analyser which is easy to use and requires no specialist skills. It is a non-invasive device, which measures the impedance value of the body providing quick and effective analysis of body composition. Whole Body analysis, rather than partial body analysis of arms or legs only, is measured for greater accuracy.
The Bodystat®1500MDD has two main cable leads of which each lead has a crocodile/alligator clips, red and black. These clips are attached to the exposed tabs on the electrodes. The subject’s Gender, Age, Height, Weight and optionally, Activity Level and Waist/Hip measurements are entered using the three keypads. It works by passing a safe battery generated signal through the body and measuring the impedance at two frequencies of 5 kHz and 50 kHz.
