BIA stands for bioelectrical impedance analysis , and means that resistances ( impedances ) are measured . Weak current is passed through the body and on the basis of the conductivity of liquids can be determined over the body of water, the body composition . The measurement is not harmful .
The unique and patented InBody technology is a further development of the BIA measurement . When InBody check-up can therefore be analyzed separately the exact muscle and fat distribution in the arms , legs and torso . The result is precise individual measurement results , unlike conventional scales and analyzers .
