BIA is a safe an accurate way of determining body composistion. It uses four electrodes placed on the base of the fingers and toes that measures the electrical impedance, or opposition to the flow of an electrical current through the body tissues. BIA can measure and track changes in the amounts of body fluids, fat tissue, and lean body mass, which includes your muscles and organs. It can also determine the fluid composition inside and outside your cells, which in turn can give us an idea of your cell health and functioning.
The machine Melissa uses has been imported from overseas from the leading company in the industry. It is one of the highest quality machines used in any clinical setting and is backed up with the most up-to-date technology.
