overview

The BIA 450 Bioimpedance Analyzer is a portable, battery-powered bioimpedance (BIA) analyzer. Patient assessments are conducted using a connection between the analyzer and the wrist and ankle of the patient. Connections to the patient are through standard ECG sensor pad electrodes. Resistance and reactance, the two components of impedance, are measured directly from the body. Using regression analysis the analyzer computes:

Resistance (R)
Reactance (X)
Phase Angle (α)
Body Capacitance (C)

Fat-Free Mass (FFM)
Body Cell Mass (BCM)
Extracellular Mass (ECM)
Fat Mass (FM)

ECM/BCM
Body Mass Index (BMI)
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

Total Body Water (TBW)
Intracellular Water (ICW)
Extracellular Water (ECW)
TBW/Fat-Free Mass
TBW/Total Weight

Results are printed using the analyzer's built-in thermal printer. The analyzer is powered by a built-in battery pack. Carrying case, battery charger, patient cable, sensor pad electrodes, print rolls, and user's guide are included.
