active patients
maintaining high function

The benefit of proper diet and physical activity throughout one's life is clear - better health (1). According to Professors Evans and Rosenberg (2) from the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, by adopting a particular pattern of activity and eating, it is possible for virtually anyone to slow the aging process and maintain functional capacity and vitality for the longest period of time.

Their research led to the identification of key biomarkers, which can be used to chart the progression of sarcopenia, the disease of aging. Bioimpedance analysis (BIA) is a useful tool for monitoring several of these parameters.
