What is BIA Technology
Our ACCUNIQ body composition analysers use Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology.
This advanced form of technology has been proven to be safe and effective in taking body measurements.
Rather than simply measuring weight, ACCUNIQ BIA analysers measure the composition of your body. In physical fitness, body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, water and muscle in human bodies. Two people of the same gender and body weight may look completely different because they have a different body composition.
By using technology to accurately measure body composition we can inform and educate people about their internal body make up and devise exercise routines to assist them in reaching more reasonable goals linked to a more healthy lifestyle, as many unhealthy dieting and exercise behaviours stem from a distorted body image.
People join gyms because they want to change their bodies, surely we should be in a position the help them achieve this through education and realistic target setting. We can only achieve this if we have accurate information on body composition to start with
How it works
When you stand on the body composition analyser a harmless, low level electrical signal passes from the eight touch electrodes through your body, carrying out a full , direct, segmental measurement of your arms, legs and trunk.
ACCUNIQ use multiple frequencies to analyse both your intra and extra cellular spaces to gain a higher accuracy
The way it works is that the electrical signal passes quickly through any water that is present in hydrated muscle tissue but it slows down when it meets fat tissue. This is measured and used to scientifically calculate body composition measurements. Depending on the analyser these body composition measurements can be provided in under 20 seconds.
