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.

Multi-frequency BIA technology

All our body composition analyser measure at a minimum of 3  frequencies.

The use of additional frequencies provides an enhanced level of accuracy over devices using only one or two frequencies. It also makes it possible to view extra information relating to water within the body, providing a more detailed insight into personal health. Specifically hydration status and odema (water retention)

Who can use it

The Body composition analyser can be used by anyone from young children to the elderly to track body composition changes over time. It is a very valuable tool to ensure an accurate baseline at the start of setting an exercise or weight management target and then being able to quantify changes over time.
The device should not be used by those with medical implants such as pacemakers as it can interfere with the signal.

How can I view the results

Results are displayed on the LCD touch screen, can be printed on A4 Result sheets. The client tracking Manager software, allows for the results to be viewed over a period of time.

However with the launch of the new and exciting Manager App, clients can take an image of the on screen QR code and have their results instantly uploaded onto their smart phone.
