What is Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA)?
Bioimpedance analysis uses frequencies to measure fluid in the body.
What is VLA50?
VLA50 is a device which measures impedance at 50kHz. VLA50 software then calculates body water and body composition using equations based on underwater weighing and DXA. BIA has shown a strong correlation with DXA.
Information Provided by VLA50
- Body Fat Mass (kg/%)
- Active Lean Mass (kg/%)
- Total Body Water (Hydration)
- Extracellular Water
- Intracellular Water
- Cellular Function and Health
- Biological age
BIA enables me to assess your health and ensure weight reduction is extracellular water and body fat. As a result I can assist you to achieve the optimal body composition.
