How does the BIA work?
The bio-electric impedance works by sending a minimal electrical current through your body. Multiple frequencies are sent though the body to assess the resistance through the various tissues of the body. Different tissues of the body have different hydration levels due to electrolytes, cell membranes and the natural properties of the tissues. Depending on the tissue, a frequency will pass through it at different rates. The BIA measures the speed at which these various frequencies pass through respective tissues.
