How accurate is the test compared to DEXA or displacement methods?
Our equipment matches the gold standard at 98% with +/- 2% of percent body fat range compared against DEXA. Our technology is accurate as water displacement (Hydrostatic weighing) or air displacement (air displacement plethysmography). Body Analysis are performed using the same research-grade machines used by hospitals, universities, and professional athletic facilities, such as the Mayo Clinic, National Institute of Health, and the Navy Seals.
Is the electrical current during the test harmless? Will I feel it?
Bioelectrical impedance uses very minor currents which are absolutely harmless to the body. The electrical signal sent through the body is too low to feel or detect. Its safety has been proven by acquiring medical system’s authorization in Korea, Europe, and the United States. Many medical institutions around the world are using this method.
Are there any individuals who should not be tested with the equipment?
- People with implanted defibrillators or pacemakers should not be tested. The electrical current that is sent through the body is extremely low, but for precaution, we are not able to test these individuals.
