BioImpedance Analysis
Analyze your body's composition


BioImpedance Analysis

Are you overweight? Sarcopenic? Skinny fat? (yes, sarcopenic obesity is real!) Inflamed? What is the health of your cell membrane to allow nutrients in and waste metabolites out?

Research has shown that body composition correlates directly to a continuum of health, ranging from mortality and morbidity to immunity, longevity, high function, and athletic performance.


The purpose of body composition analysis is to monitor and improve function, productivity, immunity, physical performance, and longevity.

BioImpedance Analysis (BIA) analyzes your weight by looking at fat, protein and body water. When starting a weight loss or muscle building program, using body composition analysis allows you to see changes in fat mass, lean muscle mass, and body fat percentage. This is much more helpful than just stepping on the scale!

The BIA machine at our clinic also provides phase angle, aka cell membrane health. Phase angle measures flow in and out of the cell. Monitoring this metric helps to determine how one is healing from a chronic diseases, Lyme disease, mycotoxicity etc.

When to use BIA

  • To understand your body's unique composition

  • To lose fat mass

  • To gain muscle mass 

  • To check hydration

  • To determine your Basal Metabolic Rate and Total Daily Energy Expenditure and set your correct caloric needs and personalized nutrition

  • To better understand the health of your cells

  • To understand impact of inflammation on your body composition

  • To monitor your progress towards your body goals and change course as needed

  • A great tool to biohack your health. Precise, individualized, personalized data means better health decisions!

How BioImpedance Analysis Works

Test Preparation

Prior to taking the test, do not consume alcohol within 24 hours prior, no exercise, caffeine or food within 4 hours prior, and 2-4 glasses of water within 2 hours prior.

During the Test

You will lie supine on the treatment table and remove all metal jewelry. I will attach electrode leads to your right wrist and ankle. After 120 seconds, the test is complete.

The test transmits a low grade alternating electrical current through the body. This current is impeded by the different types of materials (fat, muscle and water) it comes into contact with. It is this impedance that us used to calculate lean body mass, fat mass, intracellular and extracellular water and phase angle.

Contraindications to Testing:

Patients with pacemakers and pregnant women.
