BIA Technology

A Non-invasive Method for Body Composition Analysis

What is Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)?

MTS devices use a method called Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to measure body composition, which divides your weight into different components such as lean body mass and fat mass to assess health and nutrition.

Revolutionizing BIA Technology

MTS has improved existing BIA technology to provide accurate body composition analysis to patients and professionals .MTS’s body composition analyzers rely on two pillars of technology to give you extremely accurate and precise BIA results.

8-Point Tactile Electrode System

The 8-point touch electrode method using the thumb electrode produces an exceptionally high reproducibility rate in results.

Multiple Frequencies

Using multiple currents at varying frequencies to provide the most precise body water analysis.

8-Point Tactile Electrode System with Thumb Electrodes

The 8 points of contact come from the two thumb electrodes, two palm electrodes, two sole electrodes, and two heel electrodes.

The anatomical design of the hand electrode creates a simple holding position that is easy to reproduce. Using a voltage thumb electrode ensures that current measurement always starts at the wrist; same measurement values are returned even when the patient changes the holding position of the electrode or the contact points on the hand.

Multiple Frequencies

A high-frequency current can pass through the cell membrane well, making it possible to measure both the intra and extracellular water. Inversely, a low-frequency current hardly passes through the cell membrane. Therefore, it tend to flow through extracellular water, measuring extracellular water.

MTS’s body composition analysis devices are capable of measuring both the intracellular water and extracellular water as it utilizes multi frequencies of 20kHz 50kHz and 100kHz.
