The body composition analyzer is abbreviated as BCA, which uses the bioelectrical impedance analysis method to measure the bioelectrical impedance of various parts of the human body, and calculates the body composition through algorithms according to the difference in the conductivity of different components of the human body. The body composition analyzer is an instrument that is useful for everyone. It is not an instrument for diagnosing specific diseases, but an instrument for rapid and non-invasive measurement and evaluation of a person's physical condition. Its uses are as follows:
1. The body composition analyzer machine can be used for the diagnosis of obesity and the evaluation of nutritional status.
2. The body composition analyzer can be used for edema, osteoporosis, body balance, changes in body water after dialysis, and changes in body composition after hormone therapy.
3. The body composition analyzer can be used for the determination of body fat ratio and fat distribution and can be used for a health check and diagnosis of geriatric diseases, such as: hypertension, diabetes, arteriosclerosis and hyperlipidemia.
4. The body composition analyzer can be used for weight control, fat loss, muscle training, nutritional balance and diagnosis of diseases, etc., providing a scientific and effective basis.
5. The body composition analyzer can be used to monitor the total amount of human cells in patients with cancer and other wasting diseases (such as HIV).
The body composition analyzer is based on the new DXA method to measure body composition: body fat, weight, BMI (body mass index), non-fat mass, and other health indexes, effectively indicating the physical health of the guests. On the basis of DXA, the DSM method has become a simpler and more direct method for conducting a full body analysis machine. The test results using the two measurement methods show 98% similarity.
In traditional physical examinations, weight and height are used as the criteria for judging health, and weight is divided by the square of height to obtain the "BMI", which is used to describe the health of the person. But a heavy person with a lot of muscles and little fat is often classified as overweight or obese, but in fact, he is a very standard healthy person. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze the body composition, such as fat, muscle, and water. The body fat rate can be used to accurately evaluate a person's health, and the basal metabolic rate (BMR) can be used to individually analyze energy requirements, so as to rationalize health management, promote physical fitness, and achieve individualized health and rehabilitation.
