A bioelectrical impedance analysis is a method for determining the composition of the human body. A weak electric current is passed through the body and the resistance (impedance) is measured. The resistance depends on the length, volume and conductivity of the different body tissues. With the help of mathematical models, the resistance enables conclusions to be drawn about the proportion of fat, water, muscles, bone mass and other components.

The measurement requires you to stand barefoot on the scale. It takes about 3 min. and is followed by an evaluation.
