Body Composition Analysis
Practitioners: Tara Clapp, Jessica Petrusma
Bioempedance (BIA) body composition analyzers measure body composition electronically.
Body composition analysis is the clinical assessment of tissue and fluid compartments in the human body:
- Fat Mass
- Fat-Free Mass
- Body Cell Mass (Intracellular Mass)
- Extracellular Mass
- Total Body Water
- Intracellular Water
- Extracellular Water
A normal distribution of tissue and fluid in the body is associated with immunity, high function, and longevity.
An abnormal distribution of tissue and fluid in the body is associated with susceptibility, effects of disease and aging, low function, morbidity, and mortality.
Body composition analysis is used in preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and research applications.
