What is BIA?
Bioelectrical Impedence Analysis (BIA) is a quick, safe and non invasive screening of the body to ascertain body composition and cellular health. The voltage drop in a small electrical current applied to the body is measured, providing raw data on the ability of cells to hold, transfer and resist current.
MetaScan Practitioners are trained in the use of the Quadscan BIA device. This is the device of choice for clinicians wishing to use an affordable, trusted and accurate machine which is portable and convenient to use.
The Quadscan measures cellular health, nutritional status and fluid shifts in and out of cells. This device is used extensively within international diabetes, obesity and renal clinics, as well as hospital ICU and oncology wards for lymphedema monitoring.
MetaScan is Personalised Medicine
The Body's cellular health and composition provide important insights into the impact of each patient's diet and lifestyle choices, nutritional requirements, genetics and environment.
