BMI is the most commonly used indicator to evaluate overweight and obesity, but it cannot distinguish changes in body composition. Over recent years, it has been demonstrated that bioelectrical impeda...
Studies have shown that higher body mass index is associated with improved prognosis in heart failure, and this is often termed the obesity paradox.
Bioelectrical impedance analysis has evolved over the years to include the use of multiple frequencies and impedance measurements to improve the accuracy and reliability of body composition estimates....

Childhood obesity is currently a serious public health challenge in developing countries. Therefore, an accurate assessment of adiposity is required. The objective of this study was to validate BIA pr...
The study is to collect the body composition data using five different methods-bioimpedance analysis (Tanita®), DXA (GE Medical), BodPod (Life Medical), deuterium dilution (heavy water), ...
Bioelectrical impedance analysis is studied as a bedside tool to estimate capillary leak in order to guide dosing of hydrophilic antimicrobials.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the ElectroFluidGraph(tm) (EFG) impedance analyzer is comparable to a predicate device in measuring human body composition.
The study was based on the clinical trial BCA-01 (NCT01368640) "Generation of prediction equations to analyze body composition of adults based on Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)" an...

A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
Recording changes in electrical impedance between electrodes placed on opposite sides of a part of the body, as a measure of volume changes in the path of the current. (Stedman, 25th ed)
The relative amounts of various components in the body, such as percentage of body fat.
