Product Spotlight - The Bodystat Touch
The Bodystat 1500 Touch is the latest Bodystat model with touch screen functionality, measuring body composition & hydration. This pocket-sized device gives accurate statistics for body fat, lean muscle mass, dry lean and hydration.
The unit is a lightweight, hand-held, battery operated Bioimpedance Analyser which is easy to use and requires no specialist skills. It is a non-invasive device, which measures the impedance value of the body providing quick and effective analysis of body composition. Whole Body analysis, rather than partial body analysis of arms or legs only, is measured for greater accuracy.
How does it work ?
It works by passing a safe battery generated signal through the body and measuring the bioelectrical impedance at a fixed frequency of 50 kHz. Once the test has been performed a complete body composition analysis is displayed on the LCD screen within three seconds comprising Body Fat, Lean Body Mass, Total Body Water and optimal ranges. Metabolic rates, BMI and Waist/Hip Ratio are also displayed on the LCD screen. large colour, straightforward to read and use, fast responsive touch screen.

- Waist/Hip Ratio
- Impedance Values at 50kHz
What is BIA Technology ?
BIA, or Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, is a non-invasive measurement of body fat, lean muscle mass and hydration.
A small current is used to measure the resistance at difference frequencies against the various tissues in the body eg fat/lipid has a high resistance to the flow of current, therefore shows a high impedance reading. Lean muscle and water are good conductors of current, therefore will show low resistance or impedance readings.

Using the Bodystat Touch
Four electrodes are placed in specific locations on the hand and foot. The patient is ideally lying down for a couple of minutes to stabilise fluids. Attach the leads to each electrode, input data such as age, weight, height and gender into the hardware device (touch screen). The measurement takes one second and all results are immediately visible on a colour touch screen ready to print or to view in an App.
The device can connect via blue tooth to our new Thermal Printer. It gives immediate printouts of the subjects analysis allowing you to talk through and explain their results with them at time of measurement. It also gives them something to study ahead of you emailing them your assessment and attaching the professional Bodystat reports. Click here for more info
