BIODY XPERT weight meter
The impedance meter
essential for Sports and Wellness Professionals
The impedance meter is a device used to measure the body composition of a person by analyzing the electrical resistance (impedance) of different tissues of the body. This method is also called bioimpedance or bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA).
In the sports and medical context, the impedance meter is used to evaluate body composition.
This information is valuable for optimizing and monitoring a person’s health status, evaluating the effectiveness of a training or rehabilitation program, and determining potential health risks related to body composition.
In your professional practice, the impedance meter is a valuable and indispensable tool. It allows you to quickly assess fitness levels and guide your clients’ training or treatment programs towards excellence and performance.

Impedance meter : how does it work ?
Using an impedance meter to measure body composition usually involves the following steps:
- The person stands, sits or lies on an examination table. On the back of his foot, we apply the eBiody inpedance meter which is equipped with electrodes.
- A weak electric current (safe and painless) is sent through the body.
- The eBiody measures the resistance (or impedance) of different tissues to electrical currents.
- The eBiody uses specific algorithms and equations to calculate the components of body composition from impedance measurements and other data (such as the person’s age, gender, height and weight).
It is useful to note that impedance meters do not provide direct measurements of body composition, but rather estimates based on models and equations. Results can be affected by a variety of factors, such as hydration, body temperature, recent food consumption and body position. Therefore, it is crucial to follow proper protocols to ensure accurate and reliable measurements. This valuable information is delivered to you in detail during some of our EMSPRO training sessions .
IN THE SERVICE OF WHAT?
Our connected devices meet the ever-increasing need to maintain good health and well-being on a daily basis. Thanks to their ease of use and mobility, they allow health professionals to better accompany their clients/patients towards a personalized healthy lifestyle, and also promote prevention and health cost reduction.
The eBIODY professional impedance meters are used in the following 3 areas of activity:
Bioimpedancemetry (BIA) has been used to determine body composition since the 1970s.
It consists in passing through the body an alternating electric current of low intensity and measuring the opposition of the tissues to the passage of this current. The value of impedances, phase angles, resistances and reactances collected by the measuring device allow, thanks to algorithms, to determine the body compartments crossed by the current and to provide, according to the type of device, a more or less precise and detailed result of the body composition. The current used is very low. It is completely painless.
