The medical devices developed by ImpediMed utilize bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) technology. BIS involves applying a very mild electrical current at 256 different frequencies to the body. As the current travels through the body it is resisted by the body. Using sophisticated electronics, the level of impedance, or resistance, of a patient’s body to the current can be measured and converted into clinically useful measurements such as a patient’s fat mass, fat free mass and fluid levels.
