Product Overview:

The Quantum V Segmental BIA provides quantitative regional body composition assessments that are similar to those produced by Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) scanners. This is performed by using eight hand and foot electrodes (left and right side) with the subject in a supine position and measuring 13 resistance and reactance regions on the human body. The comparative characteristics of segmental body composition assessments are highly significant, as segmental muscle atrophy and hypertrophy can be clearly illustrated by analyzing and comparing collected data as a comparative percentage or change over time.

Health care professionals such as physicians who are interested in regional muscle wasting will find the Quantum V Segmental BIA a valuable tool. In addition, physical therapists, sport medicine trainers and nutritionists can monitor and track their patients progress and health improvements on specific regions of the body.

The Quantum V Segmental BIA uses an eight lead 12-channel multiplexer to quickly measure resistance and reactance values from each arm, leg and right and left torso, including the upper and lower regions of the human body in less than 20 seconds. The repeatability and accuracy of the resistance and reactance measurements allow the smallest changes to be recorded with 0.1 ohms of resolution.

A unique and patented feature of the RJL Systems segmental BIA instrument is that the sum of the lean soft tissue (LST) or fat mass is equal to the whole body LST or fat assessment. This is similar to the sum of the DEXA measurements that approximates to body weight.

  • Mexican Adults ( Male & Female )
  • Native Americans
  • Obese ( BMI > 30 )
  • African American ( Obese )
  • Athletic
  • HIV
  • BIA-103 ( Provided for historical purposes only )
  • All Body Types (BMI adjustable)
