Body composition predictions from bioelectric impedance.
In this study, we propose a 3D-printed sensor that can monitor multiple types of bioelectric signals, which is cost-effective and time-efficient in fabrication.
As part of nutritional assessment it is possible to mention the determination of body mass index (BMI), measurement of body circumferences and skinfolds and the determination of fat mass and fat-free mass by the technique of electric bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA).
Claiming to be "the world's first cyborg-type robot," HAL reads bioelectric signals sent to muscles that leak out to the skin.
Bioelectric techniques have been proposed as low cost and less invasive indirect methods for assessing more precisely body composition in experimental animals (Angeloco et al., 2012; Hall, Lukaski, & Marchello, 1989; Rutter, Hennoste, Ward, Cornish, & Thomas, 1998), as well as several indices, which, in this case, are called murinometric (from Latin murinae--rodent and Greek metri--measure).
Bioelectric impedance phase angle and body composition.
He said that medical robots, nanorobots, bioelectric and bioelectromagnetics in diagnosis and treatment, the tissue and stemcells engineering, medical laboratory's smart equipment, digital and nuclear medicine are the topics of the Congress.
Traditional bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) involves predictive equations and new approaches, such as bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) and phase angle (PA) (7) studies, which can be useful tools for evaluating a patient's secondary nutritional status.
