bioelectrical impedance

Abbreviation: BIA
Resistance to electrical current as it travels through body fluids and tissues. Its measurement is used in body composition analysis to determine total water, lean mass, and other body components. The results may vary with ambient temperature and humidity, the subject's hydration, and other variables. See: body composition; body fat; fluid, body; lean body mass
