Evolt 360 Body Scan Accuracy: We know there is a minefield of information out there on the “best body scanner” in the market. There are a lot of promises and quoted stats that make your decision all the more confusing.
Investing in a BIA body composition product is an integral part of your business so it’s important to understand the science behind the BIA technology & the methodology used by the product.
So, what is Bioelectrical Impedance (BIA)? BIA Technology is a scientifically validated body composition test used within the field of research and medicine. It works by passing a safe, low intensity electrical current through the body via the tactical points on the machine (feet and hands). In very basic terms, the measurement of impedance and reactance determines the difference between muscle mass, fat mass (including visceral and subcutaneous), water and mineral.
A lot of body scanner manufacturers claim that they are the most accurate, but how can you really tell which is the best body composition scanner for your business and customers? Here are a few facts to consider when researching which body scanner is best for you.
BIA, which uses a safe alternating current that passes through the body is identical regardless of the manufacturer.
However, the algorithms used by different companies are where the variability exists and where the value of the Evolt 360 body scanner comes to the forefront.
CRITICAL QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN ENQUIRING ABOUT ANY BODY COMPOSITION SCANNER.
WHAT CRITERIA IS THE BODY SCANNER’S ALGORITHM BASED ON?
The Evolt 360 data analysis methodology, incorporates a 5-point algorithm which has been developed based on 100% evidence-based data that being –
This range of criteria means that the Evolt 360 uses the validated formula to provide a reliable, repeatable reading of body composition.
HOW DOES AN INDIVIDUAL’S AGE AND GENDER IMPACT THE RELIABILITY OF THE RESULTS?
Logically, there is a significant difference between the body composition makeup between men and women, likewise, age also has a significant impact upon the body composition makeup of the human body. This is why it’s important that the algorithms cater to an individual’s metrics rather than one set of criteria that caters to all ages and genders.
HOW ACCURATE IS BIA TECHNOLOGY?
The accuracy of the Evolt 360 data analysis methodology that incorporates a 5-point algorithm has been developed based 100% on evidence-based data presented in the research.
Some of our competitors, use a 3-point algorithm that ignores age and gender (with default male and age settings that override what the individual enters into the system) which have repeatedly been substantiated in the literature as key components to the accurate determination of body composition in all demographics.
