Use of the Bodystat 1500MDD

The Bodystat MDD works the same way as the Bodystat 1500, using 4 electrodes, the subject is lying down, and the measurement results are available within seconds.

The MDD comes with body composition and hydration software for a full analysis of the subjects cellular health, nutrition status and overall fitness and health.

Practitioners or clinicians are therefore able to give accurate assessment of a patient’s health and whether nutritional therapy or a wellness program is working in the correct way.

The MDD gives additional insight into what is happening inside the body, in order for the practitioner to make the correct judgement on therapy, drugs and advice.

It works by passing a safe battery generated signal through the body and measuring the impedance at two frequencies of 5 kHz and 50 kHz. Once the test has been performed the Display Options are shown within five seconds. A complete body composition analysis is displayed comprising Body Fat, Lean Body Mass, Dry Lean Mass, Total Body Water and Optimal Ranges. Metabolic Rates, Waist/Hip Ratio, BMI, BFMI, FFMI, Intra- and Extra-Cellular Water, Phase Angle and a Wellness MarkerTM (Impedance Ratio) are also displayed on the Colour touch screen
