Bioimpedance analysis and water in the human body

Curated by Gerolamo Cavalli and Gabriele Gualandris It does not seem to interest anyone, or at least a few; we are mainly interested in body fat, to the limit of lean mass ... And water? This lack of interest is curious, given that we are made of water for 65% of our weight. An adult man of about 70Kg should have about 45 liters in his body, it seems strange but it is really so

Values ​​of BIA (Bioimpedance) - How to interpret them

Bioimpedance or BIA BIA (or rather BIA) is the acronym of the English term Body Impedence Assessment , which in Italian can be translated into bioimpedance geometry . BIA is one of the fastest and most precise techniques for measuring and evaluating body composition (CC); its operation is indirect (like plicometry) and is based on the measurement of IMPEDANCE (Z) offered by the human body to the passage of an alternating electric current at a fixed frequency, by virtue of the fact that the organism's conduction capacity is directly proportional to the amount of water and electrolytes it con

Constitutional biotypes, morphotypes or somathi, practical applications

Biotypology is a branch of medicine that deals with the classification and study of types of body constitution, also examining the relationships between certain morphological and functional characteristics and pathological states. Some constitutional types, in fact, are more prone to certain pathologies than others to biotypes; this aspect, although of medical interest, in the context of personal training is still useful to provide further clues and feedback, useful above all if the person is already suffering from some pathology and / or if he / she has been referred to the gym by his / her ow

Knee height

The height of a subject can be heavily influenced by dysmorphisms of the spine (kyphoscoliosis) and bone diseases such as osteoporosis and rickets. Not surprisingly, from the age of 30, stature tends to decrease with aging, by about: 0.03 cm / year up to 45 years; 0.28 cm / year over 45 years. To eliminate the influence of these factors and obtain a real estimate of the height of the subject, important to proceed with the due anthropometric evaluations, the so-called knee height is used
