8-Point Tactile Electrode System

When measuring impedance with electrodes, contact resistance occurs. InBody accounts for contact resistance with strategically placed electrodes to ensure that measurements are accurate and reproducible.

Other BIA Devices

Many BIA devices lack a thumb electrode or have hand electrodes positioned close together. These designs can cause measurements to start in the palm, which has a high impedance and can cause inaccuracies or lead to inconsistent measurement starting points, reducing the reliability of results.

InBody Devices

The anatomical design of the InBody hand electrode creates a simple holding position that is easy to reproduce. When an examinee grasps the handle, current flows from the palm electrode, and the electrical energy, or voltage, is initiated at the thumb electrode. The point of measurement remains consistent for highly reproducible results.
