Water Content Measurement (TBW) and Adiposity

Electrobioimpedance Impedance Cardiography ICG Amplifier

Water Content Measurement and Adiposity is an area of active research and so specific methods of performing total body water (TBW) measurements using BIA may change. The following formula is sometimes used:

TBW = A * (H**2/R) + C

Where:

A = a proportionality constant specific for a given subject population
H = subject’s height
R = resistance obtained by single-frequency BIA (usually 50 kHz)
C = a constant

It may also be possible to obtain additional specificity in TBW measurements by performing BIA at multiple frequencies.

ECG Electrocardiogram Amplifier for MRI

The ECG100C-MRI Electrocardiogram Amplifier records electrical activity generated by the heart and will reliably record ECG from humans, animals and isolated organ preparations. The amplifier output can be switched between normal ECG output and R-wave detection. The R-wave mode outputs a smoothed pulse with the occurrence of each R-wave. The exact timing of the R-wave […]
