Body Composition Analysis

Although there is no direct theoretical relationship between whole body resistance and/or reactance and adiposity, empirical relationships exist to relate total body water and fat free mass (FFM) to impedance, weight, height, gender and age. In effect, lean body impedance is a function of the specific resistivity of the lean tissue, together with its cross-sectional area and its length. When investigating body composition, the EBI100C can be used to perform multi-frequency measurements of different body parts to obtain the segment’s resistive and reactive components using standard tetrapolar electrode placement.

Eye Tracking Glasses ETV

The ETVision (ETV) wearable unit resembles an eyeglasses frame that can be worn by itself or over the participant’s prescription eyeglasses. It contains miniature “eye cameras” that view each eye and a “scene camera” that views the scene in front of the participant, and a microphone. An optional visor can be mounted to the front […]
