Nutritional Care

Portable body composition analyser

Portable body composition analyser. It is estimated that malnutrition costs the UK more then ?1.5bn per year. Malnutrition occurs in people that are either under-nourished or over-nourished. There is an increased risk of malnutrition associated with chronic diseases, especially disease of the intestinal tract, kidneys and liver. Patients with chronic diseases such as cancer, AIDS and intestinal disorders may lose weight rapidly and become susceptible to undernourishment because they cannot absorb valuable vitamins, calories and iron. Malnourished patients, if not identified and treated early, can take longer to recovery, and wound infections and other complications are more likely requiring greater resources. BioScan 916 is a low-cost, non-invasive instrument used to assess body composition, nutritional status, body fluid and metabolic rate. The instrument makes use of the bio-electrical impedance (BIA) principle to provide detailed analysis of over 45 different parameters. Detailed reports help explain the various test results and the significance to the patient's health, allowing progress to be tracked. Portable body composition analyser
