Body Composition Analysis of Staff members of College Using Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis Method

Swaroopa Rani N. Gupta
Abstract—Aims: In this analysis of body composition such as body weight, BMI, body fat percentage, segmental subcutaneous fat & skeletal muscle percentage (whole body, trunk, legs and arms), resting metabolism, visceral fat level and body age is done by bioelectrical impedance technique and results are interpreted and corresponding instructions for better health improvement is given.
   Methods: Body composition analysis of teaching and nonteaching staff members of Brijlal Biyani Science College Amravati Maharashtra India using bioelectrical impedance analysis method is done. For ideal weight management and for a more accurate and precise body composition analysis full body sensing technology karada scan body composition monitor – HBF-375 is used. The general principle behind bioelectrical impedance analysis is that two or more conductors are attached to a person's body and a small electric current is sent through the body. The resistance between the conductors provides a measure of body fat between a pair of electrodes, since the resistance to electricity varies between adipose, muscular and skeletal tissue.
   Result: Interpretation of body composition analysis report of Teaching Staff members (Senior College) shows that overweight person is 70.6 %; that of Junior College is 73.3 %; that of non-teaching staff members (laboratory) is 52.4 % while; that of office is 76.9 %; and that of library is 100 %.

Index Terms—Body age, body fat, BMI, RM, skeletal muscle, subcutaneous fat, visceral fat.
