The BioScan 920-2 Multi-frequency Analyser with its unique features is a rapid, non-invasive, inexpensive method for evaluating hydration and nutrition status. The use of Maltron Analysers as excellent estimators continues to increase in the global field of Medical Science.
The advanced circuitry and processing power of the BioScan 920-2 allows it to measure Extracellular (ECF) and Intracellular Fluid (ICF) volume without the need for complex clinical techniques like radioisotope dilution. In addition to estimating the standard parameters, this advanced system is the world’s first to provide an estimation of mineral content.
All data is recorded and displayed immediately for analysis by the system. Results can be viewed on the large graphic LCD display or downloaded via PC to the software for analysis.
Maltron’s state of the art circuitry allows you to monitor fluid changes and shift in whole body, thorax, trunk, legs and arms.
At various frequencies biological tissues act as conductors or insulators and current applied will follow a path of least resistance. This is because Fat Free Mass (FFM) which contains large amounts of water (73%) and electrolytes are good conductors of electrical current than Fat Mass (FM). Current passes through Extra Cellular fluid at low frequencies and at higher it penetrates cell membranes passing through both Intracellular and Extracellular fluid. Fat Mass contains very little water and is a poor conductor of electrical current.
Water, the most abundant element of the body, accounts for almost 50-60% of an adults body weight. The total body water is divided into Intracellular Fluid (ICF) and Extracellular Fluid (ECF). Intracellular fluid is found within the cell mass of the body and Extracellular is outside the cells. The makeup of the ECF includes interstitial fluid, blood plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, intraocular fluid and gastrointestinal fluid.
ICF and ECF compartments in a healthy individual are highly regulated. In disease conditions, excess fluid accumulation occurs in the Extracellular spaces.
The parameters measured by the BioScan 920-2 provide an assessment of clinical and nutritional status helping detect abnormal conditions.
