The development of the innovative body composition analyzer to the current level is a reward

Innovative body composition analyzer
Beginning in 1996: Janex conducted clinical trials using the isotope dilution method known as the gold standard for accuracy, and developed a most accurate body composition analysis formula using clinical data and the five factors put forward in SCI-level papers
Verification: We use the isotope dilution method, DEXA and MRI methods to improve the accuracy and repeatability of the product through objective and scientific proof.
In particular, we performed cross-validation through isotope dilution method and CT scan, respectively, to prove the accuracy of the analysis of body composition and visceral fat.
Core technology: From the beginning of product development, Janex MEDIcal has adopted the five-factor method (age, gender, weight, height and impedance) and the 4-pole 8-point contact electrode method.
Ease of use: Janex MEDIcal always tries to make its products easier to operate.
Body composition analyzer technology
Since its development in 1996, Janex Medical Co., Ltd. has used the five-factor method to calculate body composition.
It is a reward to see the technology develop to the current level.

01. Five-factor bioelectrical impedance analysis technology
JANEX has been using five-factor bioelectrical impedance analysis technology in measuring human body composition since 1996.
What is bioelectrical impedance? (BIA)
In the BIA method, different electrical conductivity will be produced according to the biological characteristics of human tissue, but it has the following limitations.
Restrictions of the BIA Law:
Based on height and weight, the human body is represented as a simple cylinder. It assumes that body composition is the same and evenly distributed. This does not take into account individual differences and changes in body composition. It ignores any changes in environment (temperature), body temperature, and stress.
However, in reality, according to the above-mentioned assumptions, the human body is different.
In order for the BIA method to accurately analyze the actual condition of the human body, five major factors must be taken into consideration.

02. 8-point contact
JANEX uses 8-point contact electrode method to achieve high accuracy in the process of body composition analysis.
The 8-point contact electrode method uses independent electrodes: a current electrode that sends current to the human body and a voltage electrode that detects impedance.
It minimizes resistance contact and improves accuracy.
In addition, it uses a method of fixing the position of the foot electrodes (ankle electrodes) and the hand electrodes, which can reduce measurement errors and improve the repeatability of the results.
