The FDA has defined body composition analyzer as equipment which estimates and calculates body composition in a limited age range using weight and impedance measurements.
Bioelectric Impedance Analysis
ACCUNIQ uses advanced BIA (Bioelectric Impedance Analysis) technique.

High Correlation with DEXA
As a way to measure body composition, there are various methods such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Water Density Method, etc. However, as dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, DEXA provides more precise body fat analysis based on three components – fats, muscles and bones, and it is safe in terms of the radiation exposure. Hence, DEXA is currently believed to be the gold standard.
ACCUNIQ had conducted clinical validation for accuracy with DEXA in clinical professional body, IHT which is located in Texas, and the results have shown that the accuracy of ACCUNIQ body fat measurement showed a higher correlation to DEXA than competitors.
[BCA Accuracy study at IHT (Integrative Health Technology)]
The closer the correlation coefficient (R2) in the graph is to 1, the higher the agreement between the DEXA body fat mass (LBM) and the body fat mass (LBM) measured by each BCA instrument. The correlation coefficient (R2) of ACCUNIQ was 0.93, which was higher than that of Company A (0.91) and Company B (0.85), which proved its accuracy compared to DEXA, a gold standard of body composition analysis.
|05||Why does my body fat percentage increase when I measure right after a shower?|
Since body fat level using BIA measures the body water first, the measurement could be slightly inaccurate in a condition where the body water is affected. Same issue may occur after an exercise or sauna.
Please follow the recommended measurement instructions for accurate measurement.
|04||Is there any case impossible to measure?|
Anyone with metallic material, medical electronic equipment such as Pace-Maker, defibrillator, stent, metal suture in the heart and great vessel implanted in their bodies are not allowed to use the body composition analyzer as it can cause problems with the device.
|03||How accurate does it measure visceral fat area?|
Abdominal fat measurement methods including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA), Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), and visceral fat area are generally evaluated via CT of L3 ~ L5 position or MRI image. ACCUNIQ has analyzed the correlation of visceral fat area by using CT and cross validation for verification of abdomen assessment.
The results have shown a highly significant correlation coefficient of 0.942.
|02||Is it safe for a pregnant woman to use the device?|
Until now, there have not been any known risks related to the use of BIA device by a pregnant woman. However, it is difficult to proceed with clinical trials targeting pregnant women since there is no relevant research. Thus, we recommend pregnant women to just measure their weight.
In addition, it is difficult to get an accurate measurement due to the various physiological changes which occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy.
|01||What are the advantages of ACCUNIQ’s BIA compared to other devices?|
AACCUNIQ body composition analyzers are simple and convenient systems that completes all measurement processes within a minute. Its accuracy is also proven due to its high correlation to clinical comparison with the median dilution method and DEXA which is known to be the gold standard in body composition analysis.
Furthermore, in conjunction with ACCUNIQ blood pressure monitors, the results can be exported, thus allowing comprehensive health analysis.
