The history of bioelectrical impedance analysers can be traced back to 1962, when a French physicist developed the first BIA device to measure biological tissues. Later, in 1786, an Italian physicist tested the influence off electric current on the tissues of frog. Following studies and research, led to the enhancement of BIA device. However, it possessed serious flaws and inaccuracy. In late 1900s, the company launched advanced BIA device leading to rapid adoption of the product. In addition, consecutive advancements of the products, offering high precision and outcomes such as air displacement plethysmography and DEXA led to development of body fat measurement industry growth. Aforementioned advancements coupled with rising obese population and implementation of weight management measures will augment body fat measurement industry growth in the foreseeable future.
