Evaluation of body composition is an essential process in order to determine the risks associated with high or low levels of body fat.  Therefore, to analyze the body, a tool called body fat analyzer is used. This analyzer accurately assess the body fat and identify risk associated with health due to high or low amounts of body fat. Moreover, this device also helps to assess the effectiveness of exercise and nutrition intake according to the age. The body fat measuring device is applied to the skin and a weak current is passed between the outer two electrodes. As this high frequency current passes through the skin, the muscles and the subcutaneous fat, some amount of energy is lost due to the tissue resistance. This change in the energy is then measured with the help of two inner electrodes which help to determine the fat in the body.

Market Outlook: Global Body Fat Measurement Market

Nowadays, the evaluation of body composition has become an essential process. Increasing awareness about body weight, metabolism, and health/fitness training is anticipated to drive the market for body fat measurement. With an increasing number of people taking up sports, athletics, and body training activities, a rising number of health clubs and gym facilities is acquiring body fat measurement equipment. Deployment of these devices and equipment in the body training and healthcare sector is likely to witness an upsurge over the coming years.
