Marsden MBF-7000 Advanced Body Composition Analyser 

The MBF-7000 is Marsden's most sophisticated body composition scale. It provides a comprehensive analysis of health and fitness, allowing you to accurately and effectively monitor your progress over time. All body composition measurements are provided via Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) and Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis (BIVA).

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is a technique used to estimate body composition. A weak electric current is passed through the body, and the speed at which the current flows through the body determines the amount of fat, water and muscle content.

Advanced body composition analysers like the MBF-7000 use BIA to provide a full breakdown of body composition. Traditional BIA body composition scales will use one frequency; the MBF-7000 uses three. This allows a wider range of more accurate measurements.

For example, low frequencies have difficulty overcoming and passing through cell membranes, so are well suited for measuring extracellular water. High frequencies can pass through cell membrane walls, so they can provide intracellular readings.

In medical settings, quick, accurate, and cost-effective evaluation of a patient’s hydration status is a critical part of diagnostics and treatment. Conventional BIA uses regression equations to produce estimates of Total Body Water, Extra- and Intracellular Water. However, because equations are formulated based on “normal” healthy populations and rely upon assumptions about standard hydration level, the accuracy of these estimates may vary based on the disparity between the subject and comparison population. This is where Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis (BIVA) comes in.

BIVA assesses fluid status and body cell mass through Resistance (R) and Reactance (Xc). Assuming that resistance correlates with body fluid, and reactance correlates with body cell mass, R and Xc are normalised for height and compared with the reference population. Because R and Xc – unlike body composition estimates – are directly determined by body fluid volume, BIVA can be used as an accurate assessment tool by subjects with abnormal hydration levels, who might not be able to rely upon conventional BIA results.

Additional Info:

This scale provides even more readings than our MBF-6000, including Intracellular Water (ICW), Extracellular Water (ECW), Total Body Water (TBW), Soft Lean Mass (SLM), Fat-Free Mass (FFM), Body Fat Mass (BFM), Skeletal Muscle Mass (SMM), Percentage Body Fat (PBF), Body Mass Index (BMI), Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), Total Energy Expenditure (TEE), Phase Angle, Fat-free Mass Index (FFMI), Skeletal Muscle Index (SMI) and Impedance.

Another benefit is that the scale also gives recommended improvements for each client, based on their results.
