Bioimpedance is the common method used by household scales to calculate body composition. iHealth Core uses the bioimpedance method by using 4 conductors to determine the hindrance of electrical flow through the body and uses that to calculate the total body water. From the total body water, it can estimate the 9 data points. As a bonus, we have a separate sensor for indoor temperature and humidity, so you can adjust your thermostat to keep your body in optimal condition.No matter whether we are young or old, our health should still be the first priority. Knowing your weight and body composition gives you the opportunity to make better decisions regarding your lifestyle habits. Your body won’t always tell you directly what it needs, but iHealth Core can be the messenger.
