Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a method of measuring body fat percent by sending a low-level, safe, electrical current through the body. The current travels at a different rate through the various body tissues, which then allows a calculation of fat mass and fat-free mass. This feature is common in many of today's at-home digital scales.
