If you are looking for a little help and assistance to keep your body in top physical shape, or just to start a new fitness regime and nutrition plan. You may be interested in a new portable health companion called the Fitrus Plus. Designed to provide a pocket sized system that can accurately measure your body’s composition.
Using its companion smartphone application to provide customised exercise and nutrition plans specifically tailored to your body’s composition. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Fitrus Plus fitness system which has been designed by Douglass Lee based in Chicago.
Fitrus Plus uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to measure your body’s composition, in particular body fat. “BIA is a method in determining body fat compositions by measuring how easily a tiny electric current flows through your body tissues, or to be more precise, the opposition, or “impedance” to the flow. The current flows through hydrated tissue with less impedance than tissue that does not hold much water. Muscles holds about 75% water while fat is the least hydrated tissue in our body with about 10%; even bones hold more water than fat tissue. This is then used to estimate fat-free body mass which is then subtracted from body weight to derive one’s body fat. So, weight minus fat-free body mass = body fat.”
