The increasingly unfavorable ratio of active to inactive population has led to a prevalence of overweight and obesity, bringing nutrition to play a pivotal social role.
Nutritional status classification is one of the biggest challenges for nutritionists and is crucially important for optimum safe management of the patient/athlete within a personalized healthcare pathway.
Thanks to the bioimpedance analysis, there is a validated and Evidence-Based method for evaluating body composition in nutritional settings.
Through the response of the organism to an externally applied electric current it measures the proportion of lean muscle mass, fat mass and total water component. Its application supports weight loss plans, body transformations pre-post events such as pregnancy/delivery, major injuries, pathologies, etc. Moreover, professional sports teams and elite athletes already use this method of analysis to optimize their training programs and improve performance.
Measurement of bioimpedance has proved useful as a non-invasive method for measuring body composition; it is a precise, safe and scientifically validated tool with countless publications in international scientific journals.
The Sports Rehab team accounts a Physician & Nutritionist specialized with a Master Degree in Clinic Nutrition and Dietology that uses bioimpedance analysis to provide patients or athletes with the best Evidence-Based tool to measure the baseline condition before developing a specialized and tailored nutritional and/or supplementation program.
