How does the test work?
I use a portable machine that does the Bio-impedance analysis test, called the RJL Quantum IV. The whole test takes only a few minutes. Results and analysis takes about another 20 minutes. Please plan for this appointment to take 30 minutes.
When you come in to take the test, I will ask you to take off your right shoe and sock. There is nothing invasive about the test and you won’t feel anything. There’s a massage table in my office and you will lay down on it for the test. Relaxing and getting comfortable is part of the test so as I talk you through how the test works, I may ask you to take a few deep breaths. I will then attach a sticker to your foot, ankle, wrist and forearm.
The test conducts a small electric current, and you will not feel anything during the test. During the test, the electrical current utilizes your body’s hydration status (water) as a medium for gathering information. After a minute or so, the my computer prints out the report.
