Title: Apparatus for analyzing body composition using novel hand electrodes and method thereof

Abstract: The present invention relates to an apparatus and a method for analyzing body composition using a hand electrode apparatus for improving the precision in measuring the upper body impedance by passing a weak, alternating current across the body through the current electrodes and reading the voltage difference. The voltage electrodes are located outside the current pathway to give a more accurate measurement of body impedance.
