Results The BIS system was tested with different test circuits as well as with several experiments on human volunteers. The commercially available BIS System Xitron Hydra 4200 served as a gold standard. As one test circuit, the official Xitron test dummy was used, which is used to periodically check the accuracy of the medical certified BIS system (Xitron Hydra 4200). Its circuit diagram represents the resistive and capacitive component of the skin in the points where the electrodes are placed as well as the Cole-Cole Model for a 70 Kg 175cm person.

These examples point to the necessity of an exact monitoring of nutritional condition and water balance. g. clothing. g. fat content and water content) of the human body. This data enables conclusions about the person’s health condition. So far, dilution methods have been the gold standard for body composition analysis [2]. Nevertheless, they are time consuming and not suitable for a continuous mobile application. In contrast, BIS allows a fast measurement and its implementation in a portable application [2] but has suffered from non-credibility because of its reported limited accuracy when compared with the gold standard.
