Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a commonly used method for calculating body composition. This metric is used to assess health and nutrition by measuring body fat, lean muscle mass and hydration levels.
In the long term, excess body fat can be damaging to your health and can actually increase your risks for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more. By using BIA, users can assess their health and make decisions to balance their body fat levels.
Many of us have scales at home, whether we’re working towards our ideal weight and regularly weighing ourselves or we like to check-in on our body weight now and then.
They’re usually found in the bathroom and can be bought relatively cheaply in high-street stores and online.
As the UK begins phase 2 of their lockdown response, temperature screening could become integral to care homes for protecting elderly residents against coronavirus.

Pulse oximeters have become increasingly popular over the past few months because of their use as a coronavirus early detection tool. A number of recovering COVID-19 patients have been given oximeters to keep track of their oxygen levels.
As we launch the Marsden O-100 Fingertip Pulse Oximeter we ask, how important is this clever little device in detecting early signs of coronavirus?
As we’ve discussed in our previous article, temperature screening measures can be a highly effective early detection tool, which can save costs and boost morale within a business. Over the past month, the UK has seen airports, ports and office complexes install this technology.
For many businesses, the expensive temperature screening cameras used by these businesses aren’t feasible. That’s why we’ve introduced the Marsden T-200.
A recent survey by Sport England/Savanta ComRes discovered that British citizens in lockdown were missing the gym more (14%) than they were other leisure activities like swimming (13%) and football (5%).
Furthermore, the survey also reported that 87% of gym-goers plan to rejoin a gym after lockdown, and 27% of non-gym-goers plan to join a gym.
But when will they reopen?
