Akern - BIA 101 Anniversary


Established in 1980, Akern is one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of bio-impedance instruments for clinical and professional use. Over 30 years of experience in body composition analysis, more than 30,000 sold BIA devices, and state of the art technology laid the impressive foundation for all current Akern BIA products. Thousands physicians are relying on Akern Systems instrumentation. Their success has proved to be the right choice.

BIA 101 Anniversary

The most advanced development within the Akern family of Bio-impedance Analyzers, the BIA 101 Anniversary features the unique combination of whole body and segmental analysis including a bilateral, side-by-side comparison of extremities.

Introduced at the 25th anniversary of its legendary predecessor, the Akern BIA 101, the BIA 101 Anniversary impresses with top accuracy and resolution, best suited for clinical and scientific applications. In addition to classical whole body composition analysis, BIA 101 Anniversary offers a segmental determination of body compartments and a side-by-side comparison of the extremities allowing objective therapy control and training guidance (fostering of bilateral muscle growth, avoidance of asymmetrical development).

Incorporating the most modern electronic design based on more than 30 years of experience in BIA technology, BIA 101 Anniversary offers an unprecedented accuracy in BIA analysis. The integration of signal processing provides an immediate display of BIA results, in addition to PC based evaluation.

BIA 101 Anniversary is accompanied by a complete program package, BodyGram PRO software for whole body analysis and BIASCAN® PRO software for segmental analysis.

Especially appreciated in acute care medicine, the instrument also allows an instantaneous assessment of the clinical most relevant BIA parameters by ‘Soft Tissue Analysis’ without entry of any data, directly read off the integrated instrument display, without the need of a PC.
