Small contact changes can then have a big influence in the measurements. High skin impedance affects the common mode voltage in the measuring system, which leads to additional errors in the measurement. Fig. 4 Block diagram of the portable BIS System III. HARDWARE REALIZATION AND RESULTS A. Hardware Design The portable BIS system developed during this work has an approximated volume of 20 x 16 x 6 cm and a weight of 700 g. The system can be worn on a belt, is battery-powered and measures the body impedance at 100 frequencies between 5 kHz and 1 MHz.
