Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is used to calculate the body fat percentage of a human by applying a small amount of alternating current through a human body and measuring the impedance. As the electrode size of a BIA device becomes small, the measurement error of impedance becomes large due to the contact resistance between the electrode and human skin. Most commercial BIA devices, therefore, utilize electrodes large enough to ignore the effect of contact resistance, eg 35× 40 mm 2× 4EA. We propose a …
