Dear Fran
Thank you for your kind words. I presume that with Bio-electrical Impediment Analysis, you are referring to Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis where an individual is connected to an instrument which measures electrical impedance and then calculates body fat percentage? These instruments have been around since the 1980s and are popular in gyms, etc. A number of factors can lead to error readings, so that this type of measurement cannot be regarded as a 'gold standard' method of determining body fatness.
I hope this helps
Best regards
