Impedimed SFB7
Description: This is a whole body multifrequency bioimpedance spectroscopy device that is FDA approved for measurements of body composition in healthy individuals. The device provides measurements of total body water, extracellular water, intracellular water, fat mass, fat-free mass, and body mass index based on input measurements of height, weight, age, and sex. Leads are placed on the ipsilateral hand, foot, ankle, and wrist with measurements available within seconds
Device: $100/day
Supplies: $5 per lead
Device: $200/day
Supplies: $10 per lead
Cheetah Non-Invasive Cardiac Output Monitor (NICOM)
Description: This device utilizes impedance cardiography to obtain measurements of cardiac output (and index) and mean arterial pressure so that peripheral vascular resistance (and index) can be measured. The device simultaneously measures stroke volume (and index), heart rate, stroke volume variation, and thoracic fluid content. Leads are placed on shoulders and trunk while brachial artery cuff is placed. All measurements are available after a 3- to 5-minute calibration period.
Device: $100/day
Supplies: $150 per lead
Device: S200/day
Supplies: $150 per lead
