Software, Physiologic Analysis, Body Composition
Definition : Physiologic analysis software designed to operate computerized body composition analyzers, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of body composition analyzers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing body composition data, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Physiologic analyzer software is not usually available separate from the analyzer but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the analyzer. Dedicated body composition analysis software is available for several different techniques used for assessment of the body composition, including direct (e.g., neutron activation analysis) or indirect (e.g., densitometry, absorptiometry, electrical conductivity) techniques.
