The bioelectrical impedance (BI) for the young and the elderly was measured using bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy (BIS). First, while applying a current of to the foot and hand, BI was measured at 50 frequencies ranging from 5 to 1000 kHz. The BI for young subjects was considerably lower than that for old subjects since young subjects have more lean mass (hydration). The prediction marker was 0.74 for young subjects and 0.78 for old subjects. Second, a Cole-Cole diagram was obtained for young subjects and old subjects, indicating the different characteristic frequencies. At 50 kHz, the average phase angle was for young subjects whereas that was for old subjects. Third, BIVA was analyzed for young subjects and old subjects. The vector length was 210.89 [] for young subjects and 326.12 [] for old subjects. At 50 kHz, the resistance (R/H) and the reactance () divided by height were 208.94 [] and 28.68 [] for young subject, and 324.33 [] and 34.09 [] for old subjects.
