Bioimpedence Interference?

Do you guys think that having 4 titanium “LT Cages” medically implanted in my lower back, along with 3 screws and a rod, would cause interference when conducting my bioimpedence body fat comp. testing? I can visibly see a big reduction in body fat, but my machine isn’t really reflecting it. Herc

I work for a company that manufactures and sells these implants. And they should not effect you body fat percent reading. I will check with you with some of my counter parts that deal more specifically with out spine product line but to my knowledge it should interfere in any way.

Herc, you’ll be a lot happier if you just invest in a pair of calipers. Really.

(And Cravell, I know you’re trying to help, but please proof your posts.)

Thanks Cravell. I am looking forward to hearing back from you. Herc
