Body Fluids Monitor (MSC-22491)
The body fluids monitor uses bioelectrical responses to determine amounts of body fluids. By employing a sequence of measurements and processing steps, the device can calculate the total volume of body water, the volume of extra-cellular water, the total blood volume,and the total plasma volume in a subject. The accuracy of this method is greater than with that of previous methods. Potential products include tools to measure body mass and fat (e.g., for use in medical clinics and exercise clubs), pre-and post-surgery body fluids, blood loss during surgery and bone mineral content (e.g., for tracking osteoporosis). NASA has developed prototypes that have been evaluated.
