Product Overview – The Quantum II is an ideal choice for users who desire a body composition analyzer that is compact and portable. The combined key features of the Quantum II and the accompanying BC software provide an easy-to-use, accurate and affordable instrument for revealing and monitoring changes in the composition of the human body.
BC Software – After testing with the Quantum II Analyzer, the measurements are entered into the BC software which performs the body composition analysis. The end results can provide guidance for an individual to improve their body composition using the diet and exercise wizard in BC.
Healthcare Professionals – Many professionals in the health, fitness and nutrition fields use our instruments because scale weight alone does not provide enough information to manage an overall health plan for individuals. With the Quantum II, they have the ability to know when fat, fat-free mass and fluids are lost or gained, when working with patients and clients to improve body composition in relation to health and fitness management.
Institutional Researchers – The Quantum II provides bioelectrical resistance and reactance measurements, which can include equation choices for a variety of populations. Extremely small changes in body composition can be illustrated due to the instrument’s exceptional accuracy and repeatability. The results of testing with the Quantum II Instrument can provide the user with a method to monitor and historically track body composition changes.
How will I know if my RJL analyzer is operating correctly (calibrated)?
A 500-ohm resistor is included with all the RJL analyzers. This resistor allows you to check the calibration of the analyzer. For an explanation on how to test the calibration of your unit, please refer to the manual.
Is there any chance of electrical shock while operating the RJL analyzers?
No, all of the RJL analyzers are designed with isolation transformers that prevent any harmful current from being exposed to the subject while being tested.
Will climate affect the BIA test?
Yes, but only when climate changes are extreme.
Is the RJL equipment FDA approved?
The Food and Drug Administration regulates all BIA devices as class II medical devices. Manufacturers must receive clearance from the FDA to market a class II device. Please visit the FDA website for more information on RJL registration and clearances. ( FDA Website – search for RJL Systems under Applicant Name or Owner Name.)
What is the life expectancy of an RJL analyzer?
So long as you take care of your analyzer, it can last a long time. RJL has many of their customers (from as far back as 1980) using their originally purchased analyzers.
Are the RJL analyzers very difficult to operate?
No, anyone can operate the RJL analyzers. It is helpful, however, to read the supplied manuals first.
In addition, anyone planning on using an analyzer in a clinical setting should practice applying the electrodes and collecting the resistance and reactance values to ensure that they are able to reliably and repeatably place the electrodes in the same spots on the skin every time.
How do I know when the Quantum-II or Quantum-X needs a new battery?
A line of decimal points will appear at the bottom of the LCD screen.
What is the difference between the Quantum II analyzer and the Quantum X?
The difference between the two units is the resolution. The Quantum II has a resolution to 1.0 Ohms and the Quantum X has a resolution to 0.1 Ohms., or ten times that of the Quantum II.
Both the Quantum II and the Quantum X are hand held analyzers that weigh 11 oz., and run on a 9-volt battery (ONLY).
Neither system stores data nor do they have serial communication capability.
All RJL BIA instruments test with equally accurate resistance and reactance results, and all RJL BIA results can be entered into our current software for body composition analysis.
