Since 1990, Bodystat® has specialised in bio-impedance technology, spectroscopy and Cole Modelling. Bodystat® is dedicated to researching bioelectrical impedance technology to provide the innovative electronics that accurately measure body composition and hydration within the human body, non-invasively.
Bodystat’s single, dual and multi-frequency non-invasive devices offer a quick, easy and reliable method of measuring body composition, hydration and nutritional status and cellular health. The Bodystat® range of products includes measurements at critical frequencies to determine intra- and extra-cellular fluid levels, Body Cell Mass and more.
Bodystat® has recently launched their latest generation MultiScan 5000 spectroscopy device. The MultiScan 5000 uses the latest in Cole Modelling to display the volume of over-hydration. The Multiscan 5000 measures the Volume of Fluid Overload, as well as showing Body Composition, Hydration and BIVA Vector graph immediately on the colour touch screen. Raw data, Resistance, Reactance and Phase Angle are calculated at 50 frequencies up to 1000 kHz to help assess Dry Weight and to help assess nutritional status pre and post dialysis.
The MultiScan includes many new features such as elimination of stray capacitance ensuring precise accurate and reproducible measurements, precise Impedance and Phase Angle values at multiple frequencies, new low capacitance leadwires, remote access for updates and system diagnosis and wireless charging providing convenience and safety.
The MultiScan 5000 also displays the Phase Angle and Prediction MarkerTM which is directly measured without the need for weight, gender, age and population group.
Phase Angle is an excellent indicator of cell membrane health based on the distribution of water inside and outside of the cells. Tracking the changes in Phase Angle is an effective indicator for monitoring the change in health and muscle mass since Phase Angle measures at the cellular level. Low Phase Angle is associated with malnutrition and nutrition risk.
The Prediction MarkerTM is the ratio between Extracellular Water and Total Body Water. The Prediction MarkerTM measures the movement of fluids in and out of the cells based on the Impedance ratio. The Prediction MarkerTM uses the latest in Cole Modelling providing accurate tissue model parameters and allowing for the tracking of changes in ECW/TBW which is crucial for dialysis patients. The Prediction MarkerTM is particularly useful in Critical Care and ICU settings were fluids needs to be measured constantly.
The MultiScan can be used in a number of clinical settings such Renal Dialysis, Kidney Disease, Covid including Long Covid, Cachexia, Sarcopenia, Lymphoedema and Critical Care.

Dustri-Verlag Dr. Karl Feistle / Clinical Nephrology
Dustri-Verlag was founded in the late 40s of the last century. In 1965, the founder Karl Müller, a printer from Remscheid, Germany, sold Dustri-Verlag to Dr. Karl Feistle, an ambitious young publisher. In 1999, Dustri-Verlag was taken over by Karl’s sons Frank and Joerg Feistle, who have further expanded their father’s success. In 2003, the American office of Dustri-Verlag was founded in Rockledge, FL, in order to improve contacts to its authors and readers.
For the past 50 years, Dustri-Verlag has been specializing in medical literature. The publisher’s oldest periodical was the Medical Literature Adviser (MLA), offering information on the latest medical books to booksellers. The publication of medical books, such as Facies dolorosa by Hans Kilian a famous German surgeon, also started soon. First published in 1971, Nieren- und Hochdruckkrankheiten (Renal and Hypertensive Diseases, founding editor R. Kluthe) was Dustri-\Verlag’s first journal. In 1973, the first English language journal followed: Clinical Nephrology (founding editor R. Kluthe), soon well known as the “green journal”, was one of the first in its field. Since 1975, six new German-language journals have been added to the program: Allergologie (Allergy), Atemwegs- und Lungenkrankenheiten (Airway and Lung Diseases), Intensiv- und Notfallbehandlung (Critical Care), Verdauungskrankeiten (Gastroenterology), Prävention und Rehabilitation (Prevention and Rehabilitation), and Dermatologie in Beruf und Umwelt (Occupational and Environmental Dermatology). In addition to Clinical Nephrology, Dustri-Verlag also publishes three other international English-language journals: Clinical Neuropathology, International Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and Trace Elements and Electrolytes.
A book program was launched in the 1970s, when the first yellow pocket books were published. Today, Dustri-Verlag has a broad spectrum of books for many special fields of medicine – from large standard works to highly specialized textbooks and useful patient guides.
Since 1990, Dustri-Verlag has been typesetting in its own studio. This has speeded up production and opened new technical possibilities. Dustri-Verlag has also tackled the challenges of digital revolution. All journal contents as well as the most important book contents are offered online in electronic form.
