Bio-impedance analysis clothing

Bio-impedance analysis is used to measure body fat percentage. It is done using special scales or a hand-held monitor. As such, the measurement is a deliberate activity. It also suffers from some inaccuracy as it measures only from foot to foot, or hand to hand. If a web of wires is built into clothing, the measurement could be automatic, and the measurement could cycle through measuring from different points to different points, giving a much more accurate reading.
