Multiple frequency bioimpedance devices for fluid management in people with chronic kidney disease having dialysis

Summary

Commissioned and funded by the NIHR HTA programme (project number 15/17/07), the aim of this review is to assess the clinical and cost-effectiveness of multiple frequency bioimpedance devices for fluid management in people with chronic kidney disease having dialysis. The devices being considered as an alternative to standard clinical assessment in the UK are: BCM – Body Composition Monitor, BioScan 920-II, BioScan touch i8, InBody S10, and MultiScan 5000. The assessment is being conducted according to current methodological standards. A de novo economic model is being developed to assess the cost-effectiveness of use of the specified devices versus standard clinical assessment. The review protocol is available at:
