Medical Clinic Norfolk

Medical Clinic Norfolk - BIA or also known as Bioimpedance Analysis is a really straightforward non invasive method used to be able to help calculate body composition. BIA device accurateness will depend on various things like the frequency at which measurements are taken and the choice of machine utilized.

BIA was initially used over thirty years ago to determine the total water content of an individual's body. This technique is made by means of passing a very minimal level electrical current through the body. The impedance to the flow of this current is then calculated.

There are two key ideas that BIA is based upon. First, an individual's body has water and conducts electrolytes. Water can be found within the bodies cells, in the ICF or otherwise known as intracellular fluid in addition to outside of the cells within the ECF or also known as extracellular fluid. At high frequencies the current goes through both the ICF and ECF whereas at low frequency, while a current passes through the ECF space it does not enter the cell membrane.

Second idea relates to the impedance of a geometrical system related to conductor length or its signal frequency over a cross sectional area. Putting all the concepts together, a fixed value for the impedance could actually be calculated from a fixed current going through the body. This current is inversely proportional to the quantity of fluid. Total fluid determinations can actually be made specific for extracellular fluid by appropriate choice of signal frequency.

Norfolk County is located on the north shore of Lake Erie in Southwestern Ontario's tobacco belt. Simcoe City serves as Norfolk County's county seat. Though referred to as a county, Norfolk is officially a rural city-status single-tier municipality. The last Census showed the municipality had a population of 62,563.

The area around Norfolk is surrounded by a lot of smaller communities which take advantage of some of the best agricultural land within Ontario. Because of the mild climate and long growing season, tobacco could grow well in the city of Norfolk. Because tobacco consumption declines and once-profitable tobacco operations slowly move to a more diversified approach, area farmers are starting to grow lavender, ginseng, hazelnuts and wolfberries. Norfolk County is gradually developing a small winery business and an agri-tourism industry. Greenhouse businesses are strong in Norfolk. There are numerous farmers who sell their products from the farmgate.

The area of Norfolk County has a large tourism industry due to its location close to Lake Erie, along Ontario's south coast. Norfolk county port towns, like Turkey Point, Port Dover, and Long Point, draw visitors interested in fishing, hiking, camping, birdwatching and cycling.

Norfolk is home to the Waterford Pumpkin Festival and the Norfolk County Fair & Horse Show, both held every month of October. PD13 is the Port Dover motorcycle enthusiasts' event held every year on the 13th of Friday.   More
