Abstract—Human body composition (e.g., total body water, body fat, muscle) determines health to a large extent. The advent of Android has had a significant impact on the way people manage information. Taking advantage of this emerging technology to realize effective management of human body composition information can offer some help and reference for medical and health care. In this paper, we propose an Android-based human body composition information management system. Five major subsystems of our system were first designed and presented. The underlying data process flow was also given in detail. We then discussed a number of key technologies used to realize the system, including user interfaces, data communication, data synchronization and file upload. The proposed system features excellent user experience, low energy consumption, good mobility and portability, etc. Compared with systems running on desktop PCs, laptops or on traditional embedded systems, our proposed system combines their advantages, overcomes some of their major drawbacks and has better usability.
