Measurements of Electrical Bioimpedance (EBI) have been shown to be a valid method for characterising biological tissue non-invasively. The technologies used for implementing this measurement system are relatively simple when compared to other type of medical instrumentation. This has contributed to the proliferation of developing EBI systems but more focused in specific applications than in a generic approach and therefore the available analysis software tools are application specific completely close to user modifications and usually bounded to a specific measurement device. In this thesis an application suite has been implemented enabling the access to several analysis tools. The programming environment has been Matlab and the functions implemented are focused in spectroscopy and Cole model analysis. In order to offer a broad versatility of use to study EBI measurements this software application includes tools for plotting, correcting artefacts, performing Cole fittings, spectral and BIVA analysis.
