Abstract—A stable water balance is necessary for a functioning metabolism. Especially in daily routine dehydration is common. By data acquisition of different vital signs, which are influenced by changes in the total body water, a conclusion on the hydration status should be reached. The goal is to verify the equation for the determination of the total body water as well as the analysis of the hydration status by subsequent conclusion of the results. Seven participants are monitored during their daily routine. The parameters pulse, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, weight, skin moisture and skin conductance are detected. Based on the data acquisition, the total body water is calculated. Correlations between the vital signs and body weight can be detected. The results show that it’s possible to measure the hydration status by detecting vital signs. However, a person-specific calibration is necessary. Further investigations must be carried out to analyze influencing factors.
