Tanita Body Composition Monitors can give you a true insight into your total body health. Using advanced dual-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis technology, the readings provided are reliable and accurate.
When you stand on a Tanita monitor, a very low, safe electrical signal is sent from four metal electrodes through your feet to your legs and abdomen. In segmental models, the four hand-held electrodes will provide extra readings for each leg, arm and abdominal area. The muscle, fat, bone and water in your body conduct electricity at different rates. These rates of resistance are measured by the monitor.
Tanita Body Composition Monitors process this information combined with formulas and data such as your gender, height, activity level and age. This provides you with a wealth of measurements regarding fat, muscle, bone and water that give you a deeper understanding into your body composition and health.
