Tanita operates throughout the globe, including Australia, America, Europe, India, Japan and China, leading to over 30 million units sold worldwide to this day.With such a vast reach, Tanita has established itself as one of the world leaders in health monitoring, as well as body composition monitors and scales - which is unsurprising considering Tanita created the world’s very first electronic body fat scale back in 1994.
Studies have shown the results obtained through Tanita BIA have been shown to be within +/-5% of Underwater Weighing and Pencil Beam DEXA scans.
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is considered one of the most reliable and accessible methods of screening body fat. Electrodes in the foot sensor pads (and hand sensor pads in a segmental monitor) send a low, safe electrical signal through the body and weight is calculated automatically along with up to 25 other readings in seconds.
BIA measures an individual’s impedance or resistance to the electrical signal as it travels through the water that is found in muscle and fat. With a Tanita Body Composition Monitor, you add personal information (age, gender, height etc) into the monitor when setting up your own user memory profile, which then inputs your characteristics & calculations into the correct algorithms for you to produce the measurements provided by your reading.
Your total body health is more important than just one number. Measuring weight alone is not a complete nor accurate assessment of health or fitness level.
The total body weight measurement does not distinguish the difference between kilograms that come from fat, the kilograms that come from lean muscle mass, the weight of bone mass or the impact different body water levels have on your total body weight.
Monitoring body composition allows you to gain a deeper insight into your overall body health, giving you the knowledge that you can then use to make educated changes to your diet and fitness routines to achieve your health and fitness goals sooner.
To get the most reliable and accurate reading that best represents your actual total body health, use your Tanita Body Composition Monitor at a consistent time of day under consistent conditions, and at least three hours after rising, exercising, eating, drinking alcohol and taking medication.
For most, this time is usually mid-to-late afternoon, before dinner and before your afternoon/evening workout.
