Body composition scales
TANITA believes in Healthy Habits for Happiness. Healthy habits lead to a positive life and a healthy body. Monitoring your new behaviour over time will help you to maintain these healthy habits.
A healthy body not only concerns your weight, but in fact depends on several other factors. How can you measure these? With a body composition scale. This scale measures more than just weight. It is important to have a good balance between the different health factors. For example, body analysis scales allow you to measure the balance between the water, muscle and fat levels in your body, giving you a better idea of your overall health. Can you use some extra motivation while losing weight and/or getting fitter, or would you like to work on your healthy habits? Then a body composition scale from TANITA will help you with that.
Functions body composition scale
A body composition scale measures much more than just weight. This way, the balance between different health factors is monitored and so you know exactly what you need to focus on to achieve your health goal. Benefit from Japanese technology with new health insights and extremely accurate measurements.
What particular health values can be measured with a body composition scale?
Body fat percentage: A healthy fat percentage is important for your body. For example, it is unhealthy to have either a fat percentage that is too high or too low. Body fat has multiple functions, including protecting organs and retaining body heat. Therefore, a fat percentage that is too low can be detrimental to your immunity. On the other hand, a fat percentage that is too high can actually cause health problems, such as diabetes or obesity. With the help of our body composition scale, you can easily keep track of this.
Body Water: Your body needs water to function properly. Some days your body retains more water than others. A normal scale would show a higher weight, which is demotivating, while in reality, this is just an increase in body water.
A body composition scale from TANITA gives you more insight into your body and your body water, so you can accurately monitor the actual changes to your body.
Muscle mass: During exercise, you build muscle mass, which leads to burning more calories and energy. This increases your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which helps you lose weight and build muscles. Building muscle mass often keeps your weight the same, or even causes you to experience weight gain. This can be frustrating if you want to lose weight. A body composition scale offers vital support, because it shows you the total weight of muscle in your body.
Muscle quality: This unique measurement indicates the quality of your muscles. Muscle quality is strongly dependent on factors such as age and training level. The muscles of young people or people who exercise regularly are normally in good condition, while the condition of the muscles deteriorates in older people or in people who do not exercise enough.
Bone mass: As you get older, your bone mass may change. In fact, after the age of 30, your bone mass gradually decreases. A healthy lifestyle protects the density of your bone mass, which can prevent possible problems. Prevention is better than cure, which is why it is smart to monitor and control your bone mass. Again, the body composition scale from TANITA can help you with this.
Basal Metabolism (BMR): The BMR, or resting metabolic rate, is the amount of energy your body burns daily when your body is at rest. In other words, the BMR says something about the number of calories you need daily to keep your body functioning, without exerting physical effort. A body composition scale from TANITA scans your entire body and therefore accurately calculates the BMR.
Metabolic Age: A body analysis scale uniquely calculates your metabolic age by comparing your basal metabolic rate with the average BMR of your age group. Are you above the average BMR? Then your metabolism could use some improvement. Are you below the average? Then you are doing well!
Body Mass Index: also known as BMI. This shows the ratio of your weight to height. A healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 25.
Visceral fat: The body fat that is around your waist is also called visceral fat. It is the fat that surrounds your organs. High levels of this fat can lead to serious health problems. It is sometimes difficult to determine if someone has high visceral fat because it cannot always be seen from the outside. In fact, some people are "skinny fat," meaning they look slim on the outside, but still have high levels of visceral fat. Get more insight into this, using our body composition scale.
