Five reasons why Tanita BIA technology leads the way
Tanita is the global leader in health monitoring, having created the world's first stand-on Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) monitor for the professional market in 1992, followed soon after by the launch of a BIA monitor for home use in 1994.
Today, Tanita is the world leader in health monitoring and body composition monitors and scales, with sales of more than 20 million units worldwide.
The Tanita professional range of body composition monitors uses the most accurate, reliable and advanced health monitoring technology on the market and offers professionals the potential to expand their client services. Tanita BIA technology makes it possible to clearly demonstrate to clients the impact of their health, fitness or nutrition programme, for example, and provide an instant assessment of an individual's health status at any time.
Highest levels of precision and clinical accuracy The original prediction equations used in Tanita software were devised by world-renowned body composition expert Professor Steven Heymsfield and his research team at St Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, Columbia University, New York. Extensive independent research has proven that the accurate prediction of an individual's body composition can only be determined if a range of parameters are included in an algorithm, such as gender, age and height and weight.
Trusted by experts for clinical excellence Tanita BIA technology has been more extensively validated against alternative body composition techniques than any other company and the findings have been published in international medical journals. In addition, Tanita monitors have been used in hundreds of independent research studies worldwide. Tanita is regarded by the scientific community as the gold standard in BIA technology and the Tanita Medical Advisory Board ensures Tanita remains at the forefront of scientific advances.
Ground breaking advances in research Tanita continually invests in numerous research projects that focus on enhancing understanding of key health and fitness issues, including areas such as childhood obesity, optimising sports performance and sarcopenia in the elderly. Our aim is to work with experts to develop tools and technologies to assist all healthcare and sports professionals in providing the best possible services and to help people enjoy healthier lives.
Repeatability of measurements through precision weighing Precise weight measurements are essential for calculating accurate body composition measurements. Tanita prides itself on manufacturing highly accurate weighing mechanisms in both its home use and professional models. All Tanita medically approved professional monitors have been awarded NAWI Certification as well MDD Class IIa, FDA and CE Approval ensuring the highest standards are met.
