To get a complete Body Composition Analysis, you have to go to a specialized research center. However, there is an easier way. We offer you a fast and extremely accurate way to get a full body screen by using TANITA body composition scale. The scale will allow you to receive the following information about your body:

 

- body fat percentage;

- bone weight;

- muscle weight;

- internal ( visceral ) body fat percentage;

- physical type assessment;

- average calorie intake per day;

- proper percentage of water in the body;

- current biological age.

It is important to know this information in order to improve your health, lose weight and slow down age-related changes. This knowledge will help optimizing your health-related routine and enhance its’ positive affect on your body.

 

Why do you need to know your body fat percentage?

 

This is one of the main health indicators. Excess fat leads to sexual dysfunctions, heart diseases, cancer and diabetes.

 

Muscle mass deviations can lead to weakening of the immune system and lower your resistance to stress.

Reduced muscle mass can slow down the metabolic rate, which reduces the process of fat burning and negatively affects your overall state of health.

 

Insufficient bone mass can be an indicator of loss of calcium and other minerals that are necessary for successful body functioning. Knowing your numbers may help you detect and prevent early stages of osteoporosis.

 

Visceral fat is stored around important internal organs. High visceral fat percentage may increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.

 

Biological age is closely related to your level of metabolism. Unlike chronological age, it can be reduced by taking proper course of action. The scan will help you determine the age of your body functions and metabolic rate.

How does it work?

When you step on the analyzer scale, the monitor sends minor pulses of electrical current that safely pass through the body. Since muscle tissues contain large amounts of water, they act as electric current conductors. Adipose tissues are low in water so they are poor conductors and resist electric impulses. This resistance or 'impidans " gets compared with age, sex and height, which serve as the basis for body fat percentage and other indicators calculations.
