The world's first consumer body fat scale was introduced by TANITA in 1994.
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 scale measures the resistance to the signal as it travels through the water that is found in the muscle and fat in your body.
The more muscle a person has, the more water their body can hold.
The greater the amount of water in a person’s body, the easier it is for the current to pass through it.
The more fat in the body, the more resistance there is to current.
The measurement allows us to determine the weight of your body fat, your lean body mass and your total body water.
Your personal BCA printout shows, in addition to where you fall on the Body Mass Index (BMI), other vital information.
It shows what percent of your body mass and what percent is lean mass.
You don’t want to just “lose weight,” because you could be losing the wrong kind of weight.
The weight you want to lose is “fat weight,” not lean mass – the muscle, bone, tissue, and organs that keep us alive, energetic and functioning.
The scale is a good indicator of what your total body mass weighs.
But when you need to lose weight, you want to target the fat mass so you are losing fat.
You want to minimize lean tissue loss.
An ordinary scale doesn’t tell you that.
The scale only tells you if your weight is up or down.
