Bio Impedence Analysis

THE TANITA INNER SCAN BIO-IMPEDENCE
BODY COMPOSITION MONITOR

Helps you see what is going on inside your body

The Tanita Inner Scan Bio-impedence Body Composition Monitor is able to give individual, accurate body composition readings. These scales will measure:

  • Your weight.
  • Body fat % – including right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg, and trunk.
  • Muscle mass – lean weight, including right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg, and trunk.
  • Visceral fat – fat surrounding the internal organs in the stomach/trunk area of your body. Ensuring you have healthy levels of visceral fat reduces the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • Physique rating – describes your overall physique or body shape by examining the balance between the amounts of body fat and muscle in your body
  • Total body water % – hydration.
  • Bone mineral mass – bone health.
  • Basal Metabolic Rate – Indicates the number of calories your body burns when at rest. The InnerScan takes the amount of muscle in your body into account, giving a more accurate picture of your dietary requirements. Your BMR will tend to decrease as you get older – you can help prevent this through a regular routine of cardiovascular exercise and increased activity
  • Metabolic age – your BMR starts to decrease after the age of 17 and the metabolic age rating indicates what age level your body is currently rated at. Aim to keep young!

The measurements are taken quickly and accurately by standing on the foot plates and by pulling the hand electrodes.

The Tanita Inner Scan works by using BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis), which is a safe, low electrical signal sent through the body. As the current encounters different kinds of fluids and tissues, it will determine how much of it is fat (fat is harder to get through) and how much is muscle (the current will pass easily through muscle, which is made up of mostly water). The resistance to the measurement is then fed into researched equations to provide your personalized body composition readings.
