HOW TANITA BIA MEASURES YOUR BODY COMPOSITION
All Tanita Body Composition Monitors use advanced Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology.
When you stand on a Tanita body composition monitor, your feet will be positioned on the four metal electrodes. A very low, safe electrical signal will be sent through your feet to your legs and abdomen. In some segmental models, you will also hold 4 electrodes. The signal passes from your hands, arms and chest to your legs.
The signal passes quickly through the water held in hydrated muscle tissue but meets resistance when it meets fat tissue. This resistance, also known as 'impedance', is measured and input into scientifically validated equations that will calculate body composition measurements.
Depending on the monitor, body composition measurements are provided in under 30 seconds.
WHAT IS TANITA MULTI-FREQUENCY BIA TECHNOLOGY?
The Tanita Multi-Frequency Monitors are able to measure impedance at different frequencies.
The lower frequencies measure the impedance external to the cell membrane.
The higher frequencies are able to penetrate the cell membrane.
By measuring impedance at both the lower and higher frequencies it is possible to estimate extra-cellular water (ECW), intra-cellular water (ICW) and Total Body Water. This information is essential for providing the health status of a person and indicating health risks such as severe dehydration or oedema. The additional frequencies provide a higher level of accuracy compared to single frequency monitors.
