The addition of hand grips to Tanitas standard platform-based electrode system allows the BC-418 body composition analyzer to calculate regional body composition, empowering healthcare professionals to better determine health risk associated with visceral and abdominal fat.
Tanita is proud to introduce a significant improvement to the calculation of Basal Metabolic Rate. Instead of simply relying on weight, age and gender, Tanitas proprietary formula takes into account Fat Free Mass, providing a higher level of accuracy compared to current BMR.
Through the use of 8 polar electrodes, the Tanita BC-418MA Segmental Body Composition Analyser can show separate body mass readings for the right arm, left arm, trunk, right leg and left leg.
It also prints out a complete body composition profile in seconds: including Weight, Body Fat Percentage, Body Fat Mass, Fat Free Mass, Estimated Muscle Mass, Total Body Water and Basal Metabolic Rate. (See sample below)
The all-in-one compact column mount design, with integrated printer, makes the BC-418MA perfect for use in small, dedicated spaces.
Tanitas range of professional Body Composition Analysers provide weight and a complete body composition analysis in less than 30 seconds.
All professional models use a single-point load cell weighing system* in the scale platform to guarantee absolute precision and unbelievable longevity (up to 300 000 uses before calibration.)
