Features Tanita BC-543
BC-543 Innerscan Bodyfat Composition Monitor with transparent electrodes

Description:
The BC543 uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to give you information about your weight, body fat % and total body water %.

Features of this model:
Informs about the recommended body fat % for children.
Monitors body fat % and body water % (from 1%).
Athletes mode, the different modes adapt the results to the individual body composition of the user.
Guest mode, allows you to program the unit for a one-time use without resetting a personal key.
For children (age 7-17), the unit will only display information that is suitable for children between 7 and 17 years old. This information has been established by health experts and paediatricians and therefore only includes the weight, BMI and the body fat % of the child (it will not display the Healthy Range Indicator).
Taking weight measurement only means that only the body weight value of the user will appear, not the body fat %.
Recall function for weight, body fat %, body water % and muscle mass, to obtain the other previous readings.
4 memories to keep the information previously obtained.
3 year guarantee.

How do body fat monitors and body composition monitors work?
Bio Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) – provides personalised readings to the user.

How it works:
A low, safe signal is sent through the body via metal footpads on the scale platform.  Based on the principle that muscle tissue contains high levels of water, and therefore acts as a conductor for the signal. Fat contains little water and acts as a resistor to the flow of the signal.

This resistance or ‘impedance’ is set against gender / height / age and is used to calculate personalised body fat and composition readings.

Advanced dual frequency technology:
Based on the same principle as BIA but is far more advanced allowing additional body composition readings (abdominal fat, metabolic age etc) to be attained for each user.

Basic Metabolic Rate (BMR)
 
Shows you the metabolic age of your body.This function calculates the BMR (Basic Metabolic Rate) and the average age that is normally related to this type of metabolism. If your metabolic age is higher than your real age, it means that you need to improve your basic metabolism, for example by doing more exercise. Doing exercise helps to create healthy muscular tissue, and as a consequence your metabolic age improves. Measurements you can see on the screen go from 12 to 50; if measurement is for instance less than 12, a "12" will be shown on the screen, if it is more than 50, a "50" will be shown.

BIA accuracy depends on:
•  Size and number of the footplates – four footplates are required to ensure maximum accuracy of body fat readings.
•  Quality of equations used to calculate personalised body fat / composition readings.  The larger the sample size and techniques used for research the more accurate the equations will be. Tanita for example has used over 100,000 people world wide to ensure maximum accuracy of readings.
•  Weighing accuracy – essential for consistent readings over time. This dependson the robustness of the weighing mechanism and platform.

How do our competitor's body fat monitors work?

What we need to know about body mass rating:
Measuring weight alone is not a completely accurate assessment of health or fitness because it doesn't distinguish pounds that come from fat and pounds that come from lean muscle mass. Many manufacturers have taken advantage of this and make their customers believe their monitors use BIA tecnology. Just using basic calculation of Body Mass Rate products can be sold at a lower price, but they are much less accurate. Those are the reasons why:
· The body mass index is a generic mathematical formula derived from height and body weight.
· The equations of body mass index do not directly measure body fat and body water, etc., but they do understand that the higher the BMI, the higher the body fat index.
· Research and studies prove that the body mass index is inaccurate in 25% or 30% of cases, because they do not distinguish muscle and fat. This inaccuracy increases even more if the user is for instance an athlete or a child. Any monitor with only two electrodes at the base body mass index in order to give the results of its readings. But they do not take into account muscle mass, belly fat etc.

Important

The French company of AFNOR for Standardisation’s services, has extensively investigated a large number of brands that offer monitors that calculate and inform about body fat and accurate weight. The organization has granted certification NF398 only to two companies; one of those is Tanita. NF certification guarantees the accuracy of BIA technology as well as high level quality controls that are implemented during the manufacturing process.

For the last 40 years Tanita's core business has been the manufacturing of precision scales. Today, Tanita is looking beyond scales to products that enable consumers to monitor their own health. Based on medical evidence linking excess body fat to heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers, Tanita introduced the world's first integrated body composition analyzer/scale to the professional markets in 1992. Using the same technology used in our professional analyzers Tanita developed the world's first scale plus body fat monitor for home use in 1994. Backed by extensive clinical research and an independent medical advisor board, the accuracy, innovation and durability of Tanita scales are trusted worldwide.

Tanita is a pioneer in the development of BIA Technology, an extremely reliable method for body composition analysis. Tanita invented the world?s first stand-on Body Fat Monitor in 1992 and now all Tanita Monitors use Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to send a low, safe signal through the body. The signal passes freely through blood, water and fluids within muscle tissue, but meets resistance when it comes into contact with body fat.

With a perfect combination of innovative health technology and stylish design, Tanita brings you a range of products designed to help you lead a healthier and fitter life.

On the tanita bc543 scales what age does the metabolic age go up to? I know some of them only go as far as 50.Asked by amie from cobh Do you know the answer? Please let us know! 1 Answers

Hello, The metabolic age is a reference to analyse the metabolic age of your body. This function calculates the BMR (Basic Metabolic Ind.) and the average age that is normally related to this type of metabolism. Tanita advises it is under your real age, but it is just a reference! for users over 50 it will always give readings for max. 50 years old. Remember tThis function calculates the BMR (Basic Metabolic Ind.) and the average age that is normally related to this type of metabolism If your metabolic age is higher than your real age, it means that you need to improve your basic metabolism, for example by doing more exercise. Doing exercise helps to create healthy muscular tissue, and as a consequence your metabolic age improves. Measurements you can see on the screen go from 12 to 90; if measurement is for instance less than 12, a "12" will be shown on the screen, if it is more than 90, a "90" will be shown.
