Characteristics Tanita BC-545N scales


The Tanita BC545N is the perfect choice for fitness enthusiasts, active families and Personal Trainers; based on the very latest technology and research in body composition monitoring, Tanita has created a product that provides vital information which allows you to monitor the impact of your personal nutrition & activity programme.
 
The Tanita BC545N Segmental Body Fat Analyser is an advanced monitor with dual frequency technology that provides accurate and personalised body composition readings.
 
Segmental body analysis allows the user to analyse results in greater depth by breaking down the body into 5 separate segments; both arms, both legs and the trunk.
 
Segmental readings are given on weight, segmental fat percentage and segmental muscle mass. This information allows the user to look for physiological bio-mechanical differences and enables their training to be tailored accordingly.
 
The Tanita BC545N measures weight, muscle mass and body fat percentage. It also provides readings for basal metabolic rate (BMR), body mass index (BMI), bone mineral mass, metabolic age and visceral fat rating.
 
Healthy ranges and a physique rating are also provided while the Tanita BC545N also offers the user athlete and guest modes. Comparison graphs display a segmental history of readings, allowing users to monitor their progress over time.
 
The display screen provides clear, user-friendly animated illustrations and a calendar function is also included with a 5-user storage memory.
 
Tanita Innerscan body composition monitors are the next generation in healthcare. The technology used is based on the same advanced technology found in Tanita professional body composition analysers widely used by doctors, medical centres and by professional athletic teams, fitness clubs and personal trainers around the world.
 
The user stands on the platform of the scale, which incorporates six electrodes, and gently pulls the hand electrodes that are conveniently housed in the base unit using retractable connecting cables.
 
The monitor will then send a safe low voltage electrical current from the combined eight hand & footplate electrodes through the body. 
 
The resistance to the current, known as Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis (or BIA), is then fed into well-researched algorithms to provide accurate and personalized body composition readings.
 
Designed for the dedicated sports and fitness person to assess the impact of any training routine on their total and segmental body composition, this totally unique product gives individual body composition readings for each of 5 body segments - each arm, each leg and the trunk area. 
 
The retractable hand-grips allow full body composition to be taken quickly and with increased accuracy.
 
A calendar function is included, and comparison graphs show a history for each segment of the body and for each of the body composition readings, so that the user can see their progress, day by day, week by week and month by month. The backlit buttons and animated illustrations are clear and user-friendly, and the scales come with batteries included.

· Muscle Mass: Displays total muscle mass and each of the following; Left Arm, Left Leg, Right Arm, Right Leg, Trunk and a Physique rating.
 
· Physique Rating: Uses one of nine different physique types and matches you based upon a calculation that takes into consideration your body composition results.
 
· Weight: For ages 5 years and over.
 
· Total Body Water %: The ability to measure Total Body Water % (TBW%) is exceptionally useful as staying well hydrated is vital for both physical and cognitive performance.
 
· Bone Mineral Mass: There is a close correlation between bone mineral mass and fat free mass (FFM), exercise and a balanced diet will promote increased bone mineral mass.
 
· Visceral Fat: Visceral fat is also known as intra-abdominal fat; this fat is packed in between the internal organs. An excess of visceral fat, is known as a “pot belly” or “beer belly”, there are strong links between visceral fat and certain health related diseases such as coronary heart disease, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
 
· BMR: The number of calories your body needs when at rest. Metabolism speed is determined by numerous factors such as age, gender, muscle mass and body fat. It is possible to use this information to develop a fitness/weight loss program.
 
· Metabolic Age: As you grow older basal metabolic rate decreases, it tends to peak at about 16/17 years old. Metabolism age is the comparison of the users BMR, to the expected values based upon age.
 
· Daily - Weekly - Monthly Graph Function: Provides comparative data for up to four pre-programmed users.
 
· BMI: Body Mass Index uses an individual’s height and weight data to provide a kg/m2 result, this figure then relates to a set of ranges to determine whether an individual is underweight, healthy, overweight or obese.

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 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.

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 depends
on the robustness of the weighing mechanism and platform.

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.

Does this scale have a wireless Bluetooth option? WIll it interface with Apple health or any other health app? Asked by Trevor from HAmpshire Do you know the answer? Please let us know! 1 Answers

Dear Trevor, This scale does not have a bluetooth option available, and therefore also does not interface with any apps. The idea is for you to read your date from the scales itself, where your data will be stored (for up to 5 persons). Kind regards, ElleAnswered by fitnessdigital.com

Are the bc 545n better than the bc 601 scales? If so in what way?Asked by dom from london Do you know the answer? Please let us know! 1 Answers

Hello, "Better" is not the word.... An important difference is that the SD card is included in the BC601, this allows you to see the effectiveness of your fitness program. The information is automatically and you can download this information kept on your PC.. The BC545does not have this possibility.. The Tanita BC545N Segmental Body Composition Monitor does not measure like other scales with body analysis; it allows the user to analyse results in greater depth by breaking down the body into 5 separate segments; both arms, both legs and the trunk Hope this helps!
