Tanita UM-076 scalesFeatures Tanita UM-076 scales, ideal home healthcare product
This new model is prepared to monitor multiple components of overall health, including weight, body fat %, body water %, muscle mass, visceral fat rating and basic metabolic rate.
Forget about your weight in kg and learn to understand how your body works when training and enjoying a healthy diet, using scales that give you information about fat, muscle and hydration.How does it work?
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. The quality of the equations used to calculate personalised body fat / composition readings depends on how many people have participated in previous studies.Therefore Tanita has done medical research and studies in which more than 100,000 people of different size, age, gender and body composition from all over the world have participated.And that's also the reason why This is why Tanita earns excellent marks for accuracy.Body fat%:
The You Are What You Eat body composition monitor uses the latest Tanita Bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology to provide vital information about your body. This personalised information can be used to accurately track the impact of your diet and fitness programme over time helping you keep focused and motivated in achieving a healthy lifestyle for the whole family.Body water %:
Informs you about even the slightest change of hydration level.Finding the right balance of water intake will ensure your body functions efficiently, will make you feel healthier and more alert and will reduce the risk of serious health problems. Being properly hydrated will also ensure you are performing at your best, allowing you to exercise longer. The new Total Body Water Percentage feature on selected Tanita Body Fat Monitors will help you to remain within the healthy total body water ranges.Muscle mass:
Important for people who are on a diet or do a lot of exercise. Muscles play an important role as they act as the body's engine in consuming energy (calories). As you exercise more, your muscle mass increase, which in turn accelerates the rate of energy or calories consumed. Increasing your muscle mass will raise your metabolic rate helping you reduce excess body fat levels and lose weight the healthy way.Visceral fat rating:
Very important, as this is the fat that is in the internal abdominal cavity, surrounding the vital organs in the trunk (abdominal) area. Viscal fat is the most dangerous fat; Tanita is the only brand that takes this into account.Basal metabolic rate:
The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories the body needs when at rest. The speed of your metabolism is determined by many factors such as gender, age, muscle mass compared to body fat and the amount of physical activity undertaken on a regular basis.For instance, the more muscle or general activity a person takes the more calories required - a diet and fitness program can be based on this information. Taking weight measurement only:
This means that only the body weight value of the user will appear, not the body fat %.Besides,
Tanita UM-076 monitors give extra information like recommended fat% both for adults and children. The monitor allows you not only to monitor your own body fat %, but your children's body fat % as well, so that you can encourage them to stay within the healthy body fat range as they develop.Tanita UM-076 also has:
8 memories to keep the information previously obtained for the whole family.
Recall function for weight, body fat %, body water % and muscle mass, to obtain the other previous readings.
Guest mode which allows you to program the unit for a one-time use without resetting a personal key.
Child mode, from 5 years.
Extra large screen to make reading of the information easier.Compare TanitaImportant
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.** Those scales are for home use only, not for professional use!
