Use a BIA scale to meet fitness and weight loss goals
Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) measures body composition based on the rate at which an electrical current travels through the body. Body fat (adipose tissue) causes greater resistance (impedance) than lean mass and slows the rate at which the current travels. BIA scales estimate body fat percentage using bioelectrical impedance analysis.
This appliance has the built-in option to calculate the percentage of your body fat by using bioelectrical impedance techniques. During calculation are also involved the following variables: height, age, gender, weight.
Bioelectrical impedance analysis devices are considered safe for most people. However, BIA should not be used by anyone with an electronic medical implant, such as a heart pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Also, most device makers recommend that pregnant people not use the products.
