This allows parents to take care of their own health as well as their children's health, and introduce healthy habits into the family. The new monitors read the exact body fat % of children between 7 and 17 years old and indicate automatically the child's level of body fat and the category the child is in: low body fat rate, a healthy level or an excess level of fat or overweight.
Tanita is the world leader in precision electronic scales. With almost 50% of its domestic market share, the name of Tanita is now a household word in Japan.

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.

For more than 70 years Tanita Corporation (Japan), has been the world leader in precision electronic scales. 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.
