BIA sends a low current through the body, it passes freely through the fluids contained in muscle tissue and in blood, but encounters difficulty when passing through fat tissue, which contains little water. By using the
impedance reading along with gender, age, height and weight the scale can quickly and reliably calculate body fat and total body water. Tanita Body Fat Monitors provide vital in-depth information that allows you to accurately observe the impact of a diet and fitness program.
