Personal and professional weight scales, body composition, and health monitoring equipment
The BC-549plus IRONMAN® Body Composition Monitor from Tanita, offers both an expanded weight range and larger platform. This highly accurate FDA cleared body composition monitor not only measures weight and body fat, it also tells you your

The Metabolic Age compares your BMR to the average age associated with that
level of metabolism. The Bone Mass is the weight of your bone in your body. The Visceral Fat is the fat in the abdominal cavity (stomach), surrounding the vital organs. The Physique Rating is a rating of your body type; 1-9.
