Description: Tanita body composition monitor BC601

Tanita reinforces the upper performance range of body composition monitors with the Tanita Inner Scan BC601. The two-frequencies-measurement of the Tanita scales BC601 guarantees an even greater precision and reproducibility compared to the often used one-frequency-measurement. Thereby, a weak power is conducted through the body twice, one after the other, and the resistance is measured. The current conduction searches its way around the cells for the first frequency. At the second frequency, the current conduction goes through the cells.
The BC 601 scales of Tanita does not only measure the lower body like other body composition monitors but arms and trunc segments are also involved in body measuring. The user stands on the four electrodes of the thread and grasps the hand electrodes of the extensible connecting cable. Thereby, the electrical resistance gets measured five times on different distances - from foot to foot, from hand to hand, left hand to right foot, right hand to left foot, and left hand to left foot. This segment measuring, offering separate measuring values for each arm, leg and trunc zone, leads to a 100% covering of the body. Other manufacturers and models only reach a covering of 75 %, in contrast. The provided high precision has an effect on sportsment/sportswomen and person, whose physique deviates from the standard.

Being a premium body composition monitor, the Tanita BC601 has the approved Tanita Inner Scan functions which offer a detailed overview about the inner health. Besides muscle mass, body fat (both with evaluation) and water balance, the innovative body composition monitor BC601 of Tanita measures among others bone weight, organ fat and metabolic age. In addition, the scales BC601 measures the visceral fat bamm; this means the fat depots which are not under the skin (subcutaneous fat) but mainly in the free abdominal cavity (organ fat). Abnormally increased visceral fat, often originating from lack of movement and wrong nutrition, is a serious healthy risk - especially regarding cardiovasuclar diseases and diabetes, type II.
While measuring the metabolic age, the current basal metabolic rate of the body is calculated. This value indicates which age level the body of the user has at the moment. If the indicated age is higher than the actual age, the scales recommends the user to increase his/her basal metabolic rate by sports. By increasing sports activities, muscle tissue is built which burns more calories and reduces the metabolic age.
The handgrips and the big coloured display plus keys of the Tanita body composition monitor BC601 form a practical unit. Thereby, on the one hand, the use of the Tanita scales can be accomplished in standing position (instead of in squat-position). On the other hand, the values do not have to be read from the floor but are shown on hip height.

Un producto de mucha calidad a un precio al alcance de todos. Nos permite con exactitud, hacer una valoración corporal de bastante importancia para saber qué camino tomar en cuanto a la mejora del físico.

Le programme ne fonctionne pas sur Mac... c'est dommage, et donc cela ne sert à rien d'avoir pris les données transférables... A part cela, j'apprécie particulièrement la précision de la balance... cela m'aide à me motiver à perdre de la masse grasse.
