Simplicity at your fingertips

Integrated Windows® for Maximum Flexibility

For the first time a fully featured Windows® real time operating system has been incorporated allowing maximum flexibility in downloading data, uploading updates and connecting printers and other accessories for data output.

Physique Rating

Physique rating assesses muscle and body fat rating into 9 body types. As activity levels
change over time the balance of body fat and muscle will alter which will change the user’s
overall physique.

Segmental Analysis

The segmental readings provide indepth information for each arm, leg and the trunk
area. By comparing the results to average readings shown with the blue and green shaded
areas, the user can instantly see how their own fat and muscle levels compare.

Muscle Mass Balance

Shows the balance of muscle between the left and right side of the body.

Leg Muscle Score

A score is given to the user's physical condition, and plotted against average healthy values for gender and age. The score is based on the user's leg muscle mass divided by their body weight. e.g. a healthy 20-25 year old should achieve a score of 100.

Body Fat Distribution

The ratio of upper to lower body fat is calculated, and plotted against average healthy values for gender and age.


Shows the first, past and most current core measurements. This information is also
plotted on easy-to-read graphs.

Reactance Resistance and Phase Angle Readings

The Reactance Resistance table indicates measurements for the impedance flow at each of the 6 multi frequency signals. Phase Angle is also shown. H-L = Hand – Leg, RL = Right Leg,
LL = Left Leg, RH = Right Hand, LH = Left Hand, L-L = Leg to Leg

Inbuilt Software in 14 languages.

All of the in-built software is displayed in 14 languages (English, German, Spanish, Turkish, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Greek and Russian) making the administrator set up and usability simple, fast and stress free.

Core Body Composition Details

This table and graph shows the core components of body composition. The data is represented in kg and % formats to provide a clear picture of their health and fitness status. The Desirable Range indicates general healthy ranges whereas the Target is pre-set to act as a motivator.


The Basal Metabolic Rate shows the number of calories required to keep the body  functioning when at rest. This is further supported by a chart showing the effectiveness of burning calories. Visceral Fat is the harmful fat in the abdominal area. The rating indicates whether the level is within the healthy range. Measuring levels of body water is especially important for patients, the elderly, children and athletes.

Total Body Water shows the weight and % of water in the body. This is further divided into extra cellular and intra cellular water levels. The ECW/TBW ratio shows the relationship between extra cellular water and total body water. The optimal level is considered to be around 40%.

Maximum Weight Capacity: 300 kg (Including Preset tare value)
Minimum Graduation 0.1 kg
