Highest levels of precision and clinical accuracy.
The original prediction equations used in Tanita software were devised by world-renowned body composition expert Professor Steven Heymsfield and his research team at St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, Columbia University, New York. Extensive independent research has proven that the accurate prediction of an individual’s body composition can only be determined if a range of parameters are included in an algorithm, such as gender, age and height and weight.
Trusted by experts for clinical excellence.
Tanita BIA technology has been more extensively validated against alternative body composition techniques than any other company and the findings have been published in international medical journals.
