Measuring devices can be useful tools to obtain information about the body and physical activity.
Body composition monitors:
Body composition scales use various technologies such as bioimpedance to provide information about body composition. This includes factors such as body fat percentage, muscle mass, bone mass and body water.
These scales can help monitor progress on a fitness or weight loss program and track changes in body composition over time.
It is important to note that the accuracy of body composition scales can vary depending on the model and quality. Measurement results can be affected by factors such as hydration status, meals, skin hydration, and positioning on the scale.
Heart Rate Monitor:
Heart rate monitors are used to measure heart rate during exercise or physical activity. They can take the form of chest straps, wristbands, or optical sensors on wrists or fingertips.
By monitoring heart rate, you can determine your exercise intensity range and ensure that you are exercising in your desired heart rate zone.
Heart rate monitors can also be used to monitor recovery status after exercise and detect signs of overtraining or insufficient recovery.
As with body composition monitors, the accuracy of heart rate monitors varies from model to model. Optical sensors can be susceptible to movement or insufficient skin contact, while chest straps typically provide more accurate readings.
Both body composition scales and heart rate monitors can provide valuable information and help monitor physical health and exercise progress. However, it is important to note that these devices should be viewed as support tools and should not be used as the sole basis for exercise or health decisions.
Using clinically accurate Tanita Dual Frequency BIA technology, a complete body analysis can be performed in 15 seconds.

With the help of Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), total body water, body fat as well as fat-free mass can be determined. In addition, the body fat analysis scale Tanita DC-430, calibrated with stand, incl. printer and software, still gives an indicator for visceral fat, bone mass, muscle mass and metabolic age.
