The OMRON BF400 estimates the body fat percentage by the Bioelectrical Impedance Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues having a high water content that conduct electricity easily. Body fat is tissue that has little electric conductivity. The BF-400 sends an extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500 µA through your body to determine the amount of fat tissue. This weak electrical current is not felt while operating the BF400. The Bioelectrical Impedance Method safely combines the electric resistance with the distance of the electricity conducted. Correct posture and consistent measuring conditions need to be maintained for the best results.
DXA (Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry), has been the established method for accurate evaluation of body composition. OMRON has used research information from several hundred people using the DXA method to develop the formula by which the BF-400 works. The body fat mass and body fat percentage is calculated by a formula that includes five factors: electric resistance, height, weight, age and gender.
- This innerscan body composition monitor provides the body fat mass (%)
- Easy and acurate measures
- Auto off function
- Memory: 4 different profile data (age, gender and height) and the last weight measure
