The Tanita IronMan Body Composition Monitor combines feet and hand sensors to produce what must be the ultimate map of your body. We’re talking not just mere body fat and weight here, but total body water, visceral fat rating, bone mineral mass, metabolic rate, muscle mass, daily calorie intake, plus…well you get the picture. Basically you’re going to end up knowing far too much about your sack of flesh, OK? And hey, there’s a guest mode, so you can like totally embarrass the mother-in-law. Double fun. £199.00.
The user stands on four footplates on the platform of the scale and gently pulls the hand electrodes that are conveniently housed in the base using retractable connecting cables. The monitor will then send a safe low signal from the 8 hand and footplate electrodes through the body. The resistance to the measurement (known as Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis or BIA) is then fed into researched equations to provide accurate and personalized body composition readings
