This body composition scale earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it provided the most accurate and most consistent body composition analysis. The University of Illinois Chicago’s Human Performance Lab compared their hydrostatic body fat measurements—full immersion in a tank of water to measure displacement—of panelists to each body composition scale’s readings, and The Best model was 97.25% accurate—far superior to lesser scales that were merely 92.69% accurate. Each model’s weight readings were compared to those taken on a digital scale, and The Best model deviated by only .04%. The Best model uses a harmless electrical impulse (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) to obtain readings, a method proven to be more accurate than the body mass index method used by typical scales. In addition to weight and body fat percentage, it measures and stores readings for body water, bone mass, and muscle mass for up to 12 users. Clear glass base. 400-lb. capacity. Includes two AA batteries. 13 1/2" L 12" W x 1" H. (5 1/4 lbs.)
Not for use by those with pacemakers.
