Electronic body mass index bathroom scale


This scale DOES NOT determine percent body fat, but instead Body Mass Index Read below
 

Physicians and health authorities world-wide use Body Mass Index (B.M.I) values to gauge a person's healthy weight based on weight and height.  Now the Salter 992 B.M.I. Scale gives you this information quickly, simply, and safely.  Calculates weight and B.M.I in 4 seconds!  The Quick-check category indicator shows B.M.I. and whether your body mass index value is underweight, normal, overweight or obese.  Simply enter your height in one of the 4 memory location, step on the scale and in 4 seconds the large display clearly shows your BMI.  The information will hold on the display for 10 seconds so your can step off and closely examine the displayed information.

No, this is not a body fat scale, but instead an bathroom scale with an added feature of a computer chip that determines you Body Mass Index.  Body fat scales like our best selling Terraillon TFA-20 or Tanita® line require the person stands on the scale with their bare feet and make contact with two electrodes that sends a small electrical current through your body to determine the electrical impedance, which factors into an algorithm correlating to a percent body fat.  The problem is you always have to take your socks off so the skin makes direct contact with the electrodes, and you may have dirty feet or calluses on heels or soles of the feet that can skew the percent body fat reading.

BMI works totally different and you can determine you BMI even with your shoes on.  It is a way of judging body weight in the context of height.  A weight of 180 is different on someone six feet tall than it is on someone five feet tall, especially when it comes to health. 

The U.S. National Institutes of Health has recently selected the Body Mass Index as the best initial rule of thumb for judging if your weight is in the potentially hazardous range.  Your Body Mass Index is your weight in kilograms (pounds divided by 2.2) divided by the square of your height in meters (inches times 0.0254, times itself).  It sounds complicated but don't worry the Salter 992 BMI Scale does all the calculations for you once you have stored your height (feet:inches or cm) in 1 of the 4 memory locations.

bathroom body fat scaleFive (5) large buttons on the bottom edge of the base feature 1- 4 memory locations to store up to 4 members height and the center button with a "weight symbol" can be used for weighing only.  Press the center button, the display will show "8888" and then "0.0".  Just step on the scale and the display will flash when your weight has been computed.

Salter is the United Kingdom's No.1 BRAND for domestic weighing scales, (currently around 40% market share), Salter Housewares Ltd has now become the leading brand in many other countries including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Chile and Portugal.

Now Salter is part of the USA based Weigh-Tronix Corporation, (a global provider of weighing solutions to commercial, industrial and domestic markets).  For a full 3 years Salter warrantees their product to be free of manufacturing and material defects.  Just send the scale to Salter located in New Jersey and they will repair / or replace at their discretion and return the unit postage paid.

Note: If you are heavily muscled, your BMI might incorrectly class you as overweight or obese when actually you don't have too much body fat.  Most of us are not heavily muscled, however, so don't reach for that explanation unless you're pulling down big bucks in professional sports or you've been pumping iron, serious iron, for some time.  But if you are under 5 feet tall, or elderly, or under age 18, BMI may not accurately indicate how much body fat you have.  BMI can't distinguish the weight of muscles mass or fat.  For example, an individual who carries more muscle mass/lean body tissue could get a false reading since BMI is a calculation weight in kilograms (pounds divided by 2.2) divided by the square of your height in meters (inches times 0.0254, times itself).  To be precise, it's not excess body pounds that threaten your health, it's excess body FAT.  Body Mass Index is an easily measured item that usually reflects, approximately, how much body fat one has.  (But it's not the same as your body fat percentage.)  Bodyfat scale also can provided skewed reading as explain here.  Some if you go with a bathroom body fat scale or bathroom BMI scale the readings can be skewed with the "% body fat" or "BMI reading", but either way you get a great bathroom scale to weigh yourself with an added twist. 

Disclaimer: Whether you choose the Salter BMI Scale or a body fat scale these are only tools providing only general information meant to assist in monitoring an individual's weight.  It is recommended that an individual always consult with their physician or health care provider for guidance in any weight loss monitoring.
