Professional Scales

Tanita's line of US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved professional scales incorporate state-of-the-art #technology within the most user-friendly package in the industry. Our Legal for Trade professional product line provides invaluable information to: clinical researchers #and medical experts, point-of-care physicians in the Acute Care, Long-Term Care, Pediatric and Veterinary practices, sports coaches (wrestling, #training rooms), #and scientists working in the fields of obesity, cardiology, physiology, diabetes, nutrition, chiropractic, and rehabilitation therapies. These monitors and doctor scales, physician scales also help doctors by improving patient understanding and compliance in treatment programs and provide greater accessibility for patients, as well as, increased portability and accuracy for healthcare professionals in the geriatric and bariatric fields.

Tanita's wide variety of professional analyzers provide a detailed full body and segmental body composition analysis - weight, impedance, body fat percentage, body fat mass, body mass index (BMI), fat free mass, estimated muscle mass, total body water, and basal metabolic rate (BMR) for the entire body by using Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) or Direct-Segmental Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (DSM-BIA) technology (two of the most thorough and reliable ways to measure body composition). All scales are built with Tanita's high standards, and many products feature a convenient carrying case, height rod, USB (Type B) & RS232 outputs, software, and a remote display, guaranteeing #long-lasting performance, even in the most demanding healthcare environments.

Tanita's best-selling professional line #of high-capacity scales include pediatric/pediatrician (baby, neonatal) scales, physician scale, hospital scales, digital column scales, wheelchair scales, handrail and beam scales, NTEP scales, food/restaurant scales and a collection of laboratory scales. The lab scales are used for a #variety of diagnostic measurements, including hypertension, metabolic syndrome, childhood obesity, and visceral fat detection used to identify bariatric surgery cases and those who may be at a higher risk for cancer.

As the world-leader in providing scales for healthcare professionals, Tanita scales are more affordable and convenient than DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) or hydrostatic weighting, yet offer accuracy used in measuring multiple frequency BIA. Our scales provide insight into such indicators as weight loss, caloric intake, diet and #exercise, adipose tissue, and total body water (intracellular and extracellular water) in both pounds and kilograms - making them useful for fitness gyms and clubs as well. #Some models feature stadiometers (height rods), are EMR compatible, are Welch Allen compatible, and wireless output, but all are ISO 9001 certified. TANITA is the only scale trusted by the NCAA Wrestling Championships, USA Wrestling, the Midlands Wrestling Championships, the Reno Tournament of Champions, the Dan #Gable International Wrestling Institute #and Museum as well as countless other tournaments, programs and organizations worldwide

Consumer Scales

Tanita's robust line of #best-selling consumer scales and body composition monitors meet the highest health standards, and are FDA approved (US Food & Drug Administration). While competitors #bypass this stringent process, all Tanita scales and monitors undergo the quality tests and measures required by the FDA to ensure health care professionals and consumers get the highest quality products on the market.

By using Tanita's BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) technology, our body composition monitors can measure #your: weight, body fat percentage, body water percentage, muscle mass, physique rating, basal metabolic rate (BMR), daily caloric intake (DCI), metabolic age, bone mass, and visceral fat. These clinically-researched scales / analyzers serve a wide range of health-conscious consumers (from beginner to advanced), by offering: standard digital weight-only scales, bathroom scales, dial and analog scales, solar-powered scales, high-capacity scales with large platforms, body fat scales, body water scales, Ironman, Iron Girl, and InnerScan branded lines, as well as, software and scales with outputs…and even the first wireless Bluetooth scales and ANT+ scales!

With current advances in technology, Tanita's newest products provide segmental body composition readings to aid in injury rehabilitation for competitive athletes that participate in such sports as such as triathlons, marathons, boxing, gymnastics, swimming, Ultimate Fighting, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). In addition, Tanita offers the highest level of precision available to consumers with 0.1 lb (50 grams) accuracy, providing consumers the power to see even the slightest change in their bodies. Rounding out the Tanita consumer line is a collection of accurate kitchen scales to control food portion size, pedometers, heart rate monitors, and electronic jump ropes.

Tanita's new kids scales give parents the ability to track not only weight but also body fat percentage. These children scales are also available with ANT+ wireless options, giving users the ability to send the readings directly to our IronKids software.

These scales are designed for children ages five to seventeen years old, taking each gender's physical developmental milestones into account for accurate masurements.

As the world-leader in providing accuracy and reliability for consumers, Tanita scales are more affordable for consumers than DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) or hydrostatic weighting, and more convenient and private than skin fold (calipers) tests. Our consumer scales allow for personal, in-home monitoring, detailed analysis of diet, and exercise and weight loss progress, while also offering modern design. Tanita scales feature multiple person memory with recall, sleek glass platforms with transparent electrodes, and a low profile. They are ISO 9001 certified and measure in both pounds and kilograms.
