Tanita IRONMAN® Radio Wireless Segmental Body Composition Monitor

The BC-1500 IRONMAN® from Tanita is the world’s only radio wireless segmental body composition monitor.  Using ANT+ radio wireless technology, and FDA cleared Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology, it represents the most advanced home health monitoring product, providing a whole new level in measuring your Competitive Edge.  ANT+ provides a secure and straightforward wireless interface, simple plug and play.  And Tanita’s exclusive BIA technology allows this monitor to not only measures weight and body fat, it also provides muscle mass, body water %, basal metabolic rate (BMR), metabolic age, bone mass, visceral fat and rates body physique!  This combination allows you to accurately monitor the impact of any diet and fitness program.

The BC-1500 platform is designed to connect to your Windows personal computer running the free Healthy Edge Lite Software (limited to 8 users) and other compatible hardware and software using ANT+ protocol to record, graph, and analyze data on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis.

The BC-1500 is much more powerful than standard body composition monitors. This unique product uses innovative retractable handgrip electrodes, along with standard feet electrodes. These eight BIA electrodes allow the BC-1500 to provide a segmental review of the body.  Why segmental?  Simply put, segmental gives you more information than standard body composition monitors. It will provide individual body composition readings for each body segment: trunk, right arm, left arm, right leg and left leg.  The BC-1500 is especially useful for anyone who is monitoring the balance of left and right side of body or trying to build or rehabilitate a particular part of one's body.

The BC-1500 has a weight capacity of 330 pounds, comes packaged with Healthy Edge Lite Software, a USB Ant+ Stick and operates for greater than 1 year on four AA batteries (included).
