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 muscle mass feature indicates the weight of muscle in the body. The Body Water % is the total amount of fluid in the body expressed as a percentage of total weight. The BMR is the daily minimum level of energy or calories your body requires when resting (including sleeping) to function effectively. The Metabolic Age compares your BMR to the average age associated with that level of metabolism. The Bone Mass is the weight of your bone in your body. The Visceral Fat is the fat in the abdominal cavity (stomach), surrounding the vital organs. The Physique Rating is a rating of your body type; 1-9.
