The BC-558 IRONMAN® Segmental Body Composition Analyzer from Tanita represents the most advanced home health monitoring product, a whole new level in measuring your Competitive Edge.  Technology found in the BC-558 is based on the same highly accurate, FDA cleared, advanced technology found in Tanita's professional line of segmental body composition analyzers. Utilizing Tanita’s exclusive bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) technology this monitor not only measures weight and body fat, it also tells you your muscle mass, body water %, basal metabolic rate (BMR), metabolic age, bone mass, visceral fat and rates your physique!

The BC-558 uses innovative retractable handgrip electrodes, along with standard feet electrodes. These eight BIA electrodes allow the BC-558 to go well beyond standard body composition; giving you a segmental review of what you’re made of.  Why segmental?  Simply put, segmental gives you more information than standard body composition monitors. This totally unique product gives individual body composition readings for each body segment- trunk, right arm, left arm, right leg and left leg.  The BC-558 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-558 features a dual LCD for displaying current measurements, as well as advanced graphing of historical results.   It has innovative backlit icons to illustrate the segmental body parts, operates on four AA batteries (included), and has a weight capacity of 330 pounds.
