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
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 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.
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.
Note: Pregnant women should not use this monitor, and if you have a pacemaker or other internal electronic medical device, you should not use the body composition reading feature.
