26 measurements total(full-body and segmental)

Monitor physique changes and body balance

Exclusive new technology - Muscle quality score

The RD-545IM IRONMAN® provides an in-depth analysis of 26 body composition readings.  Measurements include: weight, body fat, muscle mass, muscle quality score, physique rating, bone mass, visceral fat, basal metabolic rate, metabolic age, total body water, and BMI.  The addition of the hand electrodes allows the RD-545IM IRONMAN® to perform a segmental fat and muscle analysis of the arms, legs, and trunk.  Analyzing the balance of muscle mass and muscle quality between the arms and legs is essential for athletes competing in speed sports such as biking and swimming.

A newly developed pulse measurement function provides a resting heart rate value that can be tracked along with body composition, linking cardiovascular health to body composition values and fitness. Integrated Bluetooth 4.0 Technology automatically uploads all this data to the free Tanita HealthyEdge Mobile App (iPhone iOS 8 or above, Android phone 4.4 or above and Amazon Fire Tablet Bluetooth LE support(2014) and above).  Viewing results and tracking progress is simple with easy-to-read charts, graphs and assessments. 

The RD-545IM IRONMAN® is an FDA cleared 510(k) type 2 medical device, with a weighing capacity of 440 lb (200 kg).  It uses BIA technology, which sends a safe, low-level electrical signal from foot and hand electrodes through the body to provide both a full body as well as segmental analysis.  BIA is quick and non-invasive, and is one of the most thoroughly tested and reliable ways to measure body composition, clinically comparable to DXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) and hydrostatic (underwater) weighing.

Tanita is the World’s First Company to use multi-frequency BIA in consumer scales.  This advanced technology provides an additional level of accuracy to the body composition analysis process by providing essential data of a person’s intracellular and extracellular status.  This allows us to analyze cellular structure, and determine the ‘quality’ of the muscle tissue, in addition to its mass.  Both ‘quantity’ and ‘quality’ of muscles are important for achieving high levels of performance in many sporting events.
