Weight and body mass index (BMI) alone can be misleading, so Tanita partnered with researchers and clinicians to design child body fat scales that give a truer picture of children’s health and fitness levels. Parents, educators, and caregivers can then use this technology to assess the effectiveness of lifestyle changes, while providing positive reinforcement for children. Tanita is the only company offering this FDA cleared technology for children age 5 to 17.
The Tanita BF-2000 IronKids® monitor features no display as it communicates to remote devices using radio wireless technology, and sends data to either a PC using the Tanita’s IronKids® software or the D-1000Plus Remote Display (sold separate). Why no display? This provides the ultimate in discretion; only an adult supervisor has visibility to the data, reducing the anxiety that is often associated with weight. When paired with Tanita’s FREE IronKids® software (included, unlimited users) the data can then be used to perform powerful tracking and comparisons for individuals and groups. The perfect tool for continual monitoring the health and fitness of children, endorsed by multiple school districts across the United States.
