Keep tabs on your weight and your body fat with the FitScan UM-028F Body Fat Monitor, using Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA), a clinically validated FDA cleared method of determining body fat. BIA sends a low current through the body, it passes freely through the fluids contained in muscle tissue and in blood, but encounters difficulty when passing through fat tissue, which contains little water. By using the impedance reading along with gender, age, height and weight the scale can quickly
and reliably calculates body fat.
The UM-028F features an auto recognition that allows you to simply input your user information once, and the scale will automatically recognize you as the appropriate user. With a 300 pound weight capacity it uses four AA batteries (included) for a greater than 2 year battery life.
