Product Description

Manufacturer's Description


Our revolutionary new InnerScan range provides information never before available from a consumer scale. Anyone who is serious about improving their total health and fitness will be able to see their personal progress. The monitors use Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) to monitor multiple components of overall health. The results are analyzed along with gender, age, height and weight for the most accurate and comprehensive at-home reading ever available. Measurements include Weight, Body Fat %, Body Water %, Bone Mass, Muscle Mass, Physique Rating, and exclusive to Tanita Visceral Fat Rating.

The Innerscan range of monitors are covered by a 3-year guarantee and include batteries and full instructions.


Muscles play an important role as they act as the body's engine in consuming energy (calories). As you exercise more, your muscle mass increase, which in turn accelerates the rate of energy or calories consumed. Increasing your muscle mass will raise your metabolic rate helping you reduce excess body fat levels and lose weight the healthy way. Your Tanita Body Composition Monitor will measure the weight of muscle in your body so you can easily see the rewards of your increased activity or exercise plan. You may also find that as you exercise more your weight may stabilise or even increase as your muscle mass grows and your body fat decreases.

Get active

Health experts recommend that kids are active for at least an hour every day - walking, cycling, dancing, and kicking a ball around in the back garden all count. Just 20 - 30 minutes a day or regular exercise for adults can have positive benefits on health and fitness levels. Regular exercise will improve balance and muscular strength helping to make heart and lungs more efficient, and can improve physical and mental health - no matter what your age.

Eat yourself healthy

Parents who enjoy a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetable set a good example for the children. As children grow older they often maintain the eating pattern that has been established at home. Try and open discussions about which foods are healthy and what their vitamin or nutrients are so they become more aware of what they are eating. Try to reduce the number of high fat, high sugar snack foods and drinks consumed on a regular basis. Eat 3 meals a day and turn meal times into an occasion by eating as a family as often as possible (preferably with the TV off!). Encourage your children to participate in the kitchen by letting them help in food preparation and cooking.

Think healthy to be healthy

By parents having a positive attitude to eating and exercise, kids are more likely to have a positive attitude too. If you or your child does start to fall outside the healthy body fat ranges make small and gradual lifestyle changes such as increasing activity.

Setting Your Baseline for Body Fat %

In order to make sense of your readings, you need to establish a baseline or reference point before you set your goals. It will help you measure your progress realistically over time.

Record your weight and body fat readings every day for a week (a month for women), taking the readings at the same time each day. Use the calculation below to determine your baseline average:

Add up your total weight and body fat readings, then divide by the total number of days you've measured. (this baseline calculation applies to Body Fat % only)

You should also make a note of any information that is relevant to your personal lifestyle such as exercise programmes, stress, alcohol consumption, menstruation, etc. These will also help you to understand the changes occurring to your body.

To be brief, this is an excellent tool for monitoring one's health in such detail I never realised possible. Far beyond your typical scales, those who are watching, reducing or trying to gain weight will benefit from the breakdown of your body into bone,fat and mucle composition, in addition to an analysis of your body type, calorie expenditure and possible health risks (based on the visceral or abdominal fat level). Some important things to consider:
- The technology: these scales do not directly measure any of the above; the values are calculated based on the bioelectrical signal passed through your lower body, your age, gender and activity level. Thus, the accuracy of a one-off throw away measurement will not be very good. The advantage of the product comes from consistent and careful monitoring over a longer period of time.
- The price: it isn't cheap, so ensure that you are paying for the features you actually want. Tanita offer more basic models at less of a premium.
- The product: if you simply want to know how much you weigh, you've found the wrong scales. I couldn't really see the advantage of these scales for anyone who isn't reasonably serious about their health and fitness.
So, if you want a more complete understanding of your body, and the effect of your lifestyle upon it, these scales may be what you have been looking for.

I have noticed that the Amazon description does not reflect the actual features of this particular model. These scales feature only the following:
- Body fat % measurements
- Total body water %
- Muscle mass
- Physique rating from a limited range of predefined body types
- Daily Caloric Intake estimates (which I have found to drastically overestimate my requirements. 3700kcal daily, anyone?

4.0 out of 5 stars all of the above 13 Feb 2012
Agree with all the above comments. Its slightly annoying not to be able to read all the display while standing on it, and until you get to know your way around, the icons for each measurement are quite similar and very tiny- I ended up photocpying & ernlarging the manual
Also it does say the scale can be used on carpet or hard floor, this isnt true, on carpet I only weigh about 30kg !

4.0 out of 5 stars Great scale for serious body monitors! 25 Sep 2011
Good looking scale. Impressive range of mertics. You need to read the instructions before you set it up but they are clear and well written on the whole although rather general - there could be some better explanations of the ranges of measurements. The scale gives accurate readings. A great purchase for those who want to monitor more than their weight.

I received this product yesterday and was quite looking forward to receiving it.

After the initial set up I noticed that no Basal Metabolic Rate nor Metabolic Age were indicated as stated on the product description on Amazon and one of the accompanying instruction manuals.

There is also no graph function either.

I verified this on Tanita's web site and their information for the BC571 clearly states that the inner scan does have Basal Metabolic Rate and Metabolic Age functions.

I contacted their customer service via email (located in The Netherlands) highlighting the fact that their web site and Amazon's depicts the product with these functions. I received a terse reply stating simply the recall functions of the device and that was it. A few emails later and I have to say that the customer service experience I received has deterred me from all future Tanita products, including this one.

The manner of their representative was simply insolent and shocking to be frank!

After such an experience I certainly can not recommend Tanita and shall be returning the item.

In terms of Amazon, they are as courteous as ever and deliver an excellent level of customer service - this actually makes customers want to come back!
