EDUCATION INFORMATION
IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO KNOW BEFORE USING YOUR BODY FAT SCALE
Before using the scale, you should know...
1. Why is it important to monitor percentage body fat (%BF)?
The absolute weight traditionally determines whether or not a person is obese. Weight
change in itself does not indicate whether it was the weight of body fat or muscle that had
changed. In weight management, it is desirable that muscle mass be maintained while body
fat is lost. Thus, monitoring the percentage of fat in the body is an important step toward
successful weight management and body health.
The optimal %BF of an individual varies according to age and gender. The tables below may
be used as a guide:

2. How is percentage body fat (%BF) estimated?
The percentage of BF is measured by a method called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA).
The use of BIA to estimate body fat has been pioneered since the seventies. It was only in the
past decade that the estimation of body fat using BIA technology was successfully offered to
the consumer as a compact bathroom scale. With BIA technology, a low intensity electrical
signal is sent through the body. The signal is very low and causes no bodily harm.
Depending on the amount of body fat of the individual, the electrical signal will flow with a
different degree of difficulty. The difficulty with which a signal flows through the body is called
electrical impedance. Hence, by measuring the electrical impedance and applying to the data
a proprietary algorithm, %BF can be estimated. Please note that the percentage of body fat
and body water will not add up to 100%.
Please be reminded that the %BF estimated with the scale represents only a
good approximation of your actual body fat. There exist clinical methods of
estimating body fat that can be ordered by your physician.

3. Why is it important to monitor percentage Total Body Water (%TBW) in the body?
Water is an essential component of the body and its level is one of the health indicators.
Water makes up approximately between 50-70% of the body's weight. It is present
proportionally more in lean tissue compared to fat tissue. Water is a medium for biochemical
reactions that regulate body functions. Waste products are carried in water from cells for
excretion in urine and sweat. Water provides form to cells; helps to maintain body
temperature; provides moisture to skin and mucosa; cushions vital organs; lubricates joints
and is a component of many body fluids. The amount of water in the body fluctuates with the
hydration level of the body and state of health. Monitoring the level of body water can be a
useful tool for one's health maintenance. Similar to body fat estimation, the %TBW function
provided in this scale is based on BIA.
The estimated %TBW may vary according to your hydration level, that is, how much water
you have drunk or how much you have sweated immediately prior to the estimation. For
better accuracy, avoid fluctuation in hydration level prior to the estimation. The accuracy of
the scale in estimating TBW will also decrease with individuals suffering from diseases that
tend to accumulate water in the body.
The optimal %TBW of an individual varies according to age and gender. The table below may
be used as a guide:
(Source: University of Illinois Medical Center, Chicago, USA)
Men
Women
%BF Range
Optimal % TBW Range
4 to 14%
70 to 63%
15 to 21%
63 to 57%
22 to 24%
57 to 55%
25% and over
55 to 37%
4 to 20%
70 to 58%
21 to 29%
58 to 52%
30 to 32%
52 to 49%
33% and over
49 to 37%
Please be reminded that the %TBW estimated with the scale represents only a
good approximation of your TBW. There exist clinical methods of estimating
total body water that can be ordered by your physician.
4. When should I use the scale’s body fat and total body water functions?
For maximum accuracy and repeatability, it is recommended that the scale's body fat and total
body water functions be used at approximately the same time of the day, e.g. before breakfast
in the morning. It is also a good practice to avoid swings in hydration level of the body prior to
the measurement. Establishing your own baseline value of %BF and %TBW and track their
changes is better than merely comparing your %BF and %TBW value to the population's
normal value.
5. Why is the Athlete Mode necessary in a Body Fat Analyzer?
It has been found that body fat estimation using BIA could overestimate the percentage body
fat of adult elite athletes. The physiological variation of athletes in bone density and level of
hydration are two of the reasons said to account for the difference.
The Athlete mode is selectable only for adults of 15 years of age or older.
6
0044-M380-O1 Rev A y ProDoc BFA Series
6. Definition of an Athlete
The general consensus among researchers is that a quantitative dimension could be used in
defining an athlete. For example, an athlete could be defined as a person who consistently
trains a minimum of three times per week for two hours each time, in order to improve specific
skills required in the performance of their specific sport and/or activity.
7. What is Muscle Mass?
Our Body Fat Scale estimates the weight of Skeletal Muscle Mass in your body.
You’ve got around 650 muscles in your body, and they make up roughly half of your body
weight. These muscles can be divided into three different groups: Skeletal, Smooth and
Cardiac. All of these muscles can stretch and contract, but they perform very different
functions.
Skeletal muscle: Produces movement, maintains posture, stabilizes joints and generates
heat
Smooth muscle: Found in the walls of hollow organs
Cardiac muscle: Exists only in your heart
Skeletal muscle (SM)
The tissue most commonly thought of as muscle is skeletal muscle. Skeletal muscles cover
your skeleton, giving your body its shape. They are attached to your skeleton by strong,
springy tendons or are directly connected to rough patches of bone. Skeletal muscles are
under voluntary control, which means you consciously control what they do. Just about all
body movement, from walking to nodding your head, is caused by skeletal muscle contraction.
Your skeletal muscles function almost continuously to maintain your posture, making one tiny
adjustment after another to keep your body upright. Skeletal muscle is also important for
holding your bones in the correct position and prevents your joints from dislocating. Some
skeletal muscles in your face are directly attached to your skin. The slightest contraction of
one of these muscles changes your facial expression.
Skeletal muscle generates heat as a by-product of muscle activity. This heat is vital for
maintaining your normal body temperature.
Skeletal muscle represents approximately 30% of body weight of a healthy 58 kg woman or
40% of a 70 kg man. (International Commission on Radiological Protection, 1975)
8. What is Bone Mass?
Our Body Fat Scale estimates the weight of non-living bone mineral content. This is
important for monitoring and maintaining healthy bones through exercise and
calcium-rich diet.
An adult skeleton is made up of 206 bones, which come in several different shapes and sizes
and have specific structure.
Your bones contain blood vessels, nerve cells and living bone cells known as osteocytes.
These are held together by a framework of hard, non-living material containing calcium and
phosphorous. A thin membrane called the periosteum covers the surface of your bones.
Bone Mineral Content differs according to age and sex.
For Adults: The average bone mineral content of 15-29 year old female is approximately 2.7 kg,
for a 15-29 year old male is approximately between 2.7 and 3.5 kg. (Rico et al. 1993)
For Children: The average bone mineral content of 8-16 year old child is approximately
between 0.8 and 2.2 kg. (Faulkner et al. 1993)

BATTERY OPERATION
Low Battery
When the batteries are near the point they need to be replaced, the display will show lobAt.
If the battery voltage drops too low for accurate weighing, the scale will automatically shut off and
you will be unable to turn it back on. When the lobAt message is displayed, the operator
should replace the batteries or remove the batteries and plug-in the 9V AC/DC adapter.
Automatic Shutoff
The Automatic Shutoff feature will turn the scale off after a period of inactivity (no motion or
weight on scale) to prolong battery life. The period of inactivity for the automatic shutoff is
selected during the setup process of the scale and can be set for up to nine (9) minutes. To
turn the scale back on, you simply press the ON/OFF key.
Sleep Mode
The Sleep Mode feature also conserves battery power when the scale remains unused and
will show SLEEP on the display to indicate the sleep mode has activated. The sleep mode
feature requires that no key is pressed on the keypad and the scale to remain at the center of
zero for a period of time to activate. The period of time for the sleep mode is also selected
during the setup process of the scale and can be set for up to nine (9) minutes. When a key is
pressed or weight is placed on the scale, it will wake up and return to the weight mode.
OPTIONAL AC POWER ADAPTER
To power the scale using the optional Medical device 9V AC/DC wall plug-in adapter (see Figure
No. 23), connect the plug from the adapter into the power jack on the back of the scale base and
