Information on body composition
20.Information on Body Composition
Principle of body composition calculation
Body fat has low electric conductivity
The BCM-500 measures the body fat percentage by the Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) method.
Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues with a high water content that conducts electricity
easily. Body fat is tissue that has little electric conductivity. The BCM-500 sends an extremely weak
electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500 µA through your body to determine the amount of fat
tissue. This weak electrical current is not felt while operating the BCM-500.
In order for the scale to determine your body composition, it uses the electrical impedance, along with
your height, weight, age and gender information to generate results based on OMRON’s data of body
composition.
Recommended measurement times
Understanding the normal changes in
your body fat percentage can help you in
preventing or reducing obesity. Being aware
of the times when the body fat percentages
shift within your own daily schedule will assist
you in obtaining an accurate trending of
your body fat. It is recommended to use this
monitor in the same environment and daily
circumstances. (See chart)

Recommended time
Going to bed
Before going to bed and about 2
hours or more after dinner or bath
Avoid taking measurements under the following conditions:
-- Immediately after vigorous exercise, after a bath or sauna.
-- After drinking alcohol or a large amount of water, after a meal (about 2 hours).
If a measurement is taken under these physical conditions, the calculated body composition may differ
significantly from the actual one because the water content in the body is changing.
What is BMI (Body Mass Index)?
BMI uses the following simple formula to indicate the ratio between weight and height of a person.
BMI = weight (lb) / height (inches) / height (inches) × 703
The OMRON BCM-500 uses the height information stored in your user ID or when entering information
in the Guest Mode to calculate your BMI classification.
If the fat level revealed by BMI is higher than the international standard, there is an increased
likelihood of common diseases. However, not all types of fat can be revealed by BMI.
27
What is Body Fat Percentage?
Body fat percentage refers to the amount of body fat mass in regards to the total body weight
expressed as a percentage.
Body fat percentage (%) = {Body fat mass (lb) / Body weight (lb)} × 100
The BCM-500 uses the BI method to estimate your body fat percentage.
Depending on where the fat is distributed in the body, it is classified as visceral fat or subcutaneous
fat.
What is Visceral Fat Level?
Visceral fat = fat surrounding internal organs
Too much visceral fat is thought to be closely linked to increased levels
of fat in the bloodstream, which can lead to common diseases such as
hyperlipidemia and diabetes, which impairs the ability of insulin to transfer
energy from the bloodstream and using it in cells. In order to prevent or
improve conditions of common diseases, it is important to try and reduce
visceral fat levels to an acceptable level. People with high visceral fat
levels tend to have large stomachs. However, this is not always the case
and high visceral fat levels can lead to metabolic obesity. Metabolic
obesity (visceral obesity with normal weight) represents fat levels that are
higher than average, even if a person’s weight is at or below the standard
for their height.
What is Subcutaneous Fat?
Subcutaneous fat = fat below the skin
Subcutaneous fat not only accumulates around the stomach but also
around the upper arms, hips and thighs, and can cause a distortion of
the body’s proportions. Although not directly linked to increased risk
of disease, it is thought to increase pressure on the heart and other
complications. Subcutaneous fat is not displayed in this monitor, but is
included in the body fat percentage.
What is Skeletal Muscle?

(MRI image)
Muscle is divided into two types, muscle in internal organs, such as the heart, and skeletal muscle
attached to bones that is used to move the body. Skeletal muscle can be increased through exercise
and other activity. Increasing the ratio of skeletal muscle means that body can burn energy more
easily, which means that it is less likely to turn to fat, and makes it easier to lead an energetic lifestyle.
What is Resting Metabolism?
Regardless of your activity level, a minimum level of caloric intake is required to sustain the body’s
everyday functions. Known as the resting metabolism, this indicates how many calories you need to
ingest in order to provide enough energy for your body to function.
