Tanita Printouts from Clinic

I found this on the Tanita website and thought it might be helpful for those who want to know what some of the stuff means.

BMI - Body Mass Index is a height to weight ratio, and is calculated by the following formula: Weight (kg)/Height (m2)
Desirable Range 18.5 - 24.9


BMR - Basal Metabolic Rate represents the total energy expended by the body to maintain normal functions at rest such as respiration and circulation.

Impedance - Impedance reflects the body’s inherent resistance to an electrical current. Muscle acts as a conductor of the electrical current, adipose tissue acts as a resistor.

Fat% - Percentage of fat as a part of your total body weight.

Fat Mass - Total weight of fat mass (in kg, lb) in the body.

FFM (Fat Free Mass) - Fat Free Mass is comprised of muscle, bone, tissue, water, and all other fat free mass in the body.

TBW (Total Body Water) - Total Body Water is the amount of water (expressed as lb, kg, or st.lb) retained in the body. TBW is said to comprise between 50% - 70% of total body weight. Generally, men tend to have higher water weight than women due to a greater amount of muscle.

thats actually really helpful, broken down simply like that. The girl that weighed me in one week (granted she was new) couldnt explain it all to me.

As for impedance, I use Ohms at work to measure the impedance of the radio frequency connectors we design, always wondered what it had to do with our weight
