How do the Body Composition Scales work?
Safe, low-level electrical signals are passed through the body via footpads on the monitor platform. It is easy for the signal to flow through fluids in the muscle and other body tissues but meets resistance as it passes through body fat. This resistance is called impedance. The impedance readings are then entered into medically researched mathematical formulas to calculate your percentage body fat.
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries. Systolic pressure occurs when the heart contracts. Diastolic pressure occurs when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg). One’s natural blood pressure is represented by the fundamental pressure, which is measured first thing in the morning while one is still at rest and before eating.
