Beurer BG 51 XXL Diagnostic Scale ( 5 Years Warranty )
Diagnostic scale with contemporary designThis person scale is equipped with a subtle dash design and has an extra large display on which you can easily read the measured values. The scale not only shows your weight, but can also show your body fat, fluid and muscle mass. In addition, the Beurer BG 13 can calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI). In general, a BMI between 20 and 25 is considered healthy. Is your BMI lower than 18.5? Then there is underweight, over 25 overweight and with a BMI of over 30 there is obesity. However, it must be borne in mind that this method of measurement is not watertight, for example a very muscular person can have a high BMI but not be overweight. You should therefore look at your physique to determine in which category you fall. How does an analysis scale work?The Beurer BG 13 is a glass scale that works with the Bio-electric Impedance Analysis. With this method, a weak current is sent through the body. By measuring the resistance, it can be determined how much the fat percentage is, et cetera. Because muscle tissue and water have a good electrical conductivity, they have a low resistance. Bone and adipose tissue, on the other hand, conduct less well and have a high resistance. The displayed values give an indication. So you can not attach medical conclusions to this. Tips when weighingFor a correct measurement of your weight it is important that you place the scale on a flat surface. In addition, you must take into account the following points:Do not use this scale if you have a pacemaker or are pregnantAlways stand in the middle of the scales and stand stillWeigh as much as possible at the same time (preferably in the morning, but always wait about 15 minutes so that the body can distribute the body fluid)Before you weigh, go to the toilet and weigh yourself without clothing to achieve similar resultsStand with bare feet on the scale. In the case of an analysis scale, you can best do this with slightly moistened soles. Dry feet conduct worse.
