Why should we use analyser scales?
In order to measure our body statistics, Salter scales use a method called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, sending a small electrical impulse around the body to determine body fat and water. One of the most important components of body weight is your body water as it makes up half of your total weight and plays a vital part in regulating body temperature. BMI helps us classify obesity and those who are underweight , BMR is an estimate of the energy expended by the body. Both measurements are important for our general health, helping us tailor our diet and fitness regime.
