ULTIMATE ACCURACY This Salter Ultimate Accuracy Scale features 50g increments
for precise weight management.
HOW DOES THIS SALTER SCALE WORK? This Salter scale uses BIA (Bio Impedance
Analysis) technology which passes a tiny electrical impulse through the body to
determine fat from lean tissue, the electrical impulse cannot be felt and is perfectly
safe. Contact with the body is made via stainless steel pads on the platform of the
scale. This method simultaneously calculates your personal weight, body fat, total
body water, BMI, Basal Metabolic Rate and muscle mass, giving you a more accurate
reading of your overall health and fitness. This scale will also display weight, body
fat and total body water for children and young adults aged 6-17 years. Muscle
mass, BMI and BMR are not shown for this age range.
This scale stores the personal data of up to 12 users. As well as being an analyser
scale, this scale can be used as a conventional scale.
NEW FEATURE! This scale features our convenient step-on operation. Once
initialised the scale can be operated by simply stepping straight on the platform – no
more waiting!

7. Your weight will be displayed followed by your body fat percentage, total body
water percentage, muscle mass percentage, BMI and Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR).
The human body is made up of, amongst other things, a percentage of fat. This is
vital for a healthy, functioning body - it cushions joints and protects vital organs,
helps regulate body temperature, stores vitamins and helps the body sustain itself
when food is scarce. However, too much body fat or indeed too little body fat can
be damaging to your health. It is dicult to gauge how much body fat we have in
our bodies simply by looking at ourselves in the mirror. This is why it is important
to measure and monitor your body fat percentage. Body fat percentage gives you a
better measure of fitness than weight alone – the composition of your weight loss
could mean you are losing muscle mass rather than fat - you could still have a high
percentage of fat even when a scale indicates ‘normal weight’.
