Full body sensing is more accurate than measuring with feet alone. With this Body Composition Monitor and Scale, you’ll get a comprehensive understanding of your body composition to help you reach your fitness goals. The HBF-514C Body Composition Monitor measures seven fitness indicators including body fat percentage, body mass index (BMI), skeletal muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, body age and body weight. This Omron body composition monitor includes a four person memory profile for the whole family and 90 days of memory to keep a 3 month record of your progress. The HBF-516B is also suitable for adults up to 330 pounds and 6.5 feet tall.

Full Body Sensing
Full Body Sensing provides a comprehensive understanding of your body composition to help you reach and/or maintain your fitness goals. Unlike other body composition monitors that rely on foot-to-foot measurements, Omron’s monitor measures the whole body (arm to foot) which provides a clinically-proven accurate profile.
Omron’s algorithm focuses on the Bioelectrical Impedance Method as well as height, weight, age and gender.
Bioelectrical Impedance Method
The Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale estimates the body fat percentage by the Bioelectrical Impedance Method. Muscles, blood, bones and body tissues with high water content conduct electricity easily. On the other hand, body fat does not store much water, therefore has little electric conductivity. The Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale sends an extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500 µA through your body to determine the amount of water in each tissue. You will not notice or feel the electrical current.
The ratios of the water in your upper and lower body change throughout the day – as gravity pulls more water into your lower extremities. This means the electrical impedance of the body also varies – if more water is in your legs, other monitors such as foot-to-foot may show incorrect body fat readings. The Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale takes measurements from both hands and feet – which reduces the influence water movement makes on your body composition results.
There are certain conditions when significant differences may occur between the estimated and the actual body fat values. These differences may be related to changing ratios of body fluid and/or body composition. The body fat percentage measured by this unit may significantly differ from the actual body fat percentage in the following situations:
- Children in growth stage
- Women who are pregnant
- Elderly people
- Post-menopausal women
- People with a fever
- People who having swelling
- Body builders or professional athletes
- Patients undergoing dialysis
- Patients with osteoporosis who have very low bone density
