Tanita Viscan measures visceral trunk fat in seconds
High levels of visceral and trunk fat are scientifically proven to be linked to heart disease, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. The process of measuring visceral fat has been difficult and expensive, particularly in large research studies and routine clinical practice.
Tanita Viscan directly measures the abdominal region and instantly displays readings for the following:
• Visceral fat level on a scale of 1-59 (0.5 graduation)
• Trunk fat percentage on a scale of 0.5-75% (0.1% graduation)
• Estimated waist circumference on a scale of 50-130cm (1cm graduation)
• Assessment of visceral fat level using a 6-step bar-graph display from standard to excessive
• Assessment of trunk fat percentage using a 9-step bar-graph display from low to high
Featuring an intelligent electrode belt which employs Tanita dual frequency BIA technology to perform measurements in under 30 seconds. This innovative analyser offers a specific mode for the measurement of visceral fat in individuals with a waist circumference greater than 130cm.
Viscan substantially reduces the risk of measurement errors compared to the traditional method of tape measurement of waist circumference. The combination of abdominal BIA and analysis of data obtained from the X-ray CT and DXA method (Double Energy X-ray Absorpitometry) allows for highly reliable statistical estimations.
Viscan provides fast, accurate and highly repeatable results and this user-friendly analyser is easy to set up and can be used with minimal training. This advanced measurement tool is ideally suited to use in health clubs, medical centres, weight management clinics and gyms and represents a significant step forward for visceral and trunk fat analysis.
