Beurer BG21 Diagnostic Bathroom Scales
The Beurer BG21 is a superbly designed diagnostic scale with a printed “see-through” glass platform. The large multifunction LCD display with a digit height of 25mm enables four different values to be read simultaneously. The brushed stainless steel electrodes determine your body weight, body fat, body water, muscle ratio, bone mass, BMI and AMR/BMR. The BG21 is intended for weighing and providing a diagnosis of your personal fitness data. These important values are used to interpret and improve your general health and wellbeing.
BF – Calculation of your body fat percentage.
Body Water – Optimum water intake is essential for the human body to function properly. This is especially important after physical exercise.
Muscle Ratio - Muscle tissue is heavier than fatty tissue. If you exercise in addition to dieting, you may find that you gain weight despite eating less. This is because although you are burning fat you are also building muscle mass. Your Beurer diagnostic scale will show that you are on the right path.
Bone Mass – Bones are subject to natural growth, shrinking and ageing processes. Bone mass reaches its peak at the age of 30-40 in both men and women. As we age our bone mass then begins to reduce. Healthy eating (e.g. calcium) and physical exercise can combat the shrinkage.
BMI - The body mass index is a measurement of human body fat based on an individual's weight and height.
BMR Indication - The basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the amount of energy required by the body at complete rest to maintain its basic functions (e.g. while lying in bed for 24 hours). This value largely depends on weight, height and age. It is displayed on the Beurer diagnostic scale in kcal/day units using the scientifically recognized Harris-Benedict formula. Your body requires this amount of energy in any case and it must be reintroduced into your body in the form of nutrition. If you take on less energy over the longer term, this can be harmful to your health.
AMR Indication - The active metabolic rate (AMR) is the amount of energy required daily by the body in its active state. The energy consumption of a human being rises with increasing physical activity and is measured on the Beurer diagnostic scale in relation to the degree of activity entered (1– 5). To maintain your existing weight, the amount of energy used must be reintroduced into the body in the form of food and drink. If less energy is introduced than is used over a longer period of time, your body will obtain the difference largely from the amount of fat stored and your weight will reduce. If, on the other hand, over a longer period of time more energy is introduced than the total active metabolic rate (AMR) calculated, your body will be unable to burn off the excess energy, and the excess will be stored in the body as fat and your weight will increase.
The Beurer BG21 Glass diagnostic scale also features the following functions: Athlete mode with 5 activity levels, 10 separate user memories, overload indication, auto power off, tap-on technology and indication of kg, pounds and stones.
