What do the measurement values mean?

Weight (precision 0.5%, range 5-180 Kg)

Overall estimate of body mass.

ATENEA FIT 3 can show you weight in kilograms or pounds.

 

Related parameters:

Weight control - Shows the difference between the current weight and the ideal weight.

 

 

Fat (%) (precision 0.1%, range 5%-75%)

The percentage of fat indicates the percentage of fat that you have in the body with respect to your total weight. Obesity is determined by fat, not weight. Fat (in small amounts) is not only a source of energy for activities, but also plays an important role in maintaining body temperature, reducing external shocks, moisturising the skin, maintaining a smooth and slim body, and maintaining adequate hormone secretion. Obese people have an excessive amount of fat.

Excess fat is one of the causes of hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to maintaining an adequate percentage of fat from a young age.

 

Parameters related to the percentage of fat:
Fat mass (Kg) - Body fat weight.

Lean body weight (Kg) - Body weight after subtracting fat weight.

 Body fat index - It is a body fat percentage score.

Level of obesity - Indicates the difference between the actual weight and the ideal weight. It is an indicator of obesity.

 

 

Water: Moisture percentage (precision 0.1%, range 35%~75%

Body water is the percentage of total body fluid in the body. Maintaining a healthy ratio of water ensures that the body functions efficiently and reduces the risk of developing related health problems.
Body water refers to blood, lymphatic fluid, extracellular fluid, intracellular fluid, etc., that contain water in the body. Therefore, even if you drink a litre of water before weighing yourself, the percentage of water is very likely not to change.

 

 

Muscle: muscle mass (Kg) (precision 0.1Kg, range 5kg~120kg)

Muscle is a tissue that maintains body temperature, moves it, produces energy and plays a very important role in a person's health. The muscle content in the human body is made up of skeletal muscle (those that we consciously contract, such as the biceps), smooth muscle (of internal organs, such as the intestines), and cardiac muscle (that of the heart).

 

 

Bone: Bone mass (precision 0.1kg, range 0.5kg-6kg)
Bone mass indicates the total amount of bone in the body, i.e. the level of bone minerals such as calcium. Bone density can be estimated from the weight of bone minerals.

 

 

BMR: Basal Metabolism (precision : standard 500~5000)
This is the energy we use for basic functions (breathing, heartbeat, maintaining body temperature, etc.). That is, the minimum amount of energy needed to survive. Including the consumption of activity of the respiratory system, circulatory system, nervous system, liver and other organs in a calm state of the body and mind.
The more muscle, the higher the metabolic value (depending on the formula, the result may vary). 

 

BMI: Body Mass Index (precision 1, range 10-90)
An index used by international organizations to measure human obesity. BMI does not directly measure body fat content, but studies have shown that it correlates with body fat content (according to standards published by the WHO).

BMI = weight (kg)/ [height (m)]2

 

 

Visceral Fat (precision 1, range 1~50)
The level of visceral fat reflects the degree of accumulation of abdominal visceral fat. Maintaining a standard visceral fat index can greatly reduce the risk of heart disease, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia.

 

 

Body age: (precision 1' range 6~99)
Body age is based on the average human basal metabolic reference value, based on age trending from Holtek's own research. Basically, the basal metabolism gradually decreases with age. Those with a lot of muscle mass and a high basal metabolism have a younger body. For example, if the actual age is 40 years old, but the muscle mass and basal metabolism are equal to the same reference metabolism of someone who is 20 years old, we can say that her body age is 20 years old.

 

 

Protein: (Precision 0.1%, range 2%~30%)
Protein level standards. Lack of protein can cause decreased immunity, muscle weakness and anaemia. Follow a proper diet to maintain an adequate protein level.

 

 

Ideal weight (precision of 1 kg)

According to the international formula, the calculation for the ideal weight is as follows:
Men: (Height cm-80)x0.7=Ideal weight
Women: (Height cm-70)x0.6=Ideal weight

 

 

Body score (precision of 1, 1-100)
According to the results of various body composition parameters, the human body score is calculated comprehensively. The higher the score is, the healthier the body will be.

In very muscular people, the value could exceed 100.

 

 

Body type

The body type is categorised based on muscle mass and body fat.

A fat percentage of less than 30% in women and 20% in men is an adequate value.

 

Skinny - You have very little fat and muscle.

Slim - You have very little muscle and an adequate amount of fat.

Invisible Obesity - Although it may not look like it, you have a lot of fat and little muscle.

Lean - You have very little fat and some muscle.

Defined- You have very little fat and a defined amount of muscle.

Healthy - You have the right amount of fat and muscle.

Muscular - You have very little fat and a lot of muscle.

Overweight - Your physiological parameters are a bit high, check your percentage of fat and muscle and take appropriate measures.

Obese - Your physiological parameters are high, check your percentage of fat and muscle and take appropriate measures.
