A smart device is an electronic gadget that can operate somewhat interactively and independently and is typically connected to other gadgets or networks via various wireless protocols. Smart scales don’t just measure weight; they also measure other body composition measurements.
They frequently employ bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), a non-invasive method that assesses body composition by passing a small electrical current across the body. The three main system environments for smart devices are the physical world, human-centred settings, and distributed computing environments.
Smart devices can be built to support a variety of form factors, a range of ubiquitous computing capabilities, and to be utilised in these contexts. Smart houses are those that have sensors, some sort of detection equipment, appliances, and a database to control them.
The Global Smart Scale Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The Body Scan, a new smart scale from Withings that can track a variety of health-related parameters, was just introduced. It may evaluate nerve activity and heart rhythm using a 6-lead ECG and monitors segmental body composition, weight, heart rate, and vascular age.
Body Scan has a retractable handle and tempered glass platform. It has 14 ITP electrodes and four stainless steel electrodes in the handle for the body composition analysis and ECG capabilities.
It also has four weight sensors. Health measures are shown on a 3.2-inch colour LCD screen, and an internal battery lasts for a year before needing to be recharged.
According to Withings, the Body Scan scale can accurately measure weight in addition to measuring overall body composition using multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis, which can give readings on body fat percentage, water content, visceral fat, muscle mass, bone mass, and extracellular and intracellular water.
The torso, arms, and legs are among the bodily components for which it can produce readings. The Body Scan can monitor sweat gland activity in the feet, provide a daily evaluation of tiny nerve activity, and use cardiovascular measures to calculate vascular age to give users a sense of their arterial health.
Body Scan’s ECG function uses two electrodes on either side of the handle and one in the middle to identify arrhythmias. Two electrodes on each side of the handle and one in the base of the scale are used by Body Scan’s ECG feature to detect arrhythmias.
To help people realise their health objectives through the Withings health and wellness programmes, Withings is combining the Body Scan’s health monitoring features with access to coaching, clinical specialists, and holistic plans. A three-month complimentary subscription is also offered.
