After building and maintaining a highly successful business manufacturing bathroom scales, Tanita focused its developmental research on the links between weight and health. Following extensive research to establish the relationship between excess body fat, heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers; Tanita introduced the world’s first Integrated Body Fat Scale to medical research professionals in 1992. Using this same technology, Tanita then developed the world’s first Body Fat Monitor Scale for personal use in 1994.
Tanita continues to lead the way in the scale category for both its personal and professional models. Recent innovations include being the first to market with ‘segmental body composition analysis’ - differentiating between fat and muscle in each limb - and an impressive array of radio wireless products that employ ANT+, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi protocols for remote monitoring and trend analysis.
