How to Use the Omron Body Fat Analyzer

Video



Transcript


okay folks let’s show you how to use the
new body fat composition analyzer that
we’re going to be using in the clinics
instead of the BCA here’s what the unit
looks like is a completely
self-contained unit to start what you do
is you turn it on by pushing the on-off
button and when you do that you’ll see
down in the lower corner here it says
guest that’s what you want to use
because we’re going to be using a guest
setting because we’re not going to be
saving any data for any individuals
so you hit set to choose that setting
next you’re going to see it says normal
we bring that in closer here okay see it
says normal as opposed to athlete so if
we go down you see it says athlete all
of our dieters are going to be normal so
you hit the set button again okay then
you manually enter in the person’s
height and you use your up or down
button and these will go in half-inch
increments and in quarter inch
increments so we’ll set it for me at
five nine okay then you hit set then you
have to manually enter their weight so
we’ll enter mine like that then you hit
set then you enter the age set and then
you enter male or female so you either
go up or down either way just cycles
back and forth and hit set once you have
all the information entered now you’re
ready and you see it says right here
ready you’re ready to take a measurement
the proper way for them to hold this is
the middle finger goes behind the groove
on the backside here see on the backside
there are these little grooves that’s
where the middle finger goes so it’ll be
like this on either side if we flip it
over
the thumbs will sit on top of the unit
like this they don’t go down here they
don’t wrap around the back just like
this and they hold it out in front of
them at 90 degrees just like our old BCA
and then you would hit the start button
and you see it’s starting to take a
measurement you see the bars down at the
bottom going
and it gives you the readout it will
give you the percentage body fat you see
here it’s 18.3% and it will also
calculate the BMI and you can see my BMI
is twenty eight point one record that
information and when you’re done you
just turn it off next time a dieter
comes in you do the same thing choose
guest will bring this a little closer so
you can see okay and you choose normal
just keep hitting the set button and
then you adjust the height up or down
hit set enter the weight if you hold
your thumb down it will scroll rapidly
hit set change the age hit set choose
male or female by toggling up or down
hit set and you’re ready to go
thumbs go on top okay push the start
button and you’ll see the bar is going
down below just like with our BCA they
shouldn’t have a death grip on this and
as soon as it’s done you see okay that’s
all there is to it one important point
about this particular unit it does not
measure hydration status so that’s one
metric that we are no longer going to be
tracking but for the savings and the
cost savings in the ease of use this is
the way we’re going to be going okay
thanks folks

BMI Machine Review

A BMI machine is a great way for a child to lose weight, but there are some risks associated with it. If you want to use a body mass index machine to lose weight, there are some things you should know.

There are two types of BMI machines, and they differ from each other in how they work. One is an electronic machine, the other is a standard scale.

An electronic machine is a more effective way for a child’s weight to be accurately recorded. With the traditional scale, the user needs to weigh the child many times, or take a reading out of the machine every time the child gets tired. The reason why many people avoid using a body mass index machine is because they do not want to take an electronic reading. With an electronic machine, the user does not have to weigh the child several times, they can get an exact reading each time.

Some parents also worry about the amount of money they are spending on using a BMI machine. The problem is, with a machine, a child is not weighing anything. The machine will not tell the child that he/she is not getting the amount of food or drinks he/she is supposed to have. This is why a BMI machine should not be used as an excuse for not paying attention to the child. If a parent wants to buy a machine, they can go online and find a number of websites that offer this type of machine at reasonable prices.

The other issue that a parent should be concerned with is the fact that a child’s weight is not being correctly recorded. The weight of a child will be the most important thing that a parent can monitor when trying to lose weight.

Once a child’s weight is found, the parent should know exactly what they can expect from the child. If a child does not lose weight, they may need to see the doctor. Knowing what can happen if a child does not lose weight can help parents monitor the weight of their child so that they can ensure that they are giving their child the nutrition he/she needs.

If a child is being given the right nutrition, the parent should ensure that the child’s diet includes a balanced diet. This is why it is important to know what foods a child should eat, and how many servings a child should have. Knowing this information will make it easier for the child to monitor his/her weight and help the parent to monitor how well the child is doing in terms of nutrition.

Many parents are concerned about using a BMI machine, but it is important to look at the benefits of using one. There are benefits to both a traditional scale and to an electronic machine. The choice of which one to use for weight loss is up to the parent and the child.

    This is an excellent package for most people who want to take a reasonably accurate body fat measurement at home. The caliper is really light and not as accurate as I would like it to be. When attempting to take a measurement, the calipers flex significantly, and the stop tab misses its guide if you are not careful. I don’t think the measurements are as accurate as I’d like them to be because of the flex in the caliper handle. I can perform a seven-point measurement test three times and get different results each time.

    The contents of the package are adequate. The calipers are a little difficult to use because it’s difficult to tell when they “click” as defined in the directions. In any case, whether you use the “click” or not, you’ll have a clear idea of how much body fat you’re carrying. If you’re interested in that, you’re on the right track because you already suspect it may be too much. The easy part is determining your status. Good luck to all on their journey to better health.

    I had my body fat measured using the caliper system and compared the results. The Omron fat loss monitor calculated my body fat percentage around 3% higher than the hands-on caliper process, so accuracy might be slightly off.

    However, I believe this is an excellent method for comparing the changes detected by this monitor. I still weigh myself first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. According to the pamphlet, hydration levels can affect measurement precision, so I try to remain consistent.

    The monitor has provided another way for me to track my weight fluctuations and, to a lesser extent, calculate my fat loss. It’s been exciting to watch my body fat percentage decrease over time.
