Maltron Body Fat Analyser - Single Frequency Bioelectrical impedance

For many years Maltron BF-906 Body Fat Analyser has been used extensively by General Practitioner (Doctor), Obesity clinics, Sports scientists, health and sports centres, medics, Air, Navy and Arm forces, personal trainers and many others in the assessment of nutritional status and hydration monitoring.

Maltron was the first and the only company to offer products calibrated for children, adults, older population, including obese and lean population. Also included in this calibration are selectable categories for Sports, Athletes and ethnicity. Maltron is today recognised as the world’s only and leading manufacturer to offer affordable high precision tetrapolar Bio-electrical impedance analysers.

A professional tool for professional people the BF-906 is an indispensable measuring tool offering accuracy, repeatability, ease of use, affordability for those wanting detailed information of one’s health.

Maltron, known for offering value for money has included its latest windows XP - Vista based software. The software includes password accessibility with image identification data base allowing you to perform detailed analysis.
Users have benefited from Maltron expertises and knowledge in the field of bioelectrical impedance research, design, development and manufacturing.

By undertaking detailed research and using the latest cutting edge technology when developing body composition monitors has enabled Maltron to gain considerable expertise which has translated into the development of Maltron products.

How Does it Measure?

Maltron BF-906 uses the well established principal of tetrapolar Bio-electrical impedance is a scientific word used to describe our body's ability to resist (slow down) electricity as it flows through us offering a totally non-invasive assessment.

Flow of electrical signals are measured as they pass through Fat, Lean tissue and water, each resisting the flow of electrical signals at different rates giving us a highly reliable and accurate measure of the amounts of each of these components.

The method uses a 4 electrode technique. 

2 placed on the hand and 2 on the foot On entering all the required parameters and resting in a supine position with hands and legs slightly apart, the Maltron BF-906 is activated.The processing power of the BF-906 uses the input data along with the measured body impedance which is then applied to a data base of algorithms to perform whole body analysis.

The following parameters are then displayed the within seconds of commencing the testing:

  • Body Fat %
  • Body Fat Weight
  • Target Body Fat (min/max)
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) (Kilo-Calories) (Resting)
