Tanita is a world-leader in providing scales for healthcare professionals. The company's success and expanding global presence is the result of superior technology, unique design, and high manufacturing standards that have earned ISO 9001 certification, CE marking, membership in the JQA (Japanese Quality Association), and FDA clearance.

Tanita's best-selling professional line of high-capacity scales include pediatric (baby, neonatal) scales, wheelchair scales, handrail scales, digital beam scales, NTEP scales, food/restaurant scales, and a collection of laboratory scales. Our scales provide insight into such indicators as weight loss, caloric intake, and diet and exercise. Some models feature stadiometers (height rods), EMR compatibility, Welch Allen compatibility, wireless output, and are NTEP (Legal-for-Trade) Certifiable.

Tanita's wide variety of US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved professional body composition analyzers provide a detailed full body and segmental body composition analysis - weight, impedance, body fat percentage, body fat mass, body mass index (BMI), fat free mass, estimated muscle mass, total body water, and basal metabolic rate (BMR) for the entire body by using Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) or Direct-Segmental Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (DSM-BIA) technology (two of the most thorough and reliable ways to measure body composition). All scales are built with Tanita's high standards, and many products feature a convenient carrying case, height rod, USB (Type B) & RS232 outputs, software, and a remote display.
