Pre-Cautions and Warnings

Our hardware and software system includes the BodySpex Scale and this website ("System"). Please read these Pre-Cautions and Warnings prior to using our System. Additional information regarding some of these topics may be found in our Terms of Service agreement.

BodySpex Scale

BodySpex utilizes a Tanita Corporation® body composition analysis unit in its Scale. When taking a test in the body fat test mode, this scale sends a weak electrical current through your body. Individuals who have a pacemaker or other internal medical devices should not use the BodySpex Scale in the body fat testing mode.

This device is used with bare feet. Clean the weighing platform before each use. To reduce risk of injury or malfunction, always step onto the weighing platform slowly.

Weight and Body Fat Percentage Targets

Attempting to achieve an extremely low body weight or body fat percentage can have serious health risks. You are strongly advised to consult your health professional before establishing body weight or body fat percentage targets.

Test Results and Data Feedback

Individuals with extremely high or low body fat percentages may not receive accurate body fat test results on our Scale, as they fall outside the population for which this System was developed.

Daily Positions, Rankings, graphs, charts, and other graphical and textual interpretations of data ("BodySpex Data") are provided as motivational and inspirational feedback only. BodySpex Data and Scale results do not provide an absolute gauge of health and should interpreted by a licensed health professional.

BodySpex does not dispense medical advice. Do not misinterpret data and/or data comparison as medical advice. Seek the advice of your health professional for all medical questions.

Comparison of health and fitness data among individuals can be misleading. No one should interpret any information obtained on this Site or through our System as a criticism of personal worth.
