BodySpex Scale

You may have access to a BodySpex Scale at your health club, corporate fitness center, school or other location. The BodySpex Scale offers two kinds of tests: a weight measurement test and a body fat percentage test that utilizes bioelectrical impedance analysis technology ("BIA"). Persons with an internal medical device, such as a pacemaker, should not use the BodySpex Scale in the body fat test mode. Please read our Cautions page.

Individuals with extremely high or low body fat percentage may not receive accurate body fat test results, as they fall outside the population for which this Scale was developed. BodySpex makes no guarantee as to the absolute accuracy of the data provided by any test.

Depending on the deployment arrangement with your host facility, full use of the BodySpex Scale may be free or require a subscription. When applicable, only one user per subscription is allowed to access restricted features or functions. Multiple users accessing restricted Scale functions or features via the same subscription is strictly prohibited and may result in expulsion(s) and forfeiture of subscription.

The BodySpex Scale is engineered to be durable in a public setting, however, some components are sensitive. Please use care when interacting with the Scale. Members who abuse or misuse the Scale or any Scale components may be expelled and forfeit any subscription.
