Actofit SmartScale measures the following 15 different parameters of a human body.

  • Weight

Weight is one of the important signs of a person's health status.

  • BMI

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. A standardized ratio of weight to height used as a general indicator of health. Your BMI can be calculated by dividing your weight (in kilograms) by the square of your height (in meters). BMI = Weight (Kg) / Height (M) / Height (M)



BMR(Basal Metabolic Rate)

The daily minimum level of energy or amount of calories your body requires when at rest (including sleeping) in order to function effectively. Increasing muscle mass will speed up your basal metabolic rate (BMR). A person with a high BMR burns more calories at rest than a person with a low BMR.

About 70% of calories consumed every day are used for your basal metabolism. Increasing your muscle mass helps raise your BMR, which increases the number of calories you burn and helps to decrease body fat levels.

Your BMR measurement can be used as a minimum baseline for a diet program. Additional calories can be included depending on your activity level. The more active you are the more calories you burn and the more muscle you build, so you need to ensure you consume enough calories to keep your body fit and healthy.


  • Body Fat

Body fat serves a vital role in storing energy, maintaining body temperature and protecting internal organs. The energy, or calories, our body needs comes from what we eat and drink. Energy is burned through physical activity and general bodily functions. If you consume the same number of calories as you burn, all the calories are converted into energy. But if you consume more than you burn, excess calories are stored in fat cells. If this stored fat is not converted into energy later, it creates excess body fat. Although you need healthy body fat, too much fat can damage your long-term health. Reducing excess levels of body fat has been shown to directly reduce the risk of certain conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. Actofit Smart Scale can help you keep track of your body fat.





  • Visceral Fat

Visceral fat is found in the abdomen surrounding and protecting the vital organs. Even if your weight and body fat remains constant, as you get older the distribution of fat changes and is more likely to shift to the abdominal area. Ensuring you have a healthy level of visceral fat directly reduces the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and may delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Measuring your visceral fat with Actofit SmartScale helps you keep track of potential problems and test the effectiveness of your diet or training.




  • Subcutaneous Fat

Subcutaneous fat is a fat below the skin. Subcutaneous fat not only accumulates around the stomach but also around the upper arms, hips and thighs and can cause a distortion of the body's propositions. 


  • Muscle Mass

The predicted weight of muscle in your body.

Muscle mass includes the skeletal muscles, smooth muscles such as cardiac and digestive muscles and the water contained in these muscles. Muscles act as an engine in consuming energy. As your muscle mass increases, the rate at which you burn energy (calories) increases which accelerates your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and helps you reduce excess body fat levels and lose weight in a healthy way. If you are exercising hard your muscle mass will increase and may increase your total body weight too. That’s why it’s important to monitor your measurements regularly to see the impact of your training program on your muscle mass.


  • Skeletal Muscle

Refers to the amount of skeletal muscle mass in regards to the total body weight expressed as a percentage.

Skeletal muscle ratio (%) = {Skeletal muscle mass (kg) / Body weight (kg)} x 100


  • Body Water

Total Body Water is the total amount of fluid in the body expressed as a percentage of total weight.

Body water is an essential part of staying healthy. Over half the body consists of water. It regulates body temperature and helps eliminate waste. You lose water continuously through urine, sweat and breathing, so it’s important to keep replacing it.

The amount of fluid needed every day varies from person to person and is affected by climatic conditions and how much physical activity you undertake. Being well hydrated helps concentration levels, sports performance and general wellbeing.

Experts recommend that you should drink at least two liters of fluid each day, preferably water or other low calorie drinks. If you are training, it’s important to increase your fluid intake to ensure peak performance at all times.

The average TBW% ranges for a healthy person for Male 50 to 65%

Female 45 to 60%






  • Protein

Protein plays a vital role in the body, building and maintaining muscles, organs and other tissues.


  • Bone Mass

It is Bone tissue(Bone Mineral(Ca,P and so in) and Bone Matrix(ossein,protein,inorganic and so on)per unit volume.)

The predicted weight of bone mineral in your body. While your bone mass is unlikely to undergo noticeable changes in the short term, it’s important to maintain healthy bones by having a balanced diet rich in calcium and by doing plenty of weight-bearing exercise. You should track your bone mass over time and look for any long term changes.





  • Physique

Assesses muscle and body fat levels and rates the result as one of nine body types.

As your activity level changes, the balance of body fat and muscle mass will gradually change, which in affects your overall physique. The physique rating which our Body Composition Monitors provide gives you insight in what body type you currently have.



Physique Rating 1: Hidden Obese

Hidden Obese means that the body has a high percentage of fat and a low level of muscle mass. Even though you might look like average from the outside, your fat levels are too high. This could lead to obesity, which could lead to serious health problems. By eating healthier and increasing your physical activity you should be able to lower your fat levels.


Physique Rating 2: Obese

Obese means that you have a high fat percentage and a standard level of muscle mass. People with an obese physique rating need to be careful. Obesity can lead to serious health problems. Consult a professional to help you when you think you might be obese.


Physique Rating 3: Solidly-built

This means that you have a high body fat percentage and a high muscle mass level. Even though you might look big on the outside, you actually have a lot of muscle mass underneath.


Physique Rating 4: Under exercised

Under exercised means that you have an average amount of body fat and a low muscle mass level. You should start gaining muscle mass by working out regularly.


Physique Rating 5: Standard

A standard body type means that you have average levels of both body fat and muscle mass. People with a standard body type can progress a lot when they start working out.


Physique Rating 6: Standard Muscular

This means that you have an average amount of fat percentage and have a high muscle mass level. This is a healthy Physique rating, which you can be proud of. This is a rating which some athletes have.


Physique Rating 7: Thin

This means that you have a low amount of body fat and a low muscle mass level. Being too thin could lead to serious health issues, however being a little thin are okay.


Physique Rating 8: Thin and Muscular

This means that you have a low amount of body fat and a standard level off muscle mass. A bikini body! Watch out people can be very jealous!


Physique Rating 9: Very Muscular

Very muscular people have a low amount of body fat and a high level off muscle mass


  • Fat Free weight

Fat-free mass, also known as lean body mass refers to all of your body components except fat. It includes your body's water, bone, organs and muscle content. However, when it comes to weight management and body composition, fat-free mass refers primarily to muscle mass.


  • Metabolic Age

Compares your BMR to an average for your age group. This is calculated by comparing your basal metabolic rate (BMR) to the BMR average of your chronological age group. If your metabolic age is higher than your actual age, it’s an indication that you need to improve your metabolic rate. Increased exercise will build healthy muscle tissue, which in turn will improve your metabolic age. Stay on track by monitoring regularly.


  •  Health score 


 health score is calculated by assessment of all body parameters . The higher health score is an indication of good physical health.
