CES 2022: Launching smart scales to monitor heart rhythms

Body Scan is capable of scanning the whole body, monitoring almost every health indicator by measuring the heart rate or the activity of the sweat glands.

At the International Consumer Electronics Show CES 2022, Withings – a French electronics company launched the Body Scan scale. In addition to measuring weight, Body Scan is also designed to track almost comprehensive health indicators, including heart rate, pulse age, and neurological activity assessment.

Body Scan has a tempered glass base with retractable handle, is equipped with four weight sensors and 14 ITP electrodes, plus four stainless steel electrodes in the handle for electrocardiogram analysis and body composition. The built-in battery has a one-year life and health readings are displayed on the 3.2-inch color LCD screen.

According to Withings, Body Scan can measure weight accurately. In addition, by using BIA – a method that uses small alternating current (AC) to pass through the human body, the scale will provide indicators of total body fat, percentage of water, and internal fat. organ, muscle mass, bone mass, and cellular water. It also promises to provide more detailed results for other body parts such as the torso, arms and legs.

Especially, Body Scan can monitor the activity of sweat glands in the feet and will give a daily assessment of the activity of the small nerves. In addition, it has the ability to determine the age of blood vessels through cardiovascular measurements to provide users with information about the condition of their arteries. For the electrocardiogram (ECG) function, Body Scan can detect arrhythmias using two electrodes placed on each side of the handle and one at the bottom of the scale. Withings is combining the fitness features of Body Scan with the ability to access clinical experts and coaches to achieve health goals through its fitness program.

Body Scan is expected to be released in the second half of 2022 if it is licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with a price of 299 USD (about 7 million VND).

Earlier, also at CES 2022, Movano launched the Movano Ring smart ring line that can measure all basic metrics including heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV), sleep monitoring, respiration, and more. temperature, blood oxygen level, steps taken and calories burned.
