The Tanita RD-953 incorporates the very latest FDA cleared Multi Frequency bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) technology, the first consumer body composition monitor in the world to do so. Multi frequency testing provides an additional level of accuracy to the body composition analysis process by providing essential data of a person’s intracellular and extracellular status, and is generally only found on professional grade models. Analysis of the cellular data allows us to determine the quality of the muscle tissue, in addition to mass. A high score represents a higher density of muscle fiber, with less fat and connective tissue. A low score indicates the muscle fiber is thinner and fewer compared to other substances.
The advanced technology found within the Tanita RD-953 provides an in-depth analysis of 11 body composition readings. Measurements include: Weight, Body Fat, Muscle Mass, Muscle Quality Score, Physique Rating, Bone Mass, Visceral Fat, Daily Calorie Intake (DCI), Metabolic Age, Total Body Water, and BMI. No other consumer Bluetooth scale offers such a wide array of capability, making the Tanita RD-953 the world’s most accurate home-use body composition monitor. BIA is quick and non-invasive, and is one of the most thorough and reliable ways to measure body composition, clinically comparable to DXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) and hydrostatic (underwater) weighing.
The Tanita RD-953 uses radio wireless Bluetooth technology, monitoring the effectiveness of a weight loss or physical activity program has never been easier. Compatible with Healthy Edge Mobile (free download), so your smart phone will record, analyze, and graph your results. And the platform features a color coded LCD display to quickly analyze your results and let you know if you’re in the desired zones. The Tanita RD-953 has a weight capacity of 440 pounds, and operates for greater than 1 year on four AA batteries (included).
Individuals with an electronic medical implant such as a pacemaker should not use a scale that employs bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) as it passes a low-level electrical signal through the body which may interfere with the operation of the implant. Pregnant women should only use the weight function, other functions are not intended for use when pregnant.

Multi Frequency Technology
Multi frequency testing provides an additional level of accuracy to the body composition analysis process by providing essential data of a person’s intracellular and extracellular status.
Analysis of the cellular data allows the RD-953 to determine the quality of the muscle tissue, in addition to mass. Knowing muscle quality and muscle mass is essential for training analysis and monitoring injuries.
The RD-953 analyzes your data and provides a color coded judgement of your measurements. This analysis is based on over 20 years of Tanita clinical research, and descends from our professional models.

Someone mentioned "poor software" but I have yet to have a problem with it. The Bluetooth connection is awesome.
Great job Tanita !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Interface - I used to own an older Tanita model so having the blue/red/green lights indicate good / bad values was a plus. However, the third party app and the UI of the Tanita scale is just horrid. Hopefully an app exists that results in a better smartphone sync. This is where Withings shines. However, as noted above, the accuracy was a real problem so if you just need a simple weight scale, get a Withings model.
It's not a perfect product but there is room for improvement. With a better app, this scale can be marvelous. Do keep in mind that accurate body composition requires machines in the thousands of dollars but for a few hundred bucks, my money is on Tanita.
