Withings unveils new smart body assessment scale and health improvement service

The Withings Body Comp and Health+ service.

Withings just announced a new smart body assessment scale and health improvement service at IFA 2022.

The Withings Body Comp is touted as the first scale to measure body fat, visceral fat, vascular age, and nerve health in one consumer device. Thanks to the novel sensors, exclusive algorithms, and patented electronics, the Withings Body Comp is able to measure weight, muscle mass, fat mass, water percentage, bone mass, BMI, visceral fat, standing heart rate, vascular age, nerve health with improved accuracy.

Vascular Age is based on Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV), which measures arterial stiffness as a key indicator of cardiac health. It will provide a score to indicate whether the usere is optimum, normal, or not optimum for his/her chronological age.

Nerve health is assessed via Withings' Nerve Health Score which is determined by monitoring the sweat glands in the feet. A low score is a sign of reduced sweat gland innervation, which is linked to a degeneration of small nerve fibres.

The Withings' Health+ is a health improvement service that unlocks additional features in the Health Mate app to offer a more comprehensive picture of the health to the user. It also offers six-week habit building modules to help the user achieve his/her health goal.

The Body Comp and Health+ will be available at Withings' website from 4 October at a bundled price of US$209.95. This includes a 12-mth subscription to Health+.
