Body Composition Analyzer

Trainers and athletes understand that fitness is much more than how you look and how much you weigh. Quantifying where the muscle is going. Seeing if the loss in weight is from burning through fat, or insufficient hydration. Tracking where progress has been made, and where to focus your efforts. The fitness community has asked for precise tools and data to keep up with increasingly advanced needs, and Charder is proud to present the MA601 Body Composition Analyzer, designed to assist professionals in elevating program quality and progress analysis.

The MA601 provides the relevant measurement values and data that you need to bring your program to the next level. Boasting multiple measurement frequencies and sophisticated algorithms, Charder stands by our devices with clinical trials and over ten years of original peer-reviewed scientific research, for results you can trust.

Standard Result Sheet

Available on MA601

  • (1) Body Composition Analysis

    Reliable, non-invasive Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis makes it easier to conduct regular monitoring of Body Composition. The calculated estimated weights of the body's compositional elements can be compared with standard results for context.

  • (2) Muscle-Fat Analysis

    Measurement of weight is important, but incomplete without further analyzing the amount of muscle and fat in a client. Understanding skeletal muscle and body fat proportions can help trainers formulate muscle and fat control recommendations.

  • (3) Obesity Analysis

    The MA601 categorizes body fat ranges into those commonly seen for Underfat, Athlete, Normal, Overfat, and Obese populations. With more precise ranges, fat control goals and progress can be tracked more accurately. Visceral Fat Level is related to Abdominal Visceral Fat Area, and is used as an indicator for risk of obesity-related diseases.

  • (4) Segmental Analysis

    Measure muscle and fat more precisely with segmental analysis of the trunk, upper body, and lower body. Identify imbalances, and determine if segmental muscle is within normal range, tracking changes to better observe the effects of rehabilitation or training.

  • (5) Body Type Analysis

    The body type analysis chart combines BMI and Percent Body Fat to determine the subject's body type. Body composition changes needed to achieve ideal body type can be clearly determined using this clear and simple chart.

  • (6) Muscle Quality

    Track changes in quality, not just quantity! In elderly populations, muscle strength can decline much more rapidly than muscle mass. By evaluating muscle effectiveness through cellular estimation of grip strength health, professionals now have a more useful indicator that may provide early warning for fall risk.

  • (7) Body Composition History

    By selecting the same user ID prior to measurement, changes in body composition can be tracked automatically (Weight, Fat-Free Mass, Skeletal Muscle Mass, and Percent Body Fat).

  • (8) Fitness Parameters

    The MA601 provides multiple body composition output parameters of particular relevance for fitness, and includes various indexes used as early warning signs for malnutrition and sarcopenia. Make use of Phase Angle for evaluation of cellular health, and analyze health status in more detail.

  • (9) Health Score

    The Result Sheet provides normal ranges for a variety of output, as well as an overall health score that takes into account a combination of results.

  • (10) Control Guide

    The Control Guide calculates a recommended amount of muscle and fat control in order to reach an ideal, healthy body type. This can be used as a general reference for a "standard" body type, though subjects can of course choose to use their own goals and calculations instead.
