Withings is promoting its Body Scan in-home connected health station smart scale platform, with a launch planned later this year.

Las Vegas-based Withings’ Body Scan goes beyond weight management to offer a way for users to take proactive control over their health with segmental body composition, heart rate and vascular age monitoring, according to a news release. It also allows users to access coaching, clinical specialists and personalized, holistic plans in-app.

The company boasts that Body Scan is the winner of three CES 2022 Innovation Honoree Awards; the show is taking place this week.

Body Scan has a single tempered glass platform with four weight sensors and 14 ITO electrodes in the platform and four stainless steel electrodes in the retractable handle for 6-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and segmental body composition analysis. It also has a battery life lasting one year with a high-resolution 3.2″ LCD color screen displaying statistics.

The platform can provide precise weight measurements, measure overall body composition (whole-body fat, water percentage and more), and track sweat gland and small nerve activity. It can also deliver heart rate measurements, ECG recordings and vascular age determinations.

Withings’ Body Scan’s subscription service allows users to connect with medical specialists for advice and consultation while offering real-time data to clinical teams. The company expects Body Scan to be available in the second half of 2022, following CE mark and FDA approval.

“Withings created the connected health category back in 2009 and today is proud to be the number one selling smart scale manufacturer in the United States, helping millions of users manage their weight,” Withings CEO Mathieu Letombe said in the release. “With Body Scan, we will turn the morning weigh-in into a sophisticated home health check with access to holistic health data and personal health programs created by medical professionals.

“We will empower our users with the ability to take meaningful actions based on medical-grade data, adding a new dimension to ongoing lifestyle and chronic condition management through the ultimate in-home health experience.”
