The history of Tanita
Founded in 1923 in Tokyo (Japan), Tanita was set up with the principal objective of providing the market with technology which would make health monitoring much easier. Based on medical evidence which relates excess body fat with cardiac diseases such as diabetes and certain kinds of cancer, in 1992 the company introduced the first scales with an incorporated body fat monitor in the professional market for medical research. In 1994, and with the same technology as was used in the professional scales, they invented the first body fat monitor for domestic use.
Since then, Tanita has earned the prestige of the scientific world for being the company which has made the most investment in this field. This prestige and the excellent quality of the products in its range, which offer unparalleled precision, innovation and durability, guarantee the company the unshakeable trust of its consumers throughout the world.
