Singapore, 10 April 2023 – Actxa, Singapore's deep tech company leveraging artificial intelligence to create preventive healthcare solutions, has launched the Sense 2 Smart Scale ("Sense 2"), a professional grade segmental body composition analyser.
Building on the success of its first-generation Sense smart scale, Sense 2 is introduced with enhanced accuracy and more customised insights to provide segmental composition analysis reports to help individuals improve their health and fitness.
From 2019 to 2020, 20.7% of Singaporeans were in the high-risk Body Mass Index category for the Asian population and about one in 10 Singaporeans (10.5%) aged 18 to 74 years old were obese¹ as compared to 8.6% in 2017². Segmental analysis has been proven to be a valuable tool in monitoring disease progression and nutritional status in individuals with chronic injury or disease³.
Beyond assessing up to 11 essential body measurements, Sense 2 provides users with holistic body composition analysis reports with more than 20 body composition indicators, including weight, body fat percentage, visceral fat level, muscle mass percentage, bone mass and total body water. It also trends up to the last ten measurements, allowing users to monitor and track their weight, muscle mass and percentage body fat (PBF) changes.
Whether you are looking to lose weight for better health, attain fitness goals, sustain your current form, or get an insight into your body, Sense 2 is your perfect choice with its clear and comprehensive view of positive or negative lifestyle information. You can see which body composition relates to your fitness and health progress – the body fat mass or a muscle build-up, and then restructure your lifestyle habits to achieve your desired goals.
Designed to cater to all ages and lifestyles, Sense 2 can support multiple users, allowing families to achieve their health goals together. The smart scale is especially useful for families with a history of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity, as family members can keep close tabs on their weight and body composition in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
For users enrolled in Journey with Wellness, a corporate wellness programme curated by Actxa Wellness, a subsidiary of Actxa, Actxa Sense 2 Smart Scale is explicitly designed to support you in this wellness journey.
Paired seamlessly with the Actxa mobile app via Bluetooth, the Sense 2 automatically syncs all measurements to the app, allowing users to monitor and track their progress easily through the body analysis report.
In just one step, you can make more informed decisions to achieve your health and fitness goals faster and more efficiently. Most importantly, health consciousness and being proactive about health are critical to preventing or delaying chronic disease onset.
The accurate readings of the analysis report are obtained through dual-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology to provide a more precise body composition analysis than other scales using a single frequency. The technology is painless and safe, with a low-level electrical current sent through your body to analyse your body composition. Sense 2 also uses eight tactile electrodes to distinguish and measure a user's body in five segments (arms, trunk and legs) to deliver a more in-depth analysis report.
Marcus Soo, Actxa's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Preventive health is a cornerstone in ensuring a healthier and better quality of life. It is also an important shift in Singapore's healthcare ecosystem.
To support the nation's Healthier SG vision of promoting preventive care, we developed the Sense 2 as an affordable, easy-to-use and dependable healthy lifestyle companion to help everyone from all walks of life to monitor and better understand their bodies."
