More info

The MT108 body scale is a new design, based on the earlier Belle Echell model. It focussed on a much more modern style, whilst positioning itself perfectly within Makino Trading brand. The new design is a modified and improved version the previous product. Studio17 analysed the original version and looked at how it could be improved, aesthetically and functionally.

The product had to be compact, easy to use, comfortable to stand on and be a cohesive design when in use and not. Studio17 also looked at how an additional handle detail could be built into the design. This allowed for easier transportation of the product whenever moved. The product measures both the weight and body composition content via its aluminium electrodes. These pass a minute electrical current through bare feet, using the speed the current passes through to measure the amount of conductive muscle tissue, and less conductive fat tissue.

The body scale obviously has to function under weight, so its strength and durability were considered. Size and storage of the scales were also taken into account, as space saving solutions are favoured in Japan.

The surfacing of the scale gave the product a softer feel, whilst retaining a very modern aesthetic. The use of colour and material finish was also taken into consideration, giving the product a more premium feel and look. The handle design was carefully considered to ensure it fit in with the scales design.

A modern new design with integrated composition analysing electrodes and carry handle. Available in 3 colours, the scales will be available in 2016 throughout Japan.
