Should I use the Body Segment if I wear a pacemaker?
No, you should not use the Body Segment if you wear a pacemaker or other internal medical device. The Body Segment circulates a small electrical signal in your body to perform some of its measurements (such as fat mass), which may interfere with a pacemaker or other medical device.
Note: If you already own the Body Segment and wish to keep it, you can use it as long as you disable impedance-based measurement capability. You can do so from the Withings App.
Should I use the Body Segment if I have a stent?
Stents will not affect the measurement and do not pose a risk to the use of the Body Segment BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis).
Should I use the scale if I have a metal implant?
As this has not been tested, we recommend that you consult with your doctor before using the scale if you have an intramedullary rod or other metallic implant in your body, especially if it is located in the lower limbs.
Should I use my scale while I am pregnant?
The Body Segment has not been tested and/or validated for usage during pregnancy. Due to its updated technology related to the usage of limited electric currents and for precautionary purposes, we recommend that you disable impedance-based measurement capability. You can do so from the Withings App.
Disabling impedance-based features from the Withings App:
- Open the Withings App.
- Tap Devices.
- Tap Body Segment.
- Deselect Impedance Technology.
Note: When you deactivate the fat mass measurement, it is deactivated for all the users of all accounts that are linked to the scale.
