OMRON Healthcare launches new line of body composition monitors, digital weight scale devices

OMRON Healthcare, a global leader in the field of clinically proven, innovative medical equipment, is launching a new line of body composition monitors and digital weight scale devices to help Filipinos keep track of their overall weight and health, especially after the holiday season.

If you’re like most Filipinos, the recent Yuletide season was mostly likely filled with special moments around the dining table, enjoying delicious holiday meals with family and loved ones. With food being a central part of Filipino celebrations and salo-salo and handaan still pushed while keeping to health protocols, post-holiday thoughts include weight gain concerns.

Overindulgence in food and drinks and lack of exercise during the holidays can increase the risks of obesity, which is fast becoming a major health problem in the country. The Philippines currently has a moderate risk score in the national obesity risk scoring by the World Obesity Federation (WOF). A WOF report released in March 2021 also showed that adult obesity rates in the country experienced very rapid growth from 1995 to 2015 at 5.4 percent for men and 3.7 percent for women.

One good way to kick off 2022 and protect oneself from health concerns such as obesity is to maintain – or start – a healthy lifestyle and observe proper weight management. OMRON Healthcare, a global leader in the field of clinically proven, innovative medical equipment, is launching a new line of body composition monitors and digital weight scale devices to help Filipinos keep track of their overall weight and health, especially after the holiday season.

Better health with smarter health control

Body weight is not the only yardstick for a healthy body. Body mass index, body fat percentage and muscle mass percentage are also equally important to ensure one is healthy and fit.

OMRON’s New Body Composition Monitors HBF-255T and HBF-702T and Digital Weight Scale HN-300T2 make it easier than ever to keep track of these numbers for a healthier lifestyle. These new devices are designed to complement diets and exercise regimens, providing a range of indicators such as resting metabolism, body fat percentage, visceral fat level and body age for more effective weight management. 

The new body composition monitors — the HBF-702T and HBF-255T — are smart-sensing devices designed to provide a more comprehensive view of the user’s health. The HBF-702T features Full Body Sensing Technology to provide better understanding of the user’s body composition using an auto-recognition feature. Users can get accurate and reliable measurements within 11 seconds of stepping on the device. The HBF-255T can help anyone stay inspired to get in shape. Its Previous Value Display feature aids with weight progress tracking and Weight Subtraction Function, which also makes weighing of babies and children more convenient.

OMRON’s Digital Weight Scale HN-300T2 not only keeps track of the user’s weight but also monitors BMI trends and progress in relation to the user’s weight goal. It has a lightweight tempered glass for safety, four sensor accuracy technology and auto on/off. The auto filtering function allows the user to extract and display only a specific weight value from the data transferred by the scale through the OMRON Connect App.

The HBF-702T, HBF-255T and the HN-300T2 are ideal for those with specific weight loss goals and those who are looking to take control of their health. All three devices can conveniently be accessed through the OMRON Connect app, where users can note their personal health history and view progress from their latest activities.

OMRON’s new Body Composition Monitors HBF-255T and HBF 702T and Digital Weight Scale HN-300T2 will be available on OMRON’s official flagship Lazada and Shopee stores. Customers can avail of these health partners for holistic weight management starting February 1st.

Hearing from a policyowner who found a lifeline in insurance

For Cerila Espidillon, her insurance plan not only provided financial assistance but also served as a source of strength for her and her family, enabling them to confront the ordeal without worrying about the added burden of debt.

Life is full of uncertainties, and cancer is one of the toughest challenges families can face. Here, we share the story of one of our policyowners who found a lifeline in the form of insurance.

For Cerila Espidillon, her insurance plan not only provided financial assistance but also served as a source of strength for her and her family, enabling them to confront the ordeal without worrying about the added burden of debt.

Espidillon shares her story of resilience and PRU Love:

“I have been insured by Pru Life UK since 2013. I come from a poor family and saw people borrowing money when they got sick, and people who relied on their children to take care of them. I told my husband that I don’t want our kids to worry about us when we grow older. I knew I made the right decision when I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Valentine’s Day in 2022. Strangely, I didn’t worry and continued with my work here in Dubai. My biggest concern was my kids seeing me sick.

“My friend and agent, Peach, helped me process my claim. It was so fast. I didn’t need to follow up because not long after I gave all my documents, the claim was already in my account. The claim not only helped me pay my hospital bills without going into debt, but also made me feel at ease knowing I am financially covered. I felt the care that Pru Life UK has for its clients. Now I can focus on my recovery and my kids. Insurance policies offer peace of mind and financial protection, especially from unforeseen incidents. If we want a better life, we need to get insurance.”

Espidillon’s story is just one example of how crucial life insurance can be for families, offering peace of mind during difficult times. To keep families protected, Pru Life UK launched PRUHealth FamLove, a yearly-renewable protection plan that shares the critical illness coverage to up to four family members in one policy.
