There are many products that measure body fat percent, body composition, and lean muscle mass. Most use Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, in which an electrical signal is sent through the body to determine the percent of different kinds of tissues (each has a different conductance). These ratings can be affected by hydration, food intake and skin temperature, and there are still limits to their accuracy and effectiveness.
