Pool Cleaning

Aqua Products has introduced new intelligence for pool-cleaning robots that independently analyzes the size and shape of any pool. AquaSmart and Matrix Mapping allow robots to map out the most efficient cleaning course. This is done with an infrared sensor that transmits signals to the microprocessor brain to detect objects and level changes. Robots then focus on cleaning the pool floor, where the majority of debris resides. Contact: Aqua Products Inc., 25 Rutgers Avenue, Cedar Grove, NJ, 07009; phone: 1-800-845-4856; fax: 973- 857-8981;

Consumer Scales

Tanita has offered a new way for consumers to monitor their body water percentage from home. The UM-026 and the BF-592 measure weight, body fat and body water percentage. Body water percentage is measured using the same method as body fat testing, by using bioelectrical impedance (BIA). BIA sends a safe, low-level electrical signal through the body that is sent through the user's feet. The signal passes freely through the fluids found in muscle tissue and blood, but it has difficulty passing through fat tissue, which contains little water. The user's body water percentage is determined based on the signal's resistance, gender, height and weight.
