Abstract
A method for the elimination of judgment in determining human weight losses is described. A mercury switch, mounted on the scale beam, is used to adjust the content of a counterweight in the form of a water reservoir through a solenoid valve. The difference in volume of water in the before and after exercise situations is a measure of the subject's water loss.
