seca - Empowering Patients to Initiate Weight Discussion
Date:3/28/2013

HAMBURG, Germany, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today in the United States nearly 127 million American adults and 25 million children/teens are overweight or obese. Alarmingly, only one-third of doctors are discussing weight with their patients. With many doctors pressed for time and the awkwardness of initiating weight discussion, many physicians are avoiding this topic altogether. seca has developed an entirely new approach to advising patients about weight related issues and the system can be used as a helpful icebreaker to open the discussion.

seca, the world's market leader in medical measuring and weighing, introduces a new component of the seca 360 wireless product system that enhances patient education on maintaining a healthy weight. Within a few easy steps, measurements are interpreted and compared to statistical norms. An immediate print out can be given to the patient to review while they wait to be seen by their physician. This immediate print out initiates weight discussion if desired by the patient, adding a completely new dimension to medical advice. This type of diagnostic support allows physicians to communicate with patients in a non-confrontational environment. seca's clear and direct approach is exactly the prescription needed to begin to turn the tide in the battle against obesity.

The seca 360 wireless product system is unique to seca and directly improves patient communication in primary care by making weight management efficient for both doctor and the patient. The product system fits within your existing workflow and is included with every seca 360 device at no additional cost. For a free product demonstration, call 1-800-542-7322 or visit seca.com/360 for more information.
