seca Supports Obesity Therapy with the New medical Body Composition Analyzer

HAMBURG, Germany, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this Summer, the American Medical Association officially classified obesity as a disease that requires a range of medical interventions for treatment and prevention. The cornerstone of a scientific approach to physician assisted weight loss is an accurate assessment and precise monitoring of body composition. seca, the global leader in medical measuring and weighing, has long recognized the importance and scope of the nation's obesity epidemic. In response to the need for a research grade accuracy in a medical body composition analyzer, seca introduces its medical Body Composition Analyzer 514 (seca mBCA 514).

The seca mBCA 514 measures: fat mass, fat free mass, total body water, intracellular water, extracellular water with reference method accuracy – in less than 20 seconds. These direct measurements, extensive race specific reference values and open fields for other lab indices give the seca mBCA the reliable diagnostic power that physicians need to evaluate a patient's fat distribution and total cardiovascular risk factors.

Equipped with an 8-point electrode Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis measurement method, the seca mBCA's unique standing-aid guarantees that the patient is always in the same measurement position. The seca mBCA offers decisive advantages for obesity interventions, including comprehensive assessment of a patient's general health and nutritional status, disease risk stratifications, precise monitoring of physiologic responses and compliance to therapy, and several other features. Caloric requirements, stored calories, energy output and resting energy expenditure are all reportable and uniquely graphed with optional patient-friendly versions that include explanations. The seca mBCA is EMR compatible and includes a stand-alone Body Composition EMR system.
