HAMBURG, Germany, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pediatric obesity is an epidemic in the United States, with an estimated 17% of children ages 2-19 being overweight or obese. Early recognition and diagnosis of pediatric obesity is key to successful intervention and management of what could become a lifelong situation of serious health conditions. seca, the global leader in medical measuring and weighing, emphasizes the importance of prevention and early recognition for childhood obesity, and supports clinicians with its new seca 360 wireless system. The medical scales and software comprised in this system gives a comprehensive overview of a patient's health and provides the tools necessary to identify cardiometabolic risk factors, growth/development disorders, and works as a nutrition planner to establish target weight goals.
