Medically valid, medically precise, medically useful.
The medical Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) by seca breaks down weight into body compartments relevant to the practice of medicine, namely, Fat Mass and Fat-Free Mass, Body Water (made up of extracellular water and intracellular water) and Skeletal Muscle Mass. Measurements are processed by six analytical modules and presented in easy-to-understand graphics. seca has conducted validation studies¹ that compare its measurement results with the scientific gold standard. This level of precision is found in the device itself, e.g., in the standing aid function, which guarantees that the subject is always measured in the right position, in the hand-held electrodes which prevent measurement errors and in the large glass platform which is suitable for weighing patients up to 300 kg. Additional advantages include the short measurement time of less than 20 seconds and the simple and intuitive navigation over the touch-screen display. In brief, the seca mBCA is the best help for the diagnosis of many diseases such as current epidemics of obesity, diabetes or malnutrition. ¹: www.seca.com/studies.
Doctors know that the Body Mass Index (BMI) alone is not enough for extensive analysis of a patient’s health status and body composition. What about contents of fat, muscle, or water? All of which are important indicators of underlying medical conditions. This is exactly why seca has developed a medical Body Composition Analyzer, which delivers all these values and has been validated against the medical science gold standard. Thus, it is possible to precisely and medically determine values such as fat mass, extracellular and intracellular water, and skeletal muscle mass – in less than 20 seconds. All of which are fundamental components that assist in accurately assessing the patient with medical precision. With a simple, user friendly medical device that can be seamlessly integrated into your daily routine. A valuable diagnostic instrument and innovative device, that delivers precise benefits to your patients.
Simplified work, quick measurement and medically relevant results – clinically validated the only device of its kind !
The seca mBCA
The seca mBCA 514 is a medical Body Composition Analyzer which is ideally adapted to the working conditions in hospitals and medical practices. It is important thatthe measurement results have to be reproducible under normal clinicalworking conditions. These exact considerations went into the development of the seca mBCA.
The large, flat platform.
Ergonomic and user-friendly: The large easy-access weighing platform accommodates patients who weigh up to 300 kg. Made of safety glass, the platform can be cleaned quickly and easily.
Automatic electrode detection.
The seca mBCA makes a measurement only when all the electrodes have proper contact. The device shows when one of the eight electrodes is not working correctly.
Easy entry of patient data.
Large and turnable: With the integrated touch-screen display, patient data can be entered, the progress of the measurement can be monitored and results can be conveniently analyzed from many different perspectives.
Simple user navigation.
Simple, fast and user-friendly: The intuitive user navigation permits operation of the seca mBCA without hours of training.
The easy integration in every EMR system.
With the PC software seca analytics mBCA 115, the seca mBCA can be quickly and simply connected to any database. All patient records from the EMR system can be imported and all measurement and analysis data can be exported from to the EMR system.
