Seca 515 Medical Body Composition Analyser (Includes Software & USB Adapter)

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 studies 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 kilograms.

Additional advantages include the short measurement time of less than 20 seconds and the simple and intuitive navigation of 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.

Fat Mass/Fat Free Mass
The medically precise distinction between fat mass and fat-free mass is important when weight changes occur. This is especially true for patients that are overweight, obese and malnourished.

Skeletal Muscle Mass
The development and retention of skeletal muscle mass plays an important role in malnourished patients, in the area of sports medicine, and in the reduction of body weight. The display shows the individual values for each of the patients’ extremities as well as their torso.

Body Composition Chart
The BCC displays fat mass and fat-free mass in a graphic which enables you to interpret body composition at a glance. In addition, a series of measurements can be used to determine whether the fat mass or fat-free mass contributed to any weight change.

Body Water
Total body water, intracellular water, and extracellular water are identified separately. This supports the determination of dry weight, the detection of edemas, improved evaluation of weight loss, and the diagnosis of dehydration.

Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis
Information on fluid status and body cell mass is graphically re- presented which gives you a better analysis of a patients hydration status, nutritional status, and level of fitness. The BIVA is essential for nutrition counseling, sports medicine, and nephrology.

Phase Angle
The phase angle is correlated with the nutritional and metabolic status. Small irregularities in the somatic cells can be detected early and the severity of cancer, heart disease, and HIV can be verifiably determined. With the phase angle, signs of fatigue can be identified earlier and can assist physicians in the area of primary care and sports medicine.

Visceral Fat
The higher the visceral fat value, the higher the risk of cardiometabolic illnesses. With the seca mBCA, negative trends can be detect-ed early in order to initiate corresponding treatments and therapies.
