Seca is the worldwide market leader for medical measuring and weighing and has been perfecting the skill of innovative weighing technologies since 1840. Seca’s medical Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) uses bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) to pass a weak electrical current through the body to measure the resistance against fat and muscle tissues. This data is used in prediction equations to calculate parameters to provide patients with information about their body fat, muscle mass, and water.
Body composition parameters give clinicians better tools than just weight and BMI to individualize treatment plans and measure outcomes. For centers accredited by MBSAQIP with the Obesity Medicine Designation, body fat percentage must be reported and can be done using seca’s scientifically validated medical body composition devices, which are 97% accurate when compared with a whole-body MRI for muscle mass and the 4-Compartment Model for fat mass/fat-free mass.
