A baby‘s weight should be closely monitored to ensure a healthy start in life. That‘s why seca offers baby scales with functions to make weighing easy for nurses, doctors and care providers and with features to make babies feel good. These functions and features include skin-friendly material that quickly absorbs and reflects body warmth, soothing shapes that give the baby a feeling of security, and a damping function that ensures accurate measurement even if the baby moves.
Pediatric measuring systems
Clinics, medical practices and health care facilities have varied conditions and requirements. seca responds with a wide range of products for pediatrics – from the infantometer to measuring mat and from measuring rods to the head circumference measuring tape. seca has the right solution for every application, whether the devices are for in-patient or mobile use, in large or small spaces, every day or infrequent use. They all share the renowned seca quality which always lives up to the most demanding medical requirements.
seca mBCA - Where BMI stops, the medical Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) takes over. Up until now, a doctor‘s assessment of a patient‘s general health was a calculation with many unknowns. After all, the Body Mass Index (BMI) is based only on weight and height. What about the portions of fat, muscle and water? They too are important indicators of overall health status.
For 170 years scales made by seca have been used in clinics, medical practices and health care facilities. The experience of all those years offers unequaled opportunities, obvious in day-to-day use: in intuitive operation that requires no time-consuming studying of instruction manuals
Where space is limited, there is still room enough for seca scales and their many functions. Routine medical work is made easier, for example, by the limit function that lets orthopedists show patients the maximum loads for effective rehabilitation. Other features of seca flat scales include the high weight-bearing capacity of up to 300 kilograms and the extremely long battery operation for up to 16,000 weighings. Practical accessories such as carrying cases, and a stand for a separate display make work easier for the user.
Height measuring systems
Measuring rods, stadiometers and circumference measuring tapes are relatively simple devices in routine medical work. They still have to fulfill challenging clinical requirements. That’s why seca produces such items as non-abrasive measurement scales and parts made of distortion-resistant anodized aluminum. For quality you can touch and see – in devices that don’t warp even after years of use, in measuring slides that always glide smoothly into position and in the consistently precise measurements that such qualities guarantee.
Multifunction and wheelchair scales
Weighing can be a complicated process, but it does not have to be. The multifunctional scales by seca offer ease of use whether the patient is sitting in a wheelchair or standing. Four scale cells make sure that a measurement can be made in any position – standing without support or holding onto the hand rail, in the middle of the scale or at the edge. There is no need for careful positioning of the patient or adjustments to the scales before weighing can take place. The focus is on convenient operation, for instance with chair scales featuring fold-away hand rails and footrests.
How can you weigh immobile patients or those who are unsteady on their feet as comfortably as possible? It is best to use seca chair scales because they can be brought directly to the patient when needed, sparing unnecessary effort. The intelligent construction with fold-away footrests enables the patient to sit down comfortably and stand up safely. The precise weighing technology provides accurate results.
Bed and dialysis scales
Our bed and dialysis scales have been carefully tested in the past by specialists and intensive care consultants, in dialysis and burn units and found to be ideal. They are now also being used to an increasing extent in nursing homes. Because every gram is important in the case of immobile patients, precision is what counts. The bed and dialysis scales from seca with their alarm function can assist critical monitoring, for example, in the case of clinical procedures involving the loss of fluid or special fluid turnover, or simply in areas where patients can be weighed only in bed.
Measurements transmitted by the seca 360° wireless devices can be printed quickly by seca wireless thermal printers. They also handle the automatic interpretation and analysis of results in that they present diagrams of a BMI or a child?s rate of growth, for example, and compare the findings to standard ranges.
<p>The seca software offers you the perfect entry to the new world of weighing and measuring and beyond that to an extensive range of solutions that lighten your daily workload.</p><p>The seca software takes care of transmitting measurements from seca 360° wireless measurement systems and scales via a secure medical frequency directly or after interpretation into digital patient files. This wireless solution increases efficiency, saves time and eliminates manual transcription errors.</p>
The usage options for seca products can be greatly expanded with accessories from seca. The appropriate ramp, for example, can be added to the multifunction and wheelchair scales for easy access to the platform. Or separately available interfaces connect your seca product directly to a PC. Optional measuring rods combine weighing and measuring into a single process. And don't forget the carrying cases that are so practical you'll be tempted to circle the globe with one.
