Medicine does not work
without medical values
Tracking progress, setting achievable goals and monitoring meaningful changes over time is vital for a training that promotes your members' health. Direct feedback about the members' body composition ensures success and reinforces their commitment to your club and your trainers. Thus, reliable data and the ability to accurately assess members with medical expertise is key.
Inspire your members to build strong ties to the personal trainer and health club.
Educate and motivate your members to improve member retention.
Provide your members with an individualized assessment of their body composition based on reliable data.
Optimize your training and treatment plans.
Attract new members who want to improve their health through exercise.
Monitor and track the success of the exercise regimen.
seca mBCA – bringing
medical values to medical wellness
Fat mass – detect excessive fat
Determining fat mass with calipers or measuring tapes is outdated and inaccurate. The seca mBCA, however, measures fat mass as accurately as time-consuming laboratory procedures.
Muscle mass – detect decreased muscles
The seca mBCA provides accurate data on muscle mass for each arm, leg and torso. This makes it possible to detect and counteract any imbalances.
Phase angle – measure cell quality
The phase angle measures the health of the body's cells. Conclusions about nutrition, body cell regeneration, or water retention can be drawn from the phase angle.
Visceral fat – detect hidden belly fat
Visceral fat is dangerous belly fat that is known to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart and circulatory diseases. Even if it is excessive it can be invisible, because it "hides" between the organs in the body's core.
The champion of accuracy
Whether a bioimpedance analysis delivers reliable and meaningful results depends on the actual reference method from which the analysis algorithms were derived.
The assessment of each compartment (muscles, fat, water) demands a different method. Below you will find the methods against which the seca mBCA was validated. Each of them represents the scientific gold standard. Since no other device has undergone such stringent validation, the seca mBCA provides the most accurate measurement results of any BIA device.
97% accuracy compared to a full-body MRI
Muscle mass 97% accuracy compared to a full-body MRI
In the past, a radiologist had to interpret full-body MRI scans to accurately determine muscle mass. Non-medical BIA devices are validated with a less-time-consuming and less accurate X-ray analysis (DEXA). However DEXA underestimates the fat mass in favor of muscle mass. Thus, a DEXA validated device „measures“ muscles in your members they have yet to build up.
98% accuracy compared to the 4C Model
Fat mass 98% accuracy compared to the 4C Model
The 4C Model is the only method that delivers truly accurate fat mass measurements. In time-consuming and expensive laboratory procedures bone density, body water and protein content are ascertained and included in the determination of fat mass. Other BIA-devices only assume these variables.
Total body water
98% accuracy compared to the D2O dilution method
Total body water 98% accuracy compared to the D2O dilution method
A glass of heavy water (deuterium oxide) must be drank to determine the total body water. The deuterium oxide is distributed evenly throughout the body and "marks" the water. The total body water can be calculated from a before-after comparison of two blood samples. Similar to this method the Extracellular water is validated (95% agreement).
The 8.4” touchscreen can be rotated by 360° so your trainer and member share the best view.
Permanent placed grips plus 8 intelligent electrodes (2 per foot, 2 per hand) eliminate incorrect measurements and allow for repeatable, accurate measurements.
Fat reduction, muscle growth and many other parameters are summarized in a customizable visual report. An indispensable tool that helps trainers engage their members.
Finally something moves
Graphs with a positive trend unfold a pull effect on your members’ commitment. Tracking progress and showing meaningful changes is one of the most important things a health club can do. It will encourage them to stay with the exercise program and achieve them a foundation for health in the long run.
“After I was diagnosed with diabetes, I pulled the emergency brake. The training cost me a tremendous amount of effort. At first it had no effect, so I thought about quitting. But once I saw the change in my body composition, it was clear that I would continue.”
“The injury was a hard hit. Now I am just happy that I have an eye on my rehab progress and can soon train again at full intensity.”
“To be honest, I felt too old to go to a fitness club. My doctor recommended it strongly and I‘m happy I took his advice. Before I started working out, I was exhausted after going shopping. Now I‘m into bouldering!”
A benefit for your members –
A benefit for you
New members are eager to check their training against medical data.
Active members stay track and adhere to training goals because they understand them better.
Inactive and difficult to motivate members see immediate feedback and are more educated and engaged to make a fresh start.
“The fitness market is highly competitive. With the mBCA from seca, I can distinguish myself from the competition and raise my profile for medical fitness.”
Already trusted in seca
Gideon Remfry Wellness Director, KX and KXU, London, United Kingdom
“We use the seca mBCA to provide our clients with a clear story of how their body composition is changing driven by commitment to their KX integrated wellness programme. The body composition assessment works synergistically with their oxidative stress and blood health markers to narrate a complete picture of how each individual is achieving their goals using optimal health to drive fat reduction and skeletal muscle building. This creates a very positive terrain to show clients their 'success'“
Polina Petrusevich Director of Nutrition and Training, Powerhouse Gym (Tampa, Florida)
“At Powerhouse Gym, when selecting a body composition analyzer we wanted a device that would differentiate us from the rest. We knew that we needed to provide our members with the highest level of accuracy and since the seca mBCA was designed for medical use – we knew we were getting just that. Members feel assured with their measurement results and our staff feels confident in the level of details they are able to provide.“
Gideon Remfry Wellness Director, KX and KXU, London, United Kingdom
“Measuring body composition is really important as part of how we show our Strength, Yoga and U-cycle group exercisers how they are achieving their results and goals. We have additionally used the seca measurements to assess the success of our KXU medispa whole body cryo therapy and red light PhotoBioModulation (infrared red) treatments with excellent results. There are numerous ways of testing and we have found the seca mBCA the most robust method of bioimpedance thus far.“
Drew Miller Director of Courthouse Fitness, Salem, Oregon, USA
“Members trust us to deliver on accuracy, therefore it’s vital that we are using a device that is validated to the gold standard. All in all, the seca mBCA helps communicate how serious we are in our desire to deliver real results for our members, while differentiating ourselves from other health clubs.“
Tracey & Thom Downing FiT, Los Altos, California, USA
“Often times, clients are initially adding muscle mass without reducing body fat. This is to be expected but can be frustrating to see weight on a traditional scale increasing. Having a tool that enables us to track not only total body weight but body composition, segmental muscle mass and hydration, has helped us validate clients efforts aiding them in maintaining/increasing motivation, adherence and effort.“
Bob Wright Director of Education, Hilton Head Health, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA
“At Hilton Head Health, the seca mBCA has become a vital element in our intake processes. As an industry-leading weight loss & wellness facility, one of our goals is to assess our guests' baseline stats upon arrival. The seca mBCA excels at providing us accurate data while being convenient and easy-to-use. We then use this data to formulate personalized weight management programs for our guests individually. The seca mBCA is an important tool that provides us the opportunity to provide our guests with the best weight management and wellness services possible.“
