seca creates platform for scientific knowledge exchange on body composition
In reaction to the newest research findings and the growing number of nutrition and weight-related illnesses and complications, the medical community is becoming more aware of the significance of medical Body Composition Analysis (mBCA). Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. Anja Bosy-Westphal and Dr. Stephen Wootton, seca is launching the mBCA science center and creating a unique platform for international information exchange at www.medicalbodycomposition.com.
seca, global market leader in medical measuring systems and scales, opens its 14th international branch office in Kuala Lumpur. In addition to China and Japan, Malaysia is the third country in Asia with its own subsidiary. seca sees great growth potential, particularly in increasing public and private healthcare expenditures and the growing demand for high-quality medical technology products.
seca and B. Braun TravaCare rely on validated BIA technology
seca, the world market leader in medical measuring systems and scales, and B. Braun TravaCare, experts for parenteral nutrition at home, optimize the quality of nutrition medicine follow-up care with the use of validated Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis technology from seca. In the future the nutrition specialists from B. Braun TravaCare will measure patients' health status and nutritional condition in just seconds with the seca mBCA 525 and customize and monitor treatment based on body composition.
Malnutrition, obesity, Type 2 diabetes and all their consequences are among the world's major medical challenges of the 21st century. Nevertheless, the assessment of a patient's state of health and nutritional status is still based on classic vital signs and BMI (Body Mass Index). As critical parameters of body composition are not measured, the opportunities to initiate preventive measures or to optimize treatment remain unused. The seca medical Vital Signs Analyzer (mVSA) compensates for the weaknesses of BMI and increases the potential of non-invasive, ad hoc diagnostics to a completely new level.
