Body Composition Analysis is topic at congress
Body composition analysis will be a subject of discussion at the 20th International Congress of Nutrition (ICN) 2013. The annual congress is among the most widely recognized nutritional events at the international level. More than 5000 nutritionists and nutrition experts are expected in Granada, Spain, from 15th to 20th September 2013. That’s reason enough to present the medical Body Composition Analyzer seca mBCA in this pre-eminent forum.
The seca team will offer device demonstrations at stand 36 in the exhibition held in conjunction with the congress. Doctors will have the opportunity to see for themselves how quickly the seca mBCA delivers a medically precise assessment of the patient’s overall heath and nutritional status.
seca mBCA – ideal diagnostic support in nutrition medicine
Both obesity and malnutrition bring about changes in body composition that the treating physician can recognize in the early stages with the help of the seca mBCA. The innovative diagnostic device manufactured by seca gmbh & co. kg, Hamburg, was positively compared to scientific gold standards in a series of international studies (current status: www.seca.com/studies).
In a non-invasive bioelectrical impedance measurement that takes less than 20 seconds, the seca mBCA determines fat mass, body water and skeletal muscle mass and presents the findings in a user-friendly report.
Malnutrition can be reliably diagnosed as the seca mBCA differentiates overhydration from cachexia and a lean physique. In treatment of obesity the seca mBCA monitors success with great accuracy. At a glance the doctor can see whether the therapy goal – fat reduction or muscle development – has been achieved.
