When I was going through the data about the studies that had shown the accuracy and validity – all of that together made me go with the seca device.
David Nieman, PhD, Director of the Human Performance Lab at the Appalachian State University in Kannapolis, NC uses the seca mBCA in his human performance research. The body composition analysis provides him with accurate information about a test subject's fat mass, fat-free mass, and skeletal muscle mass.
Obtaining a value of Resting Energy Expenditure can be quite involved. Traditionally, this value is determined with the use of a metabolic chamber or metabolic cart. Research has shown, though, that one can determine RMR using the fat-free mass of a test subject. David Nieman, PhD, Director of the Human Performance Lab at Appalachian State University is using a seca mBCA 514 medical body composition analyser to accurately determine the fat-free mass and thus come to the RMR in seconds, rather than the more time intensive but less accurate methods using a metabolic chamber or cart.
Felice Gersh, MD

The percentage of body fat and the percentage of body muscle is way more important clinically than a number on a scale.
David Voellinger, MD, describes the shift in focus from a weight loss (BMI) based practice to a body composition based workflow. "The percentage of body fat and the percentage of body muscle is way more important clinically than a number on a scale.
David Voellinger, MD describes the value of body composition analysis in clinical application. He speaks to his use of the seca medical Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) pre-op and the value of being able to determine the development of fat mass and skeletal muscle mass independently when determining an individualized weight loss regimen for his patients. He appreciates the four-extremities display of muscle mass and the ability to determine whether a patient’s water weight is mostly held in muscle or if it is water otherwise retained in the body.

In the complex symphony of interactions that are the human body, it is paramount to find an objective "before and after" guide to monitor therapy. We evaluate patients presenting for weight loss, heart disease, chronic infections, hormone replacement therapy, diabetes and more using the seca mBCA. The assessment is simple and quick, the report is easy to understand and explain to patients. The subsequent evaluations are helpful to guide adjustments in care when other tools are less specific, and patients are encouraged by the measured progress beyond the scale or confirmation that their efforts have not been in vain.
Tracey and Thom Downing

Los Altos, CA, USA
The seca mBCA provides an efficient, non-invasive method to accurately measure body composition. As a results focused training facility, we had previously relied upon calipers which can have a great deal of variability or hydrostatic and DEXA scans which are not as easily accessed. 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 body fat and hydration; has helped us validate clients efforts aiding them in maintaining/increasing motivation, adherence and effort.
Doctor Marco Paulo de Benedetto
Modernst – Medicina Integrativa
What fascinates me most about the seca mBCA is that the result is already presented in sarcopenia and hydration charts. Together with the phase angle, this gives an adequate picture of the state of health. The precision of the values is impressive. The results support my trainings and meet my expectations. The Body Mass Index (BMI) has already contributed a lot to medicine, but needs updating and modernization. The medical analysis of body composition is this progress. In the not-too-distant future, we will have an mBCA in every healthcare facility. I am very grateful that this progress is part of my life and my patients.

We have been using seca mBCA for over one year now and for us the BIA measurement method offers a quick scan with precision and reliable results. The seca mBCA is used in our clinic as a diagnostic tool prior to any kind of aesthetic treatment with which we monitor all patients results throughout therapy. We chose the seca mBCA because as an aesthetic clinic, it is important for us to monitor obese patients and their body composition in order to evaluate changes in body weight through differences between fat, muscles and fluid compartments with a main focus on fat mass reduction. The seca mBCA is very easy and practical to use, with it we get an individualized and specialized approach to every patient.

In our specialty clinic we primarily use the seca mBCA for severely obese or malnourished patients. One important factor of the therapy program is motivating patients to come to terms with their diagnosis. This works excellently with the mBCA. The precise analysis of body composition as well as the clearly structured presentation and comparability of the measurement values help patients to recognize their physical condition and actively support the therapeutic target. The device is not complicated to use and the measurements are fast and very precise. It can therefore be integrated into the workflow very well. The high stability of the seca mBCA offers good safety for severely obese patients during the measurement process.

Muscles as a motor for life functions through their energy production are the focus of overall assessments of how functional and thereby how healthy a person is. The BIA measurement method offers fast and reliable data on this. With the aid of the seca mBCA we can use non-invasive means to identify how muscles are behaving in their quantitative and qualitative target and actual range. Our patients value this fast and uncomplicated measurement method. It helps to provide motivation for weight regulation, weight loss and monitoring the effects of training. The seca mBCA measurement method is indispensable from our practice. Rather, it has become a focus of our diagnostics.
Professor Dr. med. Yurdagül Zopf
Internist, nutritionist and gastroenterologist
University Hospital Erlangen
The fast and differentiated measurement using the mBCA enables its systematic use in the hospital as well as the individualized adjustment of therapies. Here we use the seca mBCA for diagnostic purposes in order to identify the change in body composition among malnourished and obese patients early. We also use the measurement for the monitoring of nutritional and exercise therapy. Disturbances in the body's fluid status can be better quantified. The metric measurement enables a reliable representation of muscle reserves. A quantification of fat mass is important for obese patients in order to create a therapeutic target and to promote the motivation of patients through the measurement/representation of body composition over the course of therapy. We also use the mBCA for cancer patients and patients with chronic illnesses such as chronic inflammatory bowel disease, unexplained weight loss and short bowel syndrome.

The integration service of seca optimized our daily measurements and made our workflow seamless. It reduced user intervention considerably, by eliminating the need for double data entry, thereby, reducing user fatigue and subsequent data entry errors.
Dr. Leonardo Alemán Cruz
Director of the Centro de Rehabilitación del CIS La Pradera
(Rehabilitation Centre at the La Pradera International Health Centre)
We have many patients in rehabilitation, where the predisposing factors are analysed, which are used to define the rehabilitation treatment and assess its effectiveness. Individualised physical rehabilitation is defined on a daily basis for a period of three months, and this includes an exercise programme for muscle re-education, deep oscillation and electrical stimulation. Before starting any rehabilitation treatment we carry out an analysis with the Seca mBCA and always after two cycles of rehabilitation, after every two months of treatment, we perform another body composition analysis. The effectiveness of the rehabilitation treatments is evaluated by conventional goniometry, electrical bioimpedance analysis after 30 seconds with the Seca mBCA equipment in the "Function/Rehabilitation" section; this shows that the Seca mBCA medical grade body composition analyser is a useful tool in the assessment of treatment, as it shows the improvement in the patient’s metabolic parameters.
Dr. med. Mariusz Teter

Medical University of Lublin
We bought a seca mBCA 515 multi-frequency compartmental body composition analyser from Vitako Sp. z o.o. for use in a research project. The seca mBCA 515 is made to a high standard and is easy to use. The touchscreen display is clear and logical, allowing data to be entered quickly and accurately. The integrated scales, which have a weighing capacity of up to 300 kg, are a very important feature. They enable body composition to be analysed in relation to exact measurements of actual body weight, and the eight fixed electrodes allow an accurate analysis to be made in only 19 seconds. The use of fixed electrodes means that the cost per analysis is very low. In view of these qualities and our preliminary evaluation based on use of the seca mBCA 515 in our research we are sure that it represents the future of body composition screening for healthy subjects and sportspeople as well as for patients. We recommend it.
Dr. Arnaldo Hurtado L.
For me, the seca mBCA is a diagnostic tool which, by means of a quick and easy scan, enables me to obtain very useful and precise results regarding a patient’s body composition. These details can tell me about a patient’s progress, whether the weight loss is healthy, the condition of the muscle mass, and the phase angle, which has a prognostic value in terms of health. Extremely useful for our bariatric surgery patients and overweight patients who are following a balanced diet.
Nutritionist and TCM Specialist
The seca mBCA 515 is the best bioelectrical impedance body composition analyser I have ever used. It helps me every day in my work with patients who have health problems such as autoimmune disease, insulin resistance and thyroid disease. It is simple to use and measures the most important parameters, allowing precise monitoring of changes taking place in patients. The medical validation of the machine guarantees that the results I receive are very precise and, more importantly, reliable. Another useful feature is the clear and easy to understand printout of results which the patient receives. For me as a nutritionist it is also extremely useful to be able to print out the results as a comparative table, an option which was added with the last update.

The seca mBCA can be recommended especially due to its precision of measurements for use in scientific studies. We have chosen this device, for example for measuring body composition in the German National Cohort, a long-term population study with planned 200.000 attendees. The seca measurement results provide body composition (fat mass and fat-free mass) or the determination of total body water in comparison with the gold standard in a very good way. The instrument itself needs only a few seconds to measure, is fast and simple to use and the measurement requires no elaborate preparation from the test persons or patients. Moreover, the seca mBCA delivers additional parameters with regards to the individual body components that can be valuable for the test person or the operator of the device.

The seca mBCA has helped speed up the process of measuring all of our athletes versus our past method using calipers. The reliability of being able to have multiple trainers use the device and knowing that it is always consistent and the results are reproducible because of the fixed handrail positioning, really helps to simplify our workload. Instead of measuring athletes on a bi-monthly basis, I am now able to measure them weekly and review trend analysis on their body fat, lean mass, and hydration levels. This valuable data allows me to customize each athletes’ training program and further educate them on nutrition and recovery strategies between practices and games.

The mBCA has been a very helpful tool to offer our patients a more complete and accurate evaluation of their nutrition state. The equipment gives us nutritionist important data to use in the nutrition altreat ment of our patients and information that allows us to assess the impact and follow up of our patient streat ments. Another great benefit we have while using the MBCA now is monitoring already diagnosed patients and their illnesses. It’s such a perfect tool for obtaining fast and reliable information of several patients at the same time. We worked with the police corp, 800 individuals their evaluation was automatically stored where needed in no time at all! The graphics and coloring of the evaluations are easily understood by the patients.

The seca mBCA provides an additional possibility to monitor dry weight in dialysis patients. I am able to detect dehydration as well as fluid overloads. In my opinion the seca mBCA is the clinical gold standard for assessing dry weight. We apply the measurement every three months in eligible patients and I then receive all relevant information. I use the device for controlling dialysis patients. The measurments are carried out by a nutritionist who is employed in our center.
Dr. Matthias Riedl, MD
Diabetologist, Nutritional Physician
Medical Director for Internal Medicine and CEO of Medicum Hamburg MVZ GmbH
During control of an obesity therapy, the medicum Hamburg relies on the BIA measuring from seca, as it delivers fast and reliable validated data. The patients appreciate the visualization of their health and nutritional status. This highly supports the motivation during the therapy treatment. This offer is used increasingly also by athletes to monitor their body constitution. The seca mBCA allows us to see if patients are adhering our requirements. The main therapy objective - especially for obese patients - is a reduction of fat mass while increasing muscle mass. These values can easily be assessed with the seca mBCA. Patients, who did not manage to reduce overall weight, may have lost fat mass while gaining muscles. This is a great success for the patients, which we would not have detected without the seca mBCA.
