seca and Coach Tom Shaw Partner to
Optimize Athlete Performance at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
The seca mBCA will play a critical role in evaluating fat and muscle mass, providing segmental analysis of muscles to help define specific physiotherapy treatment, and monitor intracellular, extracelluar and total body water levels - all indicators to help determine if each athlete is properly hydrated.
Coach Tom Shaw’s team of trainers and medical staff can easily make any necessary adjustments in their fitness and nutrition programs based on the individual needs of each athlete. Rikki Keen, the sports dietitian for Coach Shaw’s Program, stated, “Beyond offering an easy and quick method of analyzing body fat and lean mass over time, the most important improvement the seca mBCA provides me with is valuable data to focus on hydration, both extracellular and intracellular, measuring fluid shifts and overall hydration status for my athletes. Hydration guidelines are very individual, so I can further customize and educate each athlete based on these numbers by adjusting fluid intake, electrolytes and/or nutrients that may affect fluid shifts.”
seca, the global leader in medical measuring and weighing, offers healthcare providers advanced wireless technology and system solutions that go beyond height and weight.
