Our SECA 514 medical body composition analyzer is a critical member of our team. We’re in the business of helping patients regain their health, not just lose weight. The ideal is for every ounce lost to be fat, with lean muscle standing strong, or even increasing! Our body composition scanner ensures we know precisely what’s happening as our patients lose weight.*
The device shows exactly how much lean muscle a body has, and where it’s distributed.* The amount of muscle in each arm, each leg and the torso is reported down to the hundredth of a pound. With a waist measurement added in, the machine tells us how much of your body’s fat is visceral fat.* That’s the fat inside your abdomen, and the biggest risk factor in cardiovascular disease and diabetes, often resulting in heart attacks and strokes. The body composition scanner also shows how well hydrated a patient is, and gives an overall gauge of their nutritional condition and state of health.*
This device is so good, it’s used by many professional sports teams, including the Seattle Mariners! It’s the ultimate way to monitor player health and fitness. Muscle atrophy is a major concern during injuries, and with the SECA 514 mBCA, trainers will know just when a player is back to full strength. Body builders can use the results to tailor their workouts to even out differences in their limbs.
We don’t expect patients to compete with professional athletes, nor do we say they have to exercise as much as the pros, but that doesn’t mean their bodies don’t deserve the best in care. Not only are they getting top shelf technology, but they’re getting it with an easy access base with stationary hand holds for foolproof operation. Once the scan starts it only takes 17 seconds, and the graphs in the printout make the results easy to understand.
