The innovative diagnostic instrument is the only Body Composition Analyzer (BCA) which makes precise medical measurements and analyzes and interprets the BCA raw data against medical reference values. The results help doctors to detect early signs of disease and to keep a close watch on treatment progress. The seca medical Body Composition Analyzer 515/514 (seca mBCA) is ideally adapted to the working conditions in hospitals, medical practices and rehabilitation facilities to determine the exact body composition of individual patients. Electrical impedance is measured via electrodes to determine fat, muscle and water components.

This product analyzes the composition of the human body. The simple, sleek design, however, means the device does not look like a conventional piece of medical equipment. The result is that the patient does not feel that he or she is at the mercy of the machine, but instead simply feels secure. This is minimalist design vocabulary that is highly desirable in the world of medicine and is therefore deserving of an iF gold award.
