What is Seca mBCA 515?

The clinically proven and medically precise Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) developed by the company Seca, world leader in production of medical scales, breaks down weight into body compartments relevant for formulating our personalized therapy plan; fat and fat-free mass, body water (extracellular and intracellular water) and skeletal muscle mass.

With a detailed body analysis at Polyclinic Bagatin we determine:

  • Weight,
  • Percentage of fat tissue,
  • Muscle mass weight,
  • Percentage of water,
  • Bone weight,
  • BMI – (body mass index),
  • BMR - basal metabolism.

How is the measurement done?

Measurements are processed by six analytical modules and presented in easy-to-understand graphics. Seca has conducted validation studies that compare its measurement results with the scientific gold standard. This level of precision is found in the device itself, e.g., in the standing aid function, which guarantees that the subject is always measured in the right position, hand-held electrodes prevent measurement errors and uses a large glass platform suitable for weighing patients up to 300 kilograms.

In addition to height and weight, parameters such as body mass, body water and muscle mass help in making a diagnosis or recommending a therapy. A body composition analyser which delivers precise results is an excellent tool for our operators.

During the course of treatment it is important to monitor the efficiency of certain measures and apply them as appropriate. With a short measurement time, precise data and clear overview of the course of therapy, we can define a unique therapy plan for all of our clients. That is why we emphasise the importance of consultations at which we can define goals and discover wishes and desires of our clients.

How to prepare yourself for Seca analysis?

  • It is recommended not to eat 1-2 hours before analysis.
  • Large meals or large beverages on the same day prior to analysis should also be avoided.
  • For the most accurate results, it is recommended not to consume caffeine drinks and alcoholic beverages 12 hours prior to analysis.
  • Measurements should not be taken within 12 hours of strenuous activity since the body's temperature is elevated and resistance in the body is altered.
  • In addition, the bladder should be emptied prior to the measuring process.
