Without any programming effort by the user, the software’s new Keyboard Module puts the basic parameters of height and weight in any field in the patient records. The measurements are written to the field where the cursor is located, or to any easily configured field. For users the advantages are obvious – efficiency gains, saved time and prevention of manually transcribed errors.
Additionally, any user can make the connection alone in just a few steps. Because no costly programming work or software integration in the EMR system is required, challenging cost calculations are not needed.
The software is free of charge as a download from www.seca.com. The USB-Adapter seca 456 is required for reception of the seca emr flash 101 wireless data.

seca also assists in patient counselling. ‘After a measurement has been made with seca 360° wireless products, the doctor diagnoses an underweight or overweight condition, the company explains. ‘An informative printout of the findings is automatically generated. It makes the patient aware of health problems, provides tips on lifestyle changes and gives the patient a basis for the counselling session with the doctor.’
For weight monitoring of premature babies seca is also demonstrating a wireless baby scale for use in neonatology. ‘Thanks to its very fine graduation, the scale gives the paediatrician a precise picture of the baby’s development.’
At Medica visitors can see how this fast, simple medical Body Composition Analyser seca mBCA can deliver a medically precise assessment of a patient’s overall health and nutritional condition. For diagnostic purposes the system breaks down weight into components of fat, muscle mass and water. This aids in the early detection of many diseases, such as over-hydration or cachexia, and helps with close monitoring during treatment. ‘That’s why ’ the firm points out, ‘body composition analysis and its significance in clinical practice are among the major topics at the seca stand.
