Arab Health 2019 - System solutions from seca define new measuring standards and optimize workflows in hospitals around the world

One document

Hamburg, 21 January 2019 - Within the scope of Medicine 4.0, seca has long since moved beyond its strong portfolio of medical scales and height-measuring devices. For many years the company has made substantial investments in EMR-ready measuring solutions which optimize the ad hoc assessment of the patient's state of health. At this year's Arab Health seca will be presenting integrated system solutions that increase efficiency and patient safety in hospitals worldwide. At Hall 2 Stand H2.C19 visitors will see how seca optimizes workflows and taps diagnostic potential.

"Digitalization is changing the healthcare market and bringing with it major changes in requirements for our products and system solutions," says Robert Vogel, seca managing director for Sales and Marketing. "As an innovation driver, we have invested more than 10 percent of our revenue in research and development over the past several years. The result is system solutions that not only measure height and weight but also body composition and vital signs and transmit all data into the EMR. We can use non-invasive methods to look ever deeper into the patient and thereby advance the possibilities in diagnostics and treatment."

Arab Health 2019 Highlights

Interface Module seca 452 -Quick and secure centralization of relevant patient data in EMR

- Scales and height-measuring devices can be integrated completely.
- WiFi makes use possible anywhere; no extra hardware needed
- Identification of personnel and patients via the EMR system, bi-directional 
  with bar code scanner 

Baby Scale seca 333i- Optimized workflow and increased patient safety

- From anywhere at all, WiFi and the integrated digital measuring rod transfer 
  height and weight directly into the EMR system.
- User and patient identification captured via bar code scanner

seca mBCA 514 - Holistic and personalized diagnosis and treatment options

- Measures body composition in 17 seconds
- Precise and valid data for best assessment of health and nutritional status
- The only BIA whose validation against gold standard methods (full-body MRI 
  scans, NaBr dilution and 4C) has been published in peer-reviewed scientific 
  journals. [i] 

seca mVSA 535[ii]- Differentiated ad hoc determination of patient's state of health and nutritional status

- World's first combined BIA and vital signs measuring system
- Registers blood pressure, SpO2, pulse, temperature, body composition
- Combination of BIA and vital parameters permit a deeper look into patients 
  than the BIA or vital signs alone can.
