Seca – always a step ahead

Health systems around the world are facing radical changes: the population is getting older, adiposity and chronic illnesses are on the advance. Here, seca gmbh & co. kg, Hamburg, sees itself as an innovative partner to those working in the health sector and, in all medical sectors where weighing and measuring people plays a role, it wishes to help them by continuing to provide them with technical pioneering work and tailor-made products. No other manufacturer has a more extensive range of well proven weighing and measuring devices. Each product reflects the decades of experience of the company in combination with state-of-the-art technology. In order to be prepared for future challenges in the health sector, the company stays closely in touch with the users. The cooperation with internationally renowned scientists and doctors plays an increasingly stronger role - whether in product development and optimisation or in the exchange of experience in the course of scientific research in which anthroprometric data is collected with seca products. A great deal of thought is given to the suggestions made by carers in the many different health sectors and the result thereof is often reflected in the many practice-oriented functions.

The right scale for general use
A scale for the practice of a general practitioner must meet other requirements than a scale for a dialysis centre or geriatrics unit. The general practitioner, for example, wants an all-purpose, robust model which, in view of the growing number of obese patients, must have a large capacity. For him, the new floor scale seca 869 is the right choice. For those working in the public health service, for healthworkers and nutritionists, scales must, above all, not only be light but also robust so that they still provide exact results after being transported from one place to another. seca has just introduced the new floor scale seca 876 for flexible, site-independent weighing. But in small things too, the world’s market leader for medical weighting and measuring comes out big. The new circumference measuring tape seca 203 is fitted with a WHR calculator to determine the waist-to-hip ratio - a real world novelty!

seca looks optimistically to the future
Innovative and market-driven products of the highest quality, close contact to the users and cooperation with customers on an equal basis are the basis of the company’s success. And that is why, even in a health system faced with radical changes, seca looks optimistically to the future.
