Nelly Kreß

Nutritionist
Nelly Kreß – Ernährungsmedizinische Beratung, Berlin, Germany

Nelly Kreß, nutritional consultant in Berlin, can no longer imagine her work without an examination of the body composition. Due to the medical validation and the use in university hospitals, the choice of the seca mBCA was easy for her and her patients are also convinced of the value of this method.

Wellness Director
KX and KXU, London, UK

Measuring body composition is really important as part of how we show our Strength, Yoga and U-cycle group exercisers how they are achieving their results and goals. We have additionally used the seca measurements to assess the success of our KXU medispa whole body cryo therapy and red light PhotoBioModulation (infrared red) treatments with excellent results. There are numerous ways of testing and we have found the seca mBCA the most robust method of bioimpedance thus far.

David Nieman, Ph.D.

Director, Human Performance Lab
Appalachian State University, Boone, North Carolina, USA

David Nieman, PhD, Director of the Human Performance Lab at the Appalachian State University in Kannapolis, NC uses the seca mBCA in his human performance research. The body composition analysis provides him with accurate information about a test subject's fat mass, fat-free mass, and skeletal muscle mass.



Obtaining a value of Resting Energy Expenditure can be quite involved. Traditionally, this value is determined with the use of a metabolic chamber or metabolic cart. Research has shown, though, that one can determine RMR using the fat-free mass of a test subject. David Nieman, PhD, Director of the Human Performance Lab at Appalachian State University is using a seca mBCA 514 medical body composition analyser to accurately determine the fat-free mass and thus come to the RMR in seconds, rather than the more time intensive but less accurate methods using a metabolic chamber or cart.

David Voellinger, MD

Bariatric Surgeon
Novant Health, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

David Voellinger, MD describes the value of body composition analysis in clinical application. He speaks to his use of the seca medical Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) pre-op and the value of being able to determine the development of fat mass and skeletal muscle mass independently when determining an individualized weight loss regimen for his patients. He appreciates the four-extremities display of muscle mass and the ability to determine whether a patient’s water weight is mostly held in muscle or if it is water otherwise retained in the body.



David Voellinger, MD, describes the shift in focus from a weight loss (BMI) based practice to a body composition based workflow. "The percentage of body fat and the percentage of body muscle is way more important clinically than a number on a scale."

Medical Director
Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, California, USA

Felice Gersh, Medical Director at the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, describes how she uses body composition analysis on Patients that are on the Fasting Mimicking Diet. She has been able to confirm with the seca mBCA 514 that patients lose predominantly fat and not lean muscle mass.



Felice Gersh of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, CA declares her goal to prevent changes in body composition of menopausal women by utilizing the seca mBCA 514. This medical device gives her insights into the development of her patient's fat mass, fat-free mass, muscle mass, visceral fat, phase angle and water weight and helps her in determining how to respond with the appropriate hormone therapy.
