Body Composition Analysis

If you want to improve your health and well-being, it’s important to gain an in-depth understanding of your body composition. At PharmXhealthOne wellness center, with convenient locations in Boynton Beach, and Palm Beach, Florida, the team utilizes a seca® medical body composition analyzer on-site. To schedule an appointment, book a consultation online, or call the nearest office and speak with a friendly staff member.


What is a body composition analyzer?

A body composition analyzer is an advanced tool that provides a non-invasive survey of your physical health. At PharmXhealthOne, the team uses a system manufactured by seca®. Seca has more than 150 years of experience developing the highest quality and most precise measuring systems and scales.

The seca mBCA holds validation through the Four Component Model, an equation that serves as the gold standard in fat mass estimation. This ensures accurate results and more satisfying treatment outcomes.

How does body composition analysis work?

The seca medical body composition analyzer is completely non-invasive. During your appointment, you stand in place on the machine. The seca mBCA uses several sensors to calculate a variety of factors, including your fat mass, body water, and muscle mass.

Your PharmXhealthOne provider uses these readings to develop a custom treatment plan. During treatment, your provider conducts medical composition analysis several more times. With each new reading, your treatment is adjusted as necessary.

How long does a body composition analysis take?

The seca mBCA is the leading medical body composition analyzer on the market. As such, it provides almost instant results. In fact, the seca mBCA needs only 17 seconds to interpret your body weight, height, and muscle mass. The system is so quick and efficient, most people complete their initial assessment in under half an hour.

Who can benefit from body composition analysis?

The team at PharmXhealthOne uses the seca mBCA for various reasons, including to:

  • Monitor improvements during physical therapy

  • Evaluate progress during medical weight loss treatment

  • Detect water loss and distribution in people with chronic kidney failure (CKF)

  • Identify diseases by detecting nutritional deficiencies

The seca mBCA is incredibly versatile. Following a comprehensive physical exam and a review of your health history, your PharmXhealthOne provider can determine if you’re a good candidate for body composition analysis.

Is the medical body composition analyzer safe?

Screening with the seca mBCA is safe and usually well-tolerated. Unlike other body analyzers on the market, you don’t have to remove your clothes and wear electrodes or wires. Instead, you take off your socks and shoes and stand on the supportive platform.

Once you’re in position, the body analyzer performs a comprehensive scan. The process is comfortable and entirely pain-free. Additionally, the platform is easily accessible and has handrails that provide a firm, stable grip. This makes it safe for people of all ages, including those with balance or mobility issues.

How long does it take to get the results of body composition analysis?

The seca mBCA provides immediate results that your PharmXhealthOne provider reads in-office on the same day as your initial scan. The team can also provide you with charts and graphs that illustrate your results in more detail.
