See what’s behind your weight

Fat mass
Excessive fat mass has negative effects on metabolism, appetite, blood pressure as well as inflammatory reactions. It’s even a risk factor for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Reduce health risks and increase your quality of life by
keeping the fat mass in the green range.

Muscle mass
High muscle mass is one of the most important factors for your health. It protects against injuries in age and ensures a healthy metabolism (e.g. lower risk of type 2 diabetes). Keeping muscle mass in the green range means a higher physical performance, health prevention and support for fat reduction.

Follow-up measurements
Does my exercise regimen have a positive effect on fat reduction? Does my high protein diet help to build muscle? You will get the answer in follow-up measurements with the seca mBCA. Look beyond your scale weight and see what is behind that number. Track and monitor your progress to see your real results.

Fat Mass Percentage
Why is fat mass important to know?

Understanding your total fat mass is essential for maintaining good health and overall well-being. While many people associate fat with negative connotations, it serves important functions in the body. Fat provides insulation and protection for vital organs, as well as a source of energy. However, excessive fat mass can lead to a variety of health issues, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. By knowing your total fat mass, you can assess your risk for these conditions and make informed decisions about your lifestyle and diet. Monitoring and managing your fat mass can help you set realistic fitness goals, track progress, and make necessary adjustments to your exercise and nutrition routines. Additionally, understanding your total fat mass empowers you to make positive changes to your body composition and overall health, leading to improved self-confidence and quality of life.

What is visceral adipose tissue?

Visceral adipose tissue, commonly referred to as VAT, is a type of fat that is stored deep within the abdominal cavity. Unlike subcutaneous fat, which sits just beneath the skin, VAT surrounds vital organs such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines. This tissue serves various functions in the body, including insulation, protection, and energy storage. However, excessive accumulation of VAT can have detrimental effects on health. VAT is metabolically active and produces hormones and chemicals that can lead to inflammation, insulin resistance, and an increased risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain types of cancer. Measuring VAT can be done through various imaging techniques like CT scans or MRI, allowing healthcare professionals to assess an individual’s risk for these health conditions. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can help reduce VAT and improve overall health.

Why is skeletal muscle mass important?

Skeletal muscle mass plays a crucial role in our overall health and well-being. Not only is it responsible for our ability to move and perform physical activities, but it also has numerous other benefits. One key importance of skeletal muscle mass is its role in maintaining a healthy body composition. Having a higher percentage of muscle mass helps to increase our basal metabolic rate, meaning we burn more calories at rest. This can aid in weight management and prevent the accumulation of excess body fat. Skeletal muscle mass also contributes to improved insulin sensitivity, which is essential for regulating blood sugar levels and reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Additionally, having strong and well-developed muscles helps to support our joints and prevent injuries. Regular resistance training and muscle-building exercises can promote bone health, improve posture, and enhance overall functional ability. So, maintaining and increasing skeletal muscle mass is not just about aesthetics, but it is vital for our overall health and longevity.
