HAMBURG, Germany, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- seca, the world's market leader in medical measuring and weighing, introduces a new component of the seca 360 wireless product system. With nearly two-thirds of American adults overweight or obese and only one-third of doctors discussing weight with their patients, seca urges primary care facilities to take action! While you may be pressed for time, don't allow time constraints and the awkward discussion prohibit you from addressing this issue.

The seca 360 wireless product system is an entirely new approach to advising patients about weight related issues. Within a few easy steps, measurements are interpreted and printed immediately for a patient to review while they wait to be seen by their physician. This immediate printout enhances patient education on maintaining a healthy weight and initiates weight discussion if desired by the patient. This type of diagnostic support adds a completely new dimension to medical advice and allows doctors to communicate with patients in a non-confrontational environment. seca hopes this clear and direct approach may be exactly the prescription needed to begin to turn the tide in the battle against obesity.

The seca 360 wireless product system is unique to seca and directly improves patient communication in primary care by making weight management efficient for both doctor and the patient. The product system fits within your existing workflow and is included with every seca 360 device at no additional cost. For a product demonstration, call 1-800-542-7322 or visit www.seca.com/360 for more information.
