Raises awareness for maintaining a healthy weight

The seca directprint is the ideal tool for raising awareness about maintaining a healthy weight. Not only does it tell your patients their height, weight and BMI, but it compiles their measurements into an easy-to-read one page printout which includes sound information and tips on weight management. In seconds, it provides the ideal ice-breaker for your overweight patients by drawing attention to the subject of overweight and obesity without making them feel uncomfortable.
This removes inhibitions, makes people more willing to talk, and motivates your patients in the long term to tackle the subject more rigorously and do something about it. This in turn can generate economic benefits for your practice, since you can now offer additional services.


Strokes are the third leading cause of deaths and they are generated by a sudden disruption of blood circulation in the brain. They are often accompanied by dizziness, paralysis, vision and speech disorders. The consequences are very serious and can sometimes lead to permanent disabilities or death.

Typically men are 70 years old and women are 75 years old when a stroke occurs. The probability of becoming ill increases with age, weight and the related problems such as high blood pressure, lipometabolic disorders, diabetes mellitus and arteriosclerosis. Yet, prevention is possible by administering regular weight checks with seca scales since they can fulfill any weighing requirements for patients standing, sitting or lying down.

In 89% of all cases, a stroke can be diagnosed by the average person.
Here is how to recognize a stroke.

A simple test is the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale (CPSS):

  1. Ask the person to smile. If paralysis exists, one side of the face will droop.
  2. Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase such as “I do not need any help.” Speech should not be slurred.
  3. Ask the person to stretch out his/her arms with the palms facing up. If paralysis exists, one arm cannot be raised and the arm will fall or drift, especially if the person’s eyes are closed.
