Developed to ensure patient safety and comfort as well as to reduce weighing time, these digital chair scales with wheels are conveniently portable and offer easy side or front access for patients. DETECTO digital chair scales are ideal for clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and physician offices. The models 6475 and 6475K models are equipped with a plastic-molded seat for added patient comfort, lift-away armrests and a fold-up footrest for easy access laterally, and the large 0.7-inch/19-mm high LCD display offer fast readouts accurate to within 0.2 lb / 0.1 kg. The scale’s LOCK/RELEASE key holds the patient weight, so that clinical professionals can attend to their patient first before recording the weight. Quality steel construction is apparent throughout the scale. The EMR/EHR-ready RS232 serial port comes standard and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth is available on some models. The chair scale’s capacity is 400 lb x 0.2 lb / 180 kg x 0.1 kg and the 6475K model is metric only.
DETECTO’s digital chair scales are of great benefit to disabled patients, dialysis patients, and elderly patients since they relieve any of the stress involved in the act of standing during the traditional weighing process by providing a place for the patient to sit comfortably while weighing. The scales can operate on six AA batteries (not included), allowing them to be completely mobile.
