Medical Scales are used to provide accurate height and weight measurements. They are portable, reliable and come in a wide variety to meet specific user requirements. There are baby scales for weighing infants, chair scales for weighing people who confined to chair, in-bed scales for measuring people restricted to bed and wheelchair scales to weigh people confined to wheelchairs. Health Products For You provides a wide range of height and weight scales from popular manufacturers like Seca, Detecto, Fabrication Enterprises, Graham Field Health Products, etc.
Baby Scales: Baby scales are used for everyday diagnosis of infants and toddlers. They provide accurate and reliable weight measurements of babies without causing any discomfort to them.
Chair Scales: Chair scales are designed for people with limited mobility who have difficulty in standing on a normal scale. These medical scales are portable and simplify the procedure of checking weights.
Column Scales: Column scales are digital medical scales used by people to get reliable results. Their display is mounted on a high rod, so that it gets easier for the user to read his/her weight.
Flat Scales: Flat scales are used to measure body mass index (BMI), which is an indicator of healthy body. They can be used at home, gym or clinics.
Hanging/Patient Lift Scales: Hanging scales help in measuring the weight of patients suspended from a patient lift. They are easy to set up and intuitive to operate.
In-Bed Scales: In-bed scales are perfect for checking the weight of people who are confined to bed or cannot move much. These medical scales provide fast and accurate weight check without bothering the patients in bed.
Wheelchair Scales: Wheelchair scales are ideal for users who are restricted to wheelchairs and have difficulty in standing up. They are portable and easy to use.
Measuring Instrument: Measuring instruments include products like stadiometer, measuring tape, measuring rod, multi-functional scale, diet and kitchen scale, etc. to make the lives of users easy and comfortable.

It is suggested that weighing equipment should be calibrated annually and certificated if required. But in case of critical or high accuracy applications it is recommended that the equipment is checked daily prior to use. A longer certification frequency of two or three years can be justified if the accuracy drift between calibrations is much smaller than the accuracy that is required and if the application is not critical.
No, readability of weighing equipment is the smallest quantity that it will display. Accuracy is the maximum difference between the applied test weight and the displayed weight. Some manufacturers quote the accuracy on the product datasheets. No measuring device is 100% accurate and typically the accuracy of standard weighing scales in a stable environment is approximately +/- (2 x division size) throughout the weighing range.
Tolerance depends on the model of scale. Please refer to the scale User Manual or call our Technical Service department for the specifications for your model toll-free at 866-316-0162.
Yes, it will not affect the accuracy of the scale if the floor or the scale itself is not perfectly level, or if the scale is on thin carpet
Calibration simply means that you are teaching the scale what ZERO weight is, in another words ACCURATE or "span" weight.
Since you are teaching the scale a known weight, it is important to make sure the weight applied is as accurate as possible. Most scales allow you to choose what weight you are using for calibration, they can be 10%, 25%, 50% of the scales capacity. Once defining your calibration weight, and performing a calibration, the scale will mathematically calculate the weight placed on the scale above the calibration weight used.
