Scales & Measurement
No results were found for the filter!
Scales are medical devices used to determine the body mass, i.e. the weight of your patients. They are of great importance when measuring BMI, weight changes or other health problems and can also help to give hints about dieting to combat excessive weight changes. Medical scales are used in the medical field and are intended for professional use.
The large number of scales on the market, coupled with the increasingly sophisticated additional functions of the measuring instruments, makes it increasingly difficult to find the right medical weighing equipment. Would you like to order a digital or analog scale online? We recommend that you focus on the most important factors for your needs: What should be the maximum load capacity of your scale? How large should the weighing surface be? What type of display should your scale have? Do you want a column scale, a floor scale or a scale with an LCD display? Do you need a mechanical scale or an electronic scale?
On the DocCheck store you will find the most common models of medical scales in the medical field. Browse our wide range and order your new scale in just a few clicks.
Calibrated scales are medical weighing devices that are highly accurate and are characterized by additional legal requirements. In the medical field, the calibration classes range from class I to class III. Scales with calibration class I and III can be approved directly by the manufacturer. In the case of calibration class II, the scales are calibrated by the competent calibration office. Calibration of the balance is required for the production of pharmaceutical, medical and laboratory products. If calibration is not performed, the accuracy of the balance may be affected and the weighing results falsified. This can result in truncated patient test results. However, an uncalibrated model can be used for simple weighing with a mechanical scale.
The digital scale and the analog scale are two common models when it comes to measuring patient weight. Both types of scales have different types of displays, whether it is an LCD or an analog display. With the digital scale, also known as an electronic scale, you get a highly accurate body weight that can differ by up to 100 g from the weight displayed on the screen, depending on the model. With the analog or mechanical scale, the result is "approximate". The dial with fixed swivel pointer included in the scale is equipped with a graduated scale. Round weights, 10, 20, 30 kg, etc., are displayed in a large scale and additional information is presented in subdivisions corresponding to 1 kg intervals, similar to the scale of a ruler incremented by ten. Therefore, analog scales do not provide as accurate measurement results as electronic scales.
Baby scales are designed to be ergonomic and space-saving. The scale is easily transportable due to its light weight, making it ideal for midwives making home visits. Babies and newborns tend to be quite restless during the consultation. Strong shaking and kicking can cause the baby to topple over while on a normal scale. This is why the scale has a special weighing tray that secures the baby's position. This weighing tray is removable on many models for other uses. The maximum load capacity for these models is usually between 15 and 20 kg.
During a traditional weight check, it is necessary that the patient is in a stable standing position during the weighing process. This cannot always be done with frail or disabled people. This makes the scale chairs an ideal solution for nursing homes, homes for the disabled, rehabilitation centers and busy doctors' offices. These scales have a maximum load capacity of up to 300 kg depending on the model. The wheelchair scale is a scale for patients who need a wheelchair for weighing or who even come with their own wheelchair. The wheelchair scale has an accessible ramp and is easy to use.
Impedance analysis scales are reliable and flexible instruments. The extensive body mass measurement capability allows not only normal weight children and adults, but also obese patients to be weighed. Most of these scales have a maximum load capacity of between 200 and 300 kg.
Scales are also indispensable in veterinary medicine. Pets also need to be weighed regularly. Some of the animals being very light, the weight of this scale is displayed in 50g increments. The veterinary scale has a non-slip rubber mat as a weighing surface to allow animals to stand or sit safely while the animal's body weight is measured. A hold button provides a stable average so that the weight measurement results are not distorted when the animal moves.
