The Detecto 8430 Waist-High Physician Scale

The heavy-duty understructure of this digital waist-high scale incorporates a fabricated lever system that is enhanced by precision-ground, pressed-in knife edges which eliminate friction. This scale also features "at-a-glance" convenience of the battery-powered LCD display. The height rod is black with white numerals and are graduated in both inches and centimeters.

Display functions include auto off/release of display, automatic zero, and motion detection. With the push of a button, readings appear in pounds OR kilograms. The 8430 features Body Mass Index calculation. The platform cover is easily removed for cleaning.

The new MedVue Weight Indicator includes RS232 serial port, USB, or optional Ethernet output for data transfer to a printer or a PC-based EMR (electronic medical record) software program. With the new time/date feature, the scale can send the weight, time, date, BMI (Body Mass Index), and height directly to a printer or a PC. The ability to print or save weight data with the MedVue is a real time saving device for clinics, doctor's offices, long-term care facilities, and other medical institutions. For example, in long-term care facilities and nursing homes, the assessment of patients' weight is crucial to reimbursement from Medicare/Medicaid. Monitoring and documenting of weight is also important to renal departments, weight loss clinics, and other specialized departments.
