Bariatric scales allow healthcare professionals to easily weigh obese, unsteady, or disabled patients. Each medical bariatric scale features a low and spacious platform for patient comfort and reassurance. Weighing obese patients can present unique challenges and bariatric scales help overcome them.
Bariatric floor scales have wide, low-profile platforms that allow patients with balance issues to take a wide stance while the scale gives an accurate reading. Models are available with railings for patients that help patients feel more confident or that accommodate wheelchairs for patients with mobility-related disabilities. Without a bariatric scale, it can be difficult to get an accurate reading of a patient’s weight, and that can negatively impact the quality of care they receive.
We’re happy to “weigh in” on which bariatric scale model is right for your practice based on the patients you see and how much you’d like to spend.
