seca, out of Hamburg, Germany has released a new clinical chair scale, the seca 952, for disabled and elderly patients that have trouble standing up. The company promises an ergonomic design for both the patient and the clinician, making the weighing less strenuous for everyone involved.
Some of the features of the seca 952:
With a capacity of 200 kg and a graduation of 100 grams, the seca 952 fulfills all basic medical standards. Added to that are the typical seca advantages such as fold-up armrests and footrests, secure wheel brakes, an ergonomically shaped seat and smoothrunning rollers, which, together with the ergonomically shaped handle, make it very easy to push the chair scale.
Thanks to the fold-up armrests and footrests, elderly and heavy patients can take a seat on the scale easily and comfortably. It is just as easy for personnel to use the scale because the batteries eliminate the need for connection to an electrical outlet and keep on working through up to 4000 weighings. No time is lost
to a learning curve. A user can operate the scale intuitively. Display elements are conveniently located in the handle and can be set to show kilograms, pounds or stones.
