Physician scales are available with many different designs and features sought after by hospitals, clinics, or health clubs. Choose from digital waist high scales or eye-level scales. Some feature BMI and memory recall functions. Whether you need a physician scale for the doctor’s office, or a fitness scale for the gym, we have plenty of digital and mechanical beam scales from name brands like Cardinal Detecto.

Designed for fast, accurate weighing, these electronic in-bed scales feature a flame retardant, antibacterial, self-deodorizing stretcher which is placed under the patient and hydraulically lifted inches from the bed. The touch of a button gives a digital readout of the patient’s weight, in pounds or kilograms. The reading doesn’t require subtractions to account for bed-weight or bedding. Quickly gather data from an entire floor, without wasted motion or patient discomfort!

This incredibly popular, lightweight scale offers a wide range of versatility. It can be used with wheelchairs, straight-legged chairs or as a stand-on scale, and its sloped ramps offer versatility by allowing entry from either side. The 6550′s digital weight indicator is the industry’s most advanced, featuring serial, USB and optional wired and Wi-Fi Ethernet output, BMI calculation, yellow “quick keys” for basic weighing, 350-degree rotating mounting bracket for viewing in all angles, and an easy-to-read blue LCD display.

Detecto’s model 6745 Digital Baby Scale has a lock-in weight feature which compensates for typical newborn movement. When weight stabilizes, it is “locked in” and displayed. The infant can be removed and its weight is retained. The scale features a built-in battery charger, battery or AC power, a built-in measuring tape, and a large 1.0” high transflective LCD display. Serial output allows the scale to be connected to a printer or PC.
