Detecto 6550 is Portable, Folds for Easy Storage

The Detecto 6550 folding, portable bariatric 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 loading from either side.
The 6550's vertical fold-up feature and heavy-duty wheels contribute to its ease of mobility and lack of needed storage space.
The large, reportedly easily accessed weighing platform and low angle ramps make the 6550 ideal for patient comfort and security and its digital weight indicator features a standard serial port for data output to a printer or a PC-based 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. Capacity is 800 pounds.
