Scale Offers Safety Features, Swivel Display

The Model 684 by Seca facilitates safe weighing while the patient is standing, sitting or in a wheelchair — without having to be converted. When standing the patient is supported by a stable handrail; when sitting, by an integrated folded seat; and when in a wheelchair by a large platform — the weight of the wheelchair is simply tared away by the pre-tare function. Special attention has been given to make the scale easy to access; a stop barrier for the front wheels of the wheelchair is an additional safety feature. Results are easy for patient and caregiver to read from the swiveling display mounted at a convenient level.
