Scales, Patient, Chair

Definition : Patient scales that include as integral parts a horizontal platform that is placed on the floor, a chair for the patient, and a vertical column with measuring, control, and/or display capabilities. Some models do not use platforms; instead, they incorporate the weighing mechanism under the seat of the chair and a control and display unit on the back of the chair. Chair scales usually have a weighing capacity of up to 150 to 300 kg (330 to 660 lb) and an accuracy of 100 g (0.25 lb). These scales may use mechanical, electromechanical, or electronic weighing technologies; they may also include an adjustable footrest to facilitate patient access. Chair scales are used for routine intermittent weighing of patients who cannot stand on a conventional scale.
