Designed for fast, accurate weighing, Detecto 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. Dual tare functions let you subtract the weight of bedding. One nurse can quickly gather data from an entire floor, without wasted motion or patient discomfort. Safety features include locking casters and lockable base widening stance for stability.
