Bed Lift Weighing System.

The Eze Weigh 590 weighing system was designed to alleviate the often problematic but necessary task of obtaining accurate weights in a timely manner without disturbing the resident.

Now residents can be weighed without touching or moving them. Eze Weigh 590 is not only cost-effective, but is fast and accurate. This scale significantly reduces the time needed to obtain weights, thereby allowing nursing hours to be redirected to direct resident care. The scale rolls under and lifts the bed, giving the net patient weight accurately, efficiently and in a resident friendly manner.

A significant reduction in injuries is associated with obtaining weights with the Eze Weigh 590 scale.
