Wheelchair Scales. (Product Watch).

Tanita Corporation has several new hospital scales available for long-term care, The 2450T Wheelchair Scale and 2600T Large Wheelchair Scale feature increased portability because of their lightweight, foldable designs, the capability to weigh wheelchair-bound residents, and safety features such as sturdy handrails and low platforms.

The 2450T Wheelchair Scale allows healthcare professionals to take the scale anywhere the wheelchair-bound resident might reside, It can accommodate wheelchair widths from 21.5" to 29.75", yet folds down for easy portability. With an oversized folding ramp, the 2600T wheelchair scale accommodates extra-wide bariatric wheelchairs, as well as geriatric recliners for larger patients. The scale's lightweight design and foldable 32" x 34" platform make it suitable for acute and long-term healthcare facilities. Designed to fit through almost any doorway, the 2600T offers a weight capacity of 800 pounds. Standard features on both scales include auto-tare, auto-zero, and auto-weigh.
