Column Scales for accurate weighing and measuring of patients during a healthcare assessment.
Column scales, also known as height and weight scales or medical column scales, are comprehensive weighing devices that incorporate both weight and height measurements in a single unit. This types of medical scale typically consist of a sturdy platform for weight measurement and a vertical column with a measuring rod attached. Users can stand on the platform while their weight is measured, and the measuring rod allows for accurate height assessment. Column scales are commonly used in healthcare settings, such as hospitals and clinics, for routine health assessments, tracking growth in children, and determining body mass index (BMI). They provide a convenient and efficient solution for obtaining important anthropometric measurements in one integrated device.
