What is the maximum weight for a bariatric scale?

Bariatric scales are designed for heavier patients. They feature a large surface, with a high load-bearing capacity - this varies with each scale. The SECA 635 Class III Wireless Platform and Bariatric Scale features a weighing range of up to 300 kg.

What does the Breast-Milk-Intake-Function do?

Many of the SECA baby scales feature a Breast milk intake (BMIF) measurement functionality - determining how much milk the baby has consumed. This is so the weight of the baby recorded, before feeding, can be subtracted from the weight recorded after they have breast fed. This is all done at the touch of a button automatically.

What is the benefit of the integrated measuring rod?

The SECA 233 measuring rod is for the SECA 376 scales. It features an integrated head and foot positioner, turning scales into a complete weighing and measuring system. This means weighing and measuring can be completed in a single time-saving step.

What are medical scales?

Medical scales are weighing scales used in a medical environment. They are professional-grade and provide a high degree of accuracy and reliability.

What is a class III approved scale?

A Class III approved scale is a scale that has been approved by the NAWI (Non Automatic Weighing Instrument) directive. 

There are separate classes governing this - 1 to 4. Class III approvals include medical weighing machines.

Weighing scales to be used in a medical environment, such as hospital, clinic, GP surgery, care home, should always be Class III approved. Scales that are not Class III approved are not suitable for clinical use.

Which medical scales are the most accurate?

Class III approved medical scales are accurate and reliable, and are likely to be more accurate than home scales.
