Frequent weight checks of frail, handicapped, elderly, and dialysis patients can be a tremendous time-consuming task without the proper equipment. Detecto simplifies the task with a selection of innovative-designed USA-made mechanical chair scales with wheels. The 475 has a plastic-molded seat for patient comfort complete with with lift-away armrests on both sides and a fold-up footrest for easy access during patient transfers from a wheelchair or hospital bed. The die-cast, dual-sided weigh beam is readable from either side and features white enamel finish. Quality steel construction is apparent throughout the scale, especially in the heavy-duty understructure which is designed for optimal strength and patient safety.
