DETECTO has completely upgraded the standard platform on the popular model 6550 portable wheelchair scale to increase time-saving and patient comfort benefits. The 6550’s new black platform has been expanded to an even more spacious 32 inch x 36 inch (81 cm x 91 cm) platform size that is only 2.2 inches (56 mm) high for easy patient accessibility and comfort while weighing. The dual ramps have been expanded to 8 inches long each and they now set on the floor to ease patient mobility on and off the scale. This improvement means only half the effort is necessary for a healthcare professional to pull a wheelchair patient onto the scale versus other competitive scales.
DETECTO’s 6550 wheelchair scale offers an easily-collapsible column, so with only one hand you can quickly slide the release lever and fold down the column for effortless transport or vertical storage. The 6550 vertical fold-up feature means only minimal floor space is required for storage in an upright position when not in use. Enjoy the time-saving benefits of single-pass weighing with this scale by using the convenient pushbutton or keypad tare to remove the wheelchair weight.
The 6550 features a high 1,000 lb / 450 kg capacity, optional Wi-Fi for EMR/EHR, two-way built-in ramps for accessibility from both sides, clinical-grade accuracy to 0.2 lb / 0.1 kg, battery or AC power, and up to 99 tares (optional) to store wheelchair weights for efficient patient weighing. The Hold/Release key holds the patient weight after leaving the scale for better patient care. The 6550 wheelchair scale is available for purchase through DETECTO’s worldwide network of clinical dealers.
