DETECTO’s 6880 chair scale is the simple solution for patients with decreased mobility. The 6880’s retractable padded armrests and footrest ease in transferring patients into and out of the chair scale for weighing. Patients can sit in comfort in the ergonomic seat during the weighing process while healthcare professionals will enjoy the intuitive user interface that simplifies operation. The vivid 0.75 in / 19 mm high LCD display is easily readable in a variety of lighting conditions. Connected models include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity with EMR/EHR systems. The 6880 features 550 lb x 0.2 lb / 250 kg x 0.1 kg capacity, oversized 3 in/8 cm diameter dual wheels for transport, 12 AA batteries (not included) or AC power (AC adapter included on some models), and a stylish black paint color that blends into any healthcare environment. The smart-phone-style indicator offers large-size readouts, battery level indication, and easy-to-use keypad with six buttons. Dual smooth-running wheels on the back two legs of the scale allow medical personnel to tilt the scale back and push it to other areas wherever needed. The ergonomically-shaped padded handles make it very easy to push the chair scale. This maneuverability allows the scale to be used in multiple departments. Standing up on a scale can be difficult for patients who are physically disabled or in long-term care. DETECTO’s 6880 chair scale is of great benefit to patients and medical staff in nursing homes, hospitals, geriatrics, and orthopedic departments. The 6880 is equipped with a TARE function which allows blankets, electronics, or other items held by the patient to be removed from the patient’s weight. The HOLD key allows the medical personnel to take care of the patient first and record the measurements later.
