The patient can hold on to the hand rail to access or leave the scales, but also during the weighing. The pan, barely higher than the floor, makes access easy for the patient. It can also be moved easily by taking it by the handle cut into the pan. Electronic Indicator The reliability, accuracy and simplicity of use of the latest electronic equipment serves patients and nursing staff. It only takes three seconds to obtain accurate weighing results, the end of the weighing is signalled by a "beep". The appliance is equipped with the following standard functions: - TARE: enables the net weight of the patient to be discovered when the patient is weighed with a tare. - HOLD: maintains the weight display, during the whole duration of the weighing, from the time that the display is stabilised. - HOT: restarts the weighing without having to get off the scales. - FST: performs a stabilisation (anti-trembling). - BMI: calculates the body mass index (BMI). - MEM: displays the result of the last weighing which is stored in the memory. For the power supply, you can choose between the mains (with standard lead) or via the integrated battery (40h of autonomy) for several thousand weighings before having to reload it. Thanks to a high performance control and limitation system for the battery charge, you can leave the appliance plugged to the mains without particular precaution. It can be switched off either manually or automatically if running on battery. The foot switch is a standard fitting.
