The Seca 213 mobile stadiometer weighs 2.4 kg only and is appropriate for field use as well as for private clinics and pediatric hospitals. The measuring rod is easy to set up and can also be dismantled. The rod is kept straight and stable by the spacer without any fittings. The result is easy to read since the scale is seen on the measuring rod's side. This guarantees that results are precise up to a height of 205 cm.
