Medical Scales

I took a tour recently of a local pediatrician office. Unlike the other people on the tour, I was actually sneaking a peek at what scales the doctor’s office had.  I was able to see a digital Detecto Medical scale along with a couple of digital baby scales. There was also a separate stand alone height rod in the weighing station for the kids.  All the weighing equipment seemed to be in good condition and it appeared that the scales had calibration stickers on them stating that the scales had been checked for accuracy on a consistent basis.

Ready, Set, HIKE!!!

It’s that time of the year again — Football season!  Anticipation is extremely high for players, fans, etc… as everyone looks forward to having a successful 2006-2007 season. One of the tools that athletic departments need from junior high, to high school, college, and professional football is a nice weighing scale.

Coaches and athletic trainers are always trying to keep an eye on players health and weight.  Having a reliable scale is a must. Also, think about when you read about your favorite team in a preseason publication or in a game program, you usually see the player’s weights listed. Scales are an important part of sports. We offer several different types of weigh scales, perfect for athletics. A lot of folks choose the old and trusty physician mechanical scale.  Others like the idea of a portable system that they can carry or easily move from location to location.  We’ve also seen departments buy scales with handrails to ease the entry/exit of the weigh platform.  Finally, the standard digital scale system.

These aren’t the only scales we offer — but they are good scales that have proven to be reliable choices in the past. Be sure to get your team going the right “weigh” today!
