Virtually every visit to the doctor’s office, whether it’s a specialty clinic or a general checkup, involves a weigh-in. At the most basic level, this is a simple procedure. However, factors such as a patient’s size and physical limitations play a part in determining what model of clinical scale is best for your practice.
Today we’ll look at the features of four of our top scales.

For high-traffic clinics and even fitness centers where you don’t need to do more than weigh or measure a patient, this is the ideal mechanical scale.
