Detecto Digital Portable Stretcher Scale

DETECTO's Stretcher Scale is ideal for emergency arrivals into a hospital when time is of the essence for gathering patient weights. The DETECTO model 8500 can be used in the ER, dialysis, long-term care, and nursing homes.

DETECTO's Stretcher Scale is engineered and manufactured at a light enough weight that it is easily portable to lift up and roll by nursing professionals. The model 8500 is 115 lb/52 kg net weight and the slim profile scale design fits easily through doorways of nearly any size. The scale's relatively low net weight, wheels, and guide handles all combine to make it easy to maneuver.

DETECTO's Stretcher Scale has a 2-inch-high, low-profile platform with textured mat surface. The two-way-access ramps rest on the floor making it easy to roll patients onto the scale platform. The single-pass weighing feature saves time by allowing you to enter the stretcher or wheelchair tare weight using the numeric keypad on the indicator. You may also use the convenient pushbutton tare feature to remove the stretcher or wheelchair weight if you don't know the weight already.
