More Details

Detecto apex® Digital Physician Scales with Sonar Height Rods offer a completely hands free experience when measuring the weight, height, and body mass index (BMI) of patients. The Digital Clinical Scale features a unique stadiometer which uses sonar technology. The use of sonar allows medical professionals to accurately measure a patient's height without having to adjust a manual stadiometer. Detecto apex-sh® Professional Scales are ideal for all medical facilities and help users reduce germ transmission with hands-free operation.

The digital stadiometer can measure patient heights from 24" (60 cm) to 86" (218 cm) while the Digital Physician Scale has a weight capacity of 600 lbs (300 kg) with a graduation of 0.2 lbs (0.1 kg). Detecto's StableSENSE® technology provides accurate results, even for patients who have difficulty remaining steady. Results are displayed in big bold characters on the LCD Display which is conveniently located at eye level. Users can choose whether they want results to be displayed in imperial (lbs/inches) or metric (kg/cm) units. Other Apex® functions include the ability to lock on results for an extended period time as well as zero before use.

The Detecto apex® can be powered by either an AC adapter, which is included with some apex® models, or 12 AA batteries (not included). See ACCESSORIES Below for additional AC Adapters. When powered by batteries, the display on the Medical Scale features a battery level indicator which lets users know how much battery power is remaining. The Digital Scale has two rear wheels which allow for easy transporting as well as bubble level indicator at the bottom of the durable column which helps identify level surfaces. The base is extra-wide to meet the needs of bariatric patients and features a removable cover for easy cleaning and also provides access to the battery compartment.

The Bariatric Scale features 1 USB-B port for connecting with PCs and is HL7 IEEE 11073 compliant. Detecto also offers additional connectivity upgrades for the apex® including Wi-FI Ethernet connectivity. The Apex® Digital Scale assembles easily out of the box without any additional tools.

Detecto apex® Clinical Scales are proudly made in the USA of American and foreign components.
