Detecto 6856 Waist-High, Stand-on Bariatric Scale

Heavy duty, yet lightweight, the Detecto 6856 bariatric scale’s balanced design reportedly makes it easy to move.

Detecto’s 6856 is engineered specifically for weighing obese and unsteady patients and features a 24-inch square, low-profile platform with nonskid surface and sturdy handrails with padded grips. The scale’s capacity is 800 pounds.

The scale can be powered by either AA batteries or an AC adapter. The 6856 also has an auto-off function to conserve energy.
Created for clinical applications, Detecto’s model 6800 scale is low profile for patient comfort when stepping on and off the scale. With a built-in carrying handle, the model 6800 scale is easy to transport from office to office when required. Utilizing Detecto’s model 750 weight display and a universal bracket, the indicator may be mounted on a wall or desk for easy viewing. Powered by AA batteries, this scale is truly portable when power outlets are not accessible.
