This video will guide you through the installation and set-up of a USA-made DETECTO model 7550 Wheelchair Scale. This digital wheelchair scale is equipped with a folding platform that is secured to a nearby wall. Key processes covered in this installation video include unpacking the box contents, mounting the scale bracket to the wall, setting the scale onto the wall bracket, connecting the digital weight indicator, and lowering the folding platform for initial weighing use.
This video demonstrates how easy it is to use DETECTO’s USA-made model 7550 digital wheelchair scale. This scale features a spacious 32.3 x 33 inch (82 x 84 cm) fold-up weighing platform complete with built-in two-way access ramps that accommodate most wheelchairs. Equipped with a MedVue indicator that offers BMI, 14-digit patient IDs, 99 tare weight storage, 1LOOK display, EMR/EHR-ready RS232 serial and USB ports, as well as optional Wi-Fi connectivity. The high 1,000 lb x 0.02 lb/450 kg x 0.01 kg capacity will accommodate bariatric patient weighing.
DETECTO’s 7550 digital wheelchair scale offers multiple ways to quickly and easily tare the weight of a wheelchair, which means to remove that wheelchair weight from the equation and arrive at the patient’s actual weight for recording the measurement. As shown in the video, this may be accomplished through the scale’s pushbutton or keypad TARE functions. Additionally, the video demonstrates ID storage and recall functionality available through the scale’s intuitive USA-made MedVue digital indicator.
