Scales, Patient, Bedside

Definition : Scales designed to weigh prone or supine patients by placing them on either a weighboard or a sling attached to a moving unit that includes the weighing mechanism. Bedside scales usually have a weighing capacity of up to 200 kg (440 lb) and an accuracy of 100 g (0.25 lb). These scales may use mechanical, electromechanical, or electronic technologies; some of them are portable, battery-powered units, and other models are line powered as well. Most of these scales are used for periodic weight assessment of bedridden patients.
