A quick guide to physician scales

Designed for use in clinics, rehabilitation centres, aged care facilities, sports training centres, fitness facilities and gyms, physician scales are high quality weighing scales that give precise and accurate weight information.

Choosing the right scale would depend on the application. For example, for a fitness centre or a weight loss clinic, scales with BMI calculation will be used for weight checking. A paediatrician’s office would need baby scales to weigh newborns, infants and toddlers, while a physician’s office may use scales with height rod to measure growth. For diet and fitness management purposes, a robust scale with higher capacity and smaller increments will be a good pick.

At Anyscales, we supply top quality physician scales and balances that are suitable for these purposes, keeping in line with the standards for healthcare and medical practice in Australia.

    During the weighing process:

  • The person being weighed should remove shoes and heavy clothing such as jackets
  • The person being weighed should try to remain as still as possible until the weight is recorded
  • If height is being measured, the person should be standing straight, with feet stable on the scale

    After the weighing process:

  • Make sure all relevant results and information have been recorded
