This sturdy, but lightweight, scale offers a wide range of versatility. It can be used with wheelchairs, straight-legged chairs or as a stand-on scale, and its sloped ramps offer versatility by allowing loading from either side. The 6550's vertical fold-up feature and heavy-duty wheels contribute to its ease of mobility and lack of needed storage space. With the 6550, tare weight may be either preset or keyed in directly and the patients weight is automatically displayed. The digital display makes it easy to view from wide angles. The large, easily accessed weighing platform and low angle ramps make the 6550 ideal for patient comfort and security.
