With dialysis scale use on the rise, DETECTO has developed state-of-the-art stainless steel scale platforms and software specially designed for dialysis patient care. Patients that are ambulatory, using a walker or cane, and patients in wheelchairs and beds can easily access the weight platform that is installed flush with the floor surface. DETECTO offers 8 different models that are meant to fit many different apparatuses on the platform, such as stretchers and wheelchairs. The in-floor design is flush-mounted to the floor, and the indicators are placed within the facility’s wall to save valuable space for an integral, streamlined patient weighing operation. The flush mounting also eliminates trip hazards that could potentially cause issues with bed-bound and wheelchair-bound patients. For extra patient assurance, the Solace in-floor scales series can come available with a handrail on many models. The recessed indicator is easy to view and can print the patient’s weight on a ticket for patient records. All of these safety attributes allow patients seeking treatment with a safe environment to gather vital weight information when completing their dialysis appointments.

Solace In-Floor Dialysis Scales

DETECTO’s Solace series in-floor dialysis scales are flush-mounted platform scales that feature stainless steel decks and include a pit frame, trim ring, and interface cable to the included multi-color, touchscreen LCD indicator and printer. The flush surface eliminates tripping hazards and hallway accessibility issues. The Solace series is available with or without a handrail and all models include a recessed-mount indicator and ticket printer combination. These in-floor scales with high 1,000-lb x 0.2-lb/450-kg x 0.1-kg capacity easily accommodate patients with walkers, canes, wheelchairs, dialysis chairs, and the 6 x 4 ft. size even accommodates stretchers. The Solace series comes in 8 standard models to choose from with 3 x 3 ft, 4 x 3 ft, 4 x 4 ft, and 6 x 4 ft stainless steel platform sizes (custom sizes/configurations available).
