Overview

DETECTO’s model 7550 wall-mount wheelchair scale features a unique fold-up storage design that saves space when not in use. It can be installed directly in high-traffic areas and work zones and fold up when done weighing without using up valuable floor space. This retains patient dignity by weighing in open commons areas instead of backrooms or closets. The wall-mount scale stores easily out of the way and aesthetically blends into any environment for a more efficient workflow. The 7550 easily accommodates most wheelchairs, and yet requires very little floor space when folded up.

Bluetooth 5.0 / Wi-Fi are included standard for wireless connectivity with EMR/EHR systems and the scale also includes RS232 serial and USB ports. The stylish gray color allows the 7550 scale to integrate into any healthcare environment. The 7550 features a 1,000 lb x 0.2 lb / 450 kg x 0.1 kg capacity, touch-screen LCD, 36 in W x 33 in D / 91 cm W x 84 cm D weighing platform, and sturdy steel construction for long-lasting durability over a lifetime of use.

DETECTO’s 7550 incorporates an iPhone-like touchscreen LCD that allows you to enter up to 8-digit patient IDs that can be sent along with patient weight data to EMR systems via USB, RS232, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 5.0. The 7550’s display is a 3.2 in (diagonal) full-color TFT with 320 x 240 resolution for easy-to-read text explanations of various functions and large, vivid weight readouts. The integrated full-color, touchscreen LCD offers wheelchair tare weight mode to remove wheelchair weights and factor patient weight (pushbutton and keypad tare). The scale is powered by 6 C batteries (not included) or an AC adapter (included on some models). It may be used on carpet or hard floor surfaces.

The 7550’s slim 7-inch / 18-cm profile takes up minimal space when installed in a medical facility hallway, clinical office, long-term care center, or nursing home. When you’re ready to weigh, simply lower the platform and the gas spring lifting mechanism will gently lower it into place. The 7550’s 1.5-inch/38-mm high platform is very low to the ground for easy patient access. This makes the process simple and minimal effort required in order to roll a patient on and off the weighing platform.
