One of a parents' first joys after delivering a child is learning the vital statistics of their newborn. Discerning the weight of an infant requires reliable pediatric scales. Scales intended for adults simply will not suffice, as they cannot accommodate tiny patients unable to stand like newborn scales can. Many of our infant scales also include length measuring tapes built into the unit.
Monitoring an infant's weight throughout their development is crucial in the understanding the overall health of the young child. Therefore pediatric baby scales are a must-have piece of equipment in delivery rooms, doctors' offices and clinics. The delivery room scales available through Universal Medical are both durable and accurate. Babies often wriggle while being weighed, thus throwing off the reading, many of the infant scales we offer are capable of averaging the weight of a moving child. The pediatric office scales can be easily cleaned and are lightweight for simple transport.
