Product Description

DETECT's model 7550 Wall-Mount Digital Wheelchair Scale features a unique fold-up storage design that saves space when not in use. The 7550 easily accommodates most wheelchairs, and yet requires very little floor space when folded up. The slim 6.6" profile takes up minimal space when installed in a medical facility hallway, clinical office, or patient room. When you're ready to weigh, simply lower the platform and the gas spring lifting mechanism will gently lower it into place. The patient may be easily rolled onto the scale, and a platform lip will hold the wheelchair securely in place for weighing.
