Detecto Scale (USA) - Detecto’s USA-made model BRW1000 portable digital wheelchair scale is designed specifically for bariatric-size wheelchair patients. The BRW1000 features a low-profile platform with two-way, easy-access integral ramps for efficient wheelchair loading. The digital scale’s spacious platform measures extra-large 40-inch wide by 32-inch deep dimensions to accommodate oversized bariatric wheelchairs. A non-skid rubber mat provides traction for patients standing barefoot or wheelchair tires to grip for assurance and stability.
The robust 1,000-lb / 450-kilogram capacity and extra-large platform size allows the BRW1000 to be used with patients in manual or power wheelchairs, dialysis patients, or walk-ons. Integral dual wheels and two carrying handles combine with a relatively-lightweight, 75-lb frame and battery operation to allow the BRW1000 rolling mobility for versatile weighing use. Simply lift up and easily transport the BRW1000 from location to location throughout a healthcare facility wherever it’s needed. The scale’s four USA-made stainless steel load cells feature self-aligning feet, so when the scale comes to rest from transport mode, it will find the most level surface for weighing.
The BRW1000 features Detecto’s USA-made MedVue digital weight indicator which provides brilliant blue LCD readouts with 7/8-in-high weight readouts and up to 14-digit patient IDs that may be entered via the indicator’s color-coded keypad. Weight, Height, and Body Mass Index patient measurement data may be output to EMR/EHR software through the indicator’s standard RS232 serial or USB ports, or through optional wired or Wi-Fi Ethernet connectivity.
The BRW1000 is part of Detecto’s Patriot line of USA-made clinical scales. From the stainless steel load cells to the MedVue digital weight indicator, the scale is completely manufactured in Webb City, Missouri at Detecto’s factory. This digital scale’s American-made quality is apparent throughout its construction.
