500KL Digital Fitness Scale resembles the mechanical physician scales, but offers digital technology and additional functions. It features a strong aluminum column & large, low-profile non-skid platform making it a strong and durable fitness scale. Health O Meter 500 KL fitness scales also feature a user-friendly interface with Body Mass Index (BMI), Hold/Release, Zero, KG/LB, Clear, and Enter functions for additional functionality that a mechanical fitness scale can't offer.
Health O Meter 500 KL electronic fitness scales weigh up to 500 pounds and increment 0.2 pounds (220 kg x 0.1 kg). These digital medical scales also are equipped with wheels making the scale more portable than similar scales currently on the market. This digital fitness scale runs on 6 AA cell batteries (not included) or an AC adapter.
Health-O-Meter brand medical scales are top of the line scales widely used by professionals in the health care industry. Be careful of inexpensive generic models because when parts break, or an AC adapter is lost, you will need to throw them away due to lack of product support. Caveat emptor, cheap, generic, medical scales do not offer all the functions included in Health-O-Meter's 500KL digital fitness scale, such as BMI or EMR. Health O Meter is the first physician scale manufacturer to provide an easy and complete solution for EMR developers and providers to integrate patient scales into their systems. This innovative software tool provides seamless communication between EMR applications and industry leading Health o meter Professional Medical Scales.
EMR Integration Kit is easy to use by both clinician and developer. Seamlessly launched directly from an EMR system, this program adds weight to the list of critical vital signs available for automatic acquisition. This helps close a potential source of medication errors caused by incorrectly recording weight.

PLEASE NOTE Transferring the weight of the patient to a computer requires serial communications software that needs to be installed on a computer and does not come with the scale. If you don't have EMR you could purchase WinWedge 32 Standard RS232 software allowing you to export patient's weight into an Excel spreadsheet for ease of documentation.
Electronic Medical Record (EMR) technology is supported by 500KL medical scales from Healthometer, but the EMR software itself is not included, and requires a specialist to configure. Precision Weighing Balances cannot offer these setup services. It is the responsibility of your own facility to hire a 3rd party consultant, or have an in-house professional perform the installation. Software setup is too complicated for the average computer user to install.
