The Health-O-Meter 524KL digital baby scale is their latest model for weighing infants with precision. The dual range resolution give your more precision when weighing babies below 20 pounds. If you were to weigh a newly born infant, your pediatric scale would weigh 20 lb x 0.2 oz, but once you go over the 20 pound threshold, your resolution will decrease to 0.5 ounce graduations, giving you readings at 20 lb - 50 lb x 0.5 oz.
Professional scales for weighing infants can cost over a thousand dollars. Health-O-Meter's new 524KL baby scale is much more reasonably priced, and even offers EMR connectivity via USB port. Please keep in mind that this newborn scale can be connected to an existing electronic medical record system, however the EMR software and configuration is your own responsibility. Precision Weighing Balances does not provide this software or service, and must be done either in-house, or by a company specializing in EMR services.
Transferring the weight of the baby to a computer requires communications software that needs to be installed on a computer and does not come with the scale.
For more information we recommend before you purchase the scale that you visit Healthometer's Connectivity Solutions for additional info on the available software development kit offered by Healthometer.
