Balance Beam Scales


30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee

Capture weight readings accurately and quickly with balance beam scales to monitor patients' progress to better health. The use of physician scales is a practice that's evolved over time with many technological advancements in the construction of weighing machines. Digital scales are starting to become more prominent in some clinics, but they may have their own drawbacks in terms of complete accuracy. The physician balance beam scale is one of the oldest pieces of equipment that exists in a clinical setting today. There is a good reason that labs and clinics still use these scales, which is due to their long history of accuracy and durability to everyday use.

Certain medical instruments see use on a daily basis such as stethoscopes and blood pressure cuffs, but they don't see nearly as much use as a scale does. Durable materials make up this weighing beam balance, meaning it should last for years with daily usage. The double beam balance scale works as the patient gets on the scale with the attendant sliding the weighted sliders to the numbers that balance the scale to get an accurate reading. You can find this scale and other medical supplies at CeilBlue™.
