Scales, Patient, Bedside, Sling

Definition : Bedside scales designed to weigh the patient by lifting him or her from the bed, similar to the way a patient lift does. These scales consist of a sling (stretcher) that is positioned underneath the patient, hooks to lift the stretcher through eyelets in its sidebraces, and a cart that includes the lift mechanism (e.g., hydraulic, electrical), weighing unit, controls, and display. Activating the lift mechanism raises the sling and patient slightly off the bed, weighing nonambulatory patients with minimum discomfort.
