Scales are utilized both by individuals in every age and stage of life, as well as by healthcare facilities. Unintentional weight loss and gain is common in people of any age but is especially prevalent in seniors. Extreme weight gain or loss can oftentimes indicate a health issue, so watching one’s weight is important for your well-being.
There are two primary types of scales available; medical scales and floor scales. Medical scales are most often utilized in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and rehab centers, while bathroom floor scales can be found in nearly every household in the US.
There are various different kinds of scales within these two categories, all with different features and benefits. Some scales, such as 2-piece scales with a digital view, the Health O Meter Digital Scale, and talking scales, allow people to check their weight without looking down. Eye level scales allow for this as well, since they can show you your weight even as you look straight ahead. Other scales feature a BMI calculator, which measures your height based on your weight, and determines if there is a healthy balance.
Then there are bariatric scales, bathroom scales, digital remote scales, wheelchair scales, and body analyzer scales. The following are some of the most popular scales available today:
