The Importance of Medical Scale Calibration
Medical scale calibration requires NIST Certified calibration weights to properly weigh in medical settings.
Certified calibration weights are ideal weights to use for patient scale calibration. They ensure your scale is calibrated properly and ready for the requirements of weighing in medical settings.
Weights for Medical Scale Calibration
Consumer weights such as barbells or similar items may not provide an accurate weight to calibrate your scale. For example, a 5-pound consumer weight, such as a barbell, may actually weigh between 4.75 and 5.25 pounds. Certified calibration weights have a manufactured and adjusted tolerance of ± 230 milligrams. A certified calibration weight will ensure your scale is calibrated correctly and presents accurate weighments for proper patient care. Use ASTM Class 6, grip handle, cast iron calibration weights for both imperial or metric medical scales.
Rice Lake Weighing Systems offers a wide range of certified calibration weights designed to verify the accuracy of your medical scale. Visit www.ricelake.com/precision to determine the best calibration equipment for your health scale.
