The 500KL is the #1 selling physician scale in North America. With a built-in height rod, the scale enhances workflow by measuring weight and height and calculating Body Mass Index without moving the patient.

500KL Digital Fitness Scale resembles the mechanical physician scales, but offers digital technology and additional functions. It features a strong aluminum column & large, low-profile non-skid platform making it a strong and durable fitness scale. Health O Meter 500 KL fitness scales also feature a user-friendly interface with Body Mass Index (BMI), Hold/Release, Zero, KG/LB, Clear, and Enter functions for additional functionality that a mechanical fitness scale can't offer.

Health O Meter 500 KL electronic fitness scales weigh up to 500 pounds and increment 0.2 pounds (220 kg x 0.1 kg). This digital medical scale also is equipped with wheels making the scale more portable than similar scales currently on the market. This digital fitness scale runs on 6 AA-cell batteries (included) or 120V AC adapter ADPT31 (not included).

Health-O-Meter brand medical scales are top of the line scales widely used by professionals in the health care industry. Be careful of inexpensive generic models because when parts break, or an AC adapter is lost, you will need to throw them away due to lack of product support. Caveat emptor, cheap, generic, medical scales do not offer all the functions included in Health-O-Meter's 500KL digital fitness scale, such as BMI or EMR. Health O Meter is the first physician scale manufacturer to provide an easy and complete solution for EMR developers and providers to integrate patient scales into their systems. This innovative software tool provides seamless communication between EMR applications and industry leading Health o meter Professional Medical Scales.

EMR Integration Kit is easy to use by both clinician and developer. Seamlessly launched directly from an EMR system, this program adds weight to the list of critical vital signs available for automatic acquisition. This helps close a potential source of medication errors caused by incorrectly recording weight.

Healthometer 500KL electronic stand-on scale with eye level weigh indicator and features a USB interface for EMR connectivity. Since the 500KL comes standard with the height built into the column calculating and BMI (body mass index) is simple to perform.

You might have noticed the 500KL looks similar to the Healthometer 499KL and 498KL so let the scale experts at tell you the differences.

Healthometer 500KL has an eye level weigh indicator (floor to top of indicator is 53.6") and has built-in height rod in the scale column.

Healthometer 499KL has an waist high weigh indicator (floor to top of indicator is 43") and no height rod.

Healthometer 498KL has remote weigh indicator on a 6 foot cord that can be wall or desk mounted. There is no height rod included with the 498KL.

Transferring the weight of the patient to a computer requires serial communications software that needs to be installed on a computer and does not come with the scale. If you don't have EMR you could purchase WinWedge 32 Standard software allowing you to export patient's weight into an Excel spreadsheet for ease of documentation.

Electronic Medical Record (EMR) technology is supported by 500KL medical scales from Healthometer, but the EMR software itself is not included, and requires a specialist to configure. Precision Weighing Balances cannot offer these setup services. It is the responsibility of your own facility to hire a 3rd party consultant, or have an in-house professional perform the installation. Software setup is too complicated for the average computer user to install.
