Health o meter Professional Scales Introduces New Antimicrobial Scale

Health o meter Professional Scales announces the market's first and only professional scale with antimicrobial* surface technology. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year two million hospital patients contract a Healthcare Acquired Infection, costing the hospitals an estimated $45 billon annually and leading to 100,000 patient deaths.** Health o meter Professional Scales has developed the new 3001KL-AM Antimicrobial scale as a helpful tool in the fight against Healthcare Acquired Infections. This new scale features DupontTM Alesta AM patented*** antimicrobial powder coating on the scale's handrails and transport handle. This unique powder coating uses silver ionic technology that can suppress the growth of microorganisms and limit the transmission of harmful microbes, helping reduce patient and staff exposure to various bacteria and viruses.

This new Antimicrobial scale also includes important Patient Safety features such as a low profile platform and "live" handrails. Additionally, healthcare professionals will value the scale's transport handle and rugged, scuff-proof wheels for their durability and convenience. The new 3001KL-AM also includes beneficial features that come standard on Health o meter Professional digital scales such as Body Mass Index functionality, EMR connectivity, and an industry leading 1,000 lb / 454 kg capacity. Special options for this scale include a mechanical height rod, and for a limited time only, customers can have the scale shipped to their facility pre-assembled - at no extra charge!

Health o meter Professonal Scales Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ken Harris says, "We recognize that Infection Control is a serious issue in the healthcare industry and are proud to offer the new 3001KL-AM Antimicrobial scale. This scale is another valuable tool for medical facilities to help reduce patients' exposure to dangerous microorganisms."
