Health o meter® Professional Scales announces two new height rod options for the Antimicrobial 3001 series scales, a digital height rod 245EHR-3001 and an enhanced mechanical height rod 3001HR. Both height rods have quick and easy to assemble brackets. The 245EHR-3001 market-leading digital height rod provides the most accurate height measurement in its class, with a graduation/resolution of 1mm / 0.1” and a full measuring range of 11 ¾” – 79 ½” / 30cm – 202cm. The new accessory uses solid-state technology, which provides a facility confidence that a patient’s height will be measured accurately, and workflow will not be interrupted. The built-in reset feature increases accuracy and reliability, and the folding headpiece limits the height rod’s profile, providing safety to patients and caregivers.
The 3001HR is a durable aluminum height rod that withstands frequent use, and rigorous laboratory testing shows that it lasts 2 ½ times longer than similar products. The easy-to-use smooth sliding headpiece and telescoping rod allow the caregiver to read the height measurement quickly and easily. The folding headpiece limits the height rod’s profile, providing safety to patients and caregivers. The 3001HR has an extensive measuring range of 2”-90” in 1/16” increments (6 cm-230cm in 1mm increments).
