Pelstar LLC, manufacturer of Health o meter® Professional Scales, introduces the new 3001KL-AMX Antimicrobial Digital Platform Scale with Extended Handrails. An addition to the Health o meter® Professional line of antimicrobial scales, the 3001KL-AMX can be a valuable tool in the fight against Healthcare Associated Infections. The antimicrobial powder coating on the handrails and transport handle suppresses the growth of bacteria and helps protect against cross-contamination. Unique to the 3001KL-AMX are its extended handrails that reach farther out alongside the platform. The handrails provide extra support and help patients maintain balance when stepping onto the platform.
“We were pleased at how quickly the market adopted our 3001KL-AM antimicrobial scale, but we learned that some customers believe longer handrails are even better – giving patients an extra sense of security. We listened to our customers and developed the 3001KL-AMX. Our engineering team designed the handrails in such a way that the scale feels like a safe place for a patient to stand…and so far the market is responding positively. One of our customers, a large university-based hospital system, has committed to replacing all their stand-on scales with the 3001KL-AMX,” said Rosalyn Ben-Chitrit, VP of product management and business development. “We couldn’t be more pleased.”
This new antimicrobial scale 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 3001KL-AMX also includes other beneficial features that come standard on Health o meter® Professional platform scales such as Body Mass Index calculation, EMR connectivity, and a high 1,000 lb/ 454 kg capacity.
