  • I’m trying to mount one of your stadiometers to the wall, but the numbering on the stadiometer does not match-up with the tape measure I’m using – is there something I’m missing?
The numbers on the stadiometer are offset to compensate for the space used by the headpiece. Due to this offset design, a tape measure placed in parallel with the stadiometer, when properly mounted to the wall, will not exactly match-up with the numbers on the stadiometer. Please consult the instructions for the installation of the height measurement device you purchased. If additional clarification or help is needed, feel free to call and speak with a member of our Technical Service department.

  • Do products that have batteries come with batteries included?
Yes, batteries are included. Most of our scales use standard size AA batteries. Our home/bathroom category of digital scales use size AAA batteries. Some of our larger medical multifunction scales use special rechargeable battery packs that do not need to be replaced; on those units the included AC adapter acts as a charger to both power the device and also recharges the internal rechargeable battery pack. Once charged, the internal battery pack can power the scale for several weeks or much longer depending on use.
