Product Description

The Adam Equipment MDW-160M mechanical physician scale measures the weight of a subject up to 160kg with an accuracy of 100g (also called readability), and the attached measuring rod can measure the height of a subject in 0.5-centimeter increments up to 210 centimeters for a comprehensive physical assessment. The platform measures 275 x 375mm (W x D), and has a top tread plate with a nonslip surface for safety. The metal base creates a durable foundation for use in gyms and hospitals, and provides stability for increased accuracy. The mechanical operation eliminates the need for an external power supply or batteries, and the built-in rear wheels make this scale easily portable to different work areas. The adjustable zero point calibrates the scale externally so that the graduated balance masses provide accurate and reliable readings in kilograms or pounds.


Maximum capacity 160kg
Readability 100g

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Scales and balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, using infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a computer.

Adam Equipment manufactures balances, scales, and related accessories for laboratory, educational, industrial, retail, and medical applications. The company, which was founded in the United Kingdom in 1972 and has an office in Danbury, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards.
