Wheelchair Weigh Service

The weight of a person is important to their health. Monitoring changes in weight is recognised to be good practice.

However weighing can be difficult for those whose mobility problems make it impossible for them to use conventional weigh scales. This can mean relying on estimates or “making do” with equipment of variable accuracy.

Weighing Scale

  • The platform weigh scale at ARCOS complies with the non-automatic weighing instruments regulations 2000.
  • It is easy to use and accurate.
  • It allows a wheelchair user to be weighed seated in their wheelchair and an ARCOS occupational therapist is on hand to help.

 

The weigh scale service will be available by arrangement, normally on Fridays 10.30 – 13.30. Contact us for an appointment to use the SECA 677 Wireless Wheelchair Scales.

Oliver's Story

Life before the children’s therapy that ARCOS has provided was very hard for Oliver and me. He struggled with so many things, hated change with a passion, and hardly ever wanted attention or cuddles…
