DETECTO’s model MB130 digital baby scale features an easy-to-read one-inch-high LCD with pounds and kilograms readouts for neonatal to pediatric measurement. Power is provided by either 9-volt battery (not included) or AC adapter (included). The auto shut-off after two minutes helps conserve battery life.
The convenient HOLD buttons on the scale (and also on the optional digital length measuring rod) retain the infant’s measurements on the display even after they are taken off the scale, so the patient can be attended to first before recording measurements.
The easy-to-clean plastic tray is ideal for sterile environments and features a roomy space that is 22-inch-wide by 11-inch-deep (56-cm-wide by 29-cmdeep) for babies to lay comfortably. The surface material is kind to the skin and is easy to disinfect.
The convenient Zero function allows the user to automatically subtract the weight of a blanket, toy, or diaper from the infant’s weight measurement. Weighing only 5 lbs, the MB130 is handy and lightweight for transporting to different locations. The optional carrying case eases portability and provides safe storage when not in use.
