By purchasing the seca 767 electronic personal scale, you have acquired a highly-accurate and sturdy piece of equipment. seca has been putting its experience at the service of health for over 150 years now, and as market leader in many countries of the world, is always setting new standards with its innovative developments for weighing and measuring. In accordance with national regulations, the seca 767 electronic personal scale is used primarily in hospitals, doctors’ surgeries and in-patient nursing facilities. The weight display can be switched between kilogrammes (kg), pounds (lbs) and stones (sts). Weight is determined within a few seconds. In addition to the conventional determination of weight, the seca 767 also has a function for determining body mass index. For this purpose, height is entered on the keypad and the body mass index associated with the weight value is output. Its low power consumption means that with a set of batteries, the seca 767 can be used on a mobile basis for long periods. 2.

The scale is then automatically set to zero and ready to use. – If necessary, switch the weight display (see page 17). – Stand on the scale and keep still. – Read the weighing result off the digital display. – If a load greater than 200 kg or 450 lbs is placed on the scale, St0P appears in the display. Switching the weight display The weight display can be switched between kilogrammes (kg) and pounds (lbs) or between kilogrammes (kg) and stones (sts). – Switch on the scale using the green Start key. Weight is initially displayed in the last setting selected. – To switch the weight display between kilogrammes and pounds, press the kg/ lbs/sts key. – The kg or lbs display lights up. – To switch weight display between pounds and stones, hold down the kg/lbs/sts key for approx. 2 seconds. The lbs or sts display lights up. Automatic switch-off/economy mode The scale automatically detects whether it is being operated on rechargeable batteries alone or whether it is connected to the mains. – With rechargeable battery operation: automatic shut-down after 30 seconds. – With mains operation: shut-down only via keypad. Model 767 GB 17 Taring weight display (TARE) The tare function is very useful, for example for determining the weight of a child, animal or other object placed on the scale in addition to yourself. Proceed as follows: – Press the green Start key. – First stand on the scales yourself without the additional weight and activate the Tare function by depressing and holding the HOLD/TARE key. The display is reset to zero, 0.0 flashes in the display until weight is detected to be stable. Only then is the Tare function fully activated. The note “NET” appears. – Now take the additional load onto the scale. You can leave the scale to do so, in which case ---- appears. The scale determines the weight of the additional load. You can now perform as many weighing operations as you like. – Hold the key down again to deactivate the Tare function; the scale is then back in normal weighing mode and the tare value has been erased. – The tare value is likewise erased by the scale being switched off. 18 Store weight value (HOLD) You can also continue displaying the weight determined once the load has been removed. This makes it possible to look after a patient first, before having to note the weight: – Press the HOLD/TARE key whilst the load is on the scale. “HOLD” appears in the digital display. The value is stored until the scale switches off automatically. – The HOLD function can be switched off by pressing the HOLD key again. 0.0 appears in the display if the scale has no load on it, otherwise the current weight. The “HOLD” display vanishes. Note: The HOLD and TARE functions can also be used simultaneously. Body Mass Index (BMI) Body Mass Index puts height and weight in relationship to one another, providing more accurate information than ideal Broca weight, for example. A tolerance range is given which is considered ideal for health. The Body Mass Index applies only to adults: these values are not relevant to children and young people. – Press the Start key. se(a, 188.8.131.52.8. and 0.0 appear consecutively in the display. The scale is then automatically set to zero and ready for operation. – Press the FUNC key. On the display, you will see the last height entered. – You can use the arrow keys to adjust the value in increments according to the graduations displayed. – Once the correct value is set, press the FUNC key again. The BMI function is now activated. – Step on the scale and keep still. – Read off the BMI on the digital display and compare it with the categories on page 20. – Press an arrow key if you would like to see the weight briefly. – To return to normal weighing mode, press the FUNC key. Model 767 GB 19 – To switch off the scale, press the Start key again. Evaluating Body Mass Index: Compare the value determined with the categories shown below. • BMI below 18: Warning, this patient weighs too little. There could be a tendency to anorexia. An increase in weight is recommended to improve well-being and performance. If in doubt, consult a specialist. • BMI between 18 and 20: Patient is at lower weight limit. If he feels well and is completely healthy, his weight can stay as it is. • BMI between 20 and 25: The patient is of a normal weight. He can stay as he his. • BMI between 25 and 30: The patient is slightly to moderately overweight. He should cut his weight if he is already ill (e.g. diabetes, hypertension, gout, fat metabolism disorders). • BMI over 30: Weight reduction is essential. Metabolism, cardiovascular system and bones are all under strain. A consistent diet, plenty of movement and behavioural training are all recommended. If in doubt, consult a specialist. 5. Cleaning Clean the rubber surface and the housing as required using a domestic cleaning agent or commercially-available disinfectant. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Under no circumstances use abrasive or acid cleaners, white spirit, benzene or the like for cleaning. Such substances can damage the high-quality surfaces. 20 6.
