INSTALLATION

Location

The scale should be installed in a location with a flat, level floor. Note that the weighing platform will not sit completely against the floor. This will not affect the accuracy of the scale as the weighing platform will settle to the floor when the patient is placed on the scale.

Back Load Cell

Front Load Cell

1/8” – 1/4” Clearance

The front load cells of the weighing platform will be off the floor. The back load cells must be sitting completely on the floor.

There should be 1/8” to 1/4” clearance between the sides of the scale frame and the floor. This clearance is required for the lift mechanism to close completely. The included shims can be used to raise the scale if there are slight imperfections with the floor or wall mount installation that sits the wall mount too low and prevents the scale from closing completely. If the wall mount is too high the back load cells will not touch the floor when the weighing platform is lowered. If the wall mount is too high, the wall mount must be moved lower on the wall or the scale will not function correctly.

NOTE: It may be necessary to remove any base molding/chair rail/wall guard or to remove a section of the base molding/chair rail/wall guard to provide space to mount the scale in a true vertical position. An alternative method would be to shim the wall mount away from the wall to accommodate any base molding/chair rail/wall guard.

Step 2

– Install the Wall Mount

NOTE: Due to the various types of wall construction, no mounting hardware is furnished with the scale. Appropriate mounting hardware suitable to the wall’s construction will need to be obtained to secure the wall mount to the wall.

The wall mount allows the scale to be adjusted up or down and left or right to accommodate floors that may not be perfectly flat. This insures the accuracy of the weighing platform and prevents undue stress to the scale.

The wall mount should be secured to the wall using mounting hardware suitable to the wall’s construction.

The six (6) holes (in groups of two, sixteen (16) inchs apart) in the wall mount allow for 1/4" hardware to be used to secure the wall mount to the wall.

1. Determine the desired location where the scale is to be mounted.

2. With an assistant, place the wall mount against the wall. Insure it

’s level and 35 1/2” from the top edge of the wall mount to the floor.

3. Mark the holes to mount the wall mount.

4. Remove the wall mount and drill the required diameter holes for the mounting hardware used.

5. Fasten the wall mount to the wall.
