Babies and toddlers have to be weighed and measured regularly to monitor their development.

Babies and toddlers have to be weighed and measured regularly to monitor their development.

The work done by school doctors, midwives and doctors on house calls is often difficult. Because they can't be sure they'll find everything they need on site, they have to rely on the equipment they carry with them. For these occupational groups, seca gmbh & co. kg, Hamburg/Germany, now offers two perfect combinations for the determination of the exact weight and height of infants and toddlers, adults and schoolchildren. Although each is specially designed for one group's specific requirements, both systems have a lot in common. For one thing, they deliver highly accurate measurements. They can also be set up without fuss and can be safely transported and – thanks to space-saving dimensions – quickly stowed away in the robust seca 414 carrying case.

Baby and toddler scale seca 384 and Infantometer seca 417
In one easy step the seca 384 baby scale can be converted into a flat scale on which toddlers can stand to be weighed. All the user has to do is press a key to release the lock on the removable weighing tray. When the tray is fixed on the base, its gently rounded shape and high sides give even the smallest babies a feeling of security. To determine the amount of milk an infant has consumed, the user weighs the baby before and after breast-feeding and activates the Breast Milk Intake Function (BMIF), which automatically calculates and displays the difference in weight. The TARE function can deduct the weight of a towel placed in the weighing tray with the baby. The Auto-HOLD function guarantees that the weight remains displayed until after the child has been tended to. In calibration Class III, the seca 384 can weigh up to 20 kilograms. The scale weighs up to 10 kilograms in 10 grams graduations, and beyond that, in 20 grams graduations.
The seca 417 Infantometer measures the exact length of a child while lying down. The user unfolds the two-piece measuring board and attaches the foot positioner. High sides and a stable head positioner ensure that the child is properly placed. The large foot positioner glides smoothly along the measurement scale on guide rails to the bottom of the child's feet. The length can be easily read from the red scale, which has a range of 10 to 100 cm.
For transport the foot positioner is loosened, slid next to the head positioner and fixed into place by folding up the bottom element on the measuring board. The seca 417 is conveniently stored with the seca 384 scale in the seca 414 carrying case and then easily carried to the next place of use.

Flat scale seca 877 and Stadiometer seca 217 –
for adults and schoolchildren
The seca 437 adapter connects the seca 217 stadiometer to the seca 877 electronic flat scale to make up a complete weighing and measuring station for adults and schoolchildren. Weighing and measuring can take place in a single step anywhere. Between uses the individual elements of the stadiometer can be taken apart and safely transported along with the scale and adapter in the seca 414 carrying case.
With a quick tap on the platform, the seca 877 flat scale is immediately ready for use. The scale's integrated 20-millimeter-high display shows the precise weight. The Class III calibrated seca 877 weighs persons up to 200 kilograms. The graduation is 100 grams up to 150 kilograms and 200 grams at higher weights. With the help of a level and four large leveling bases, the scale can be set up correctly and securely at each new location.
When a small child is weighed in its mother's arms, the previously stored weight of the mother is deducted from the total, leaving only the child's weight in the display.
The seca 217 stadiometer is connected to the scale by the seca 437 adapter. It is not necessary to fix the rod to the wall; a wall bracket provides extra stability. The large headpiece allows easy adjustment of the slide up to a height of 205 centimeter. The scale on the side of the measuring rod is easy to read.
