What is a physician scale? Physician scales are specialized weighing instruments that allow a doctor, nurse or therapist to monitor the weight of a patient. The balance style of physician scales uses a beam that rests on a fulcrum and two or more sliding weights. Digital physician scales work in the same sense but display a digital read out on a screen. Platform physician scales are digital and have a wall mounted display making them versatile in room placement. Some physician scales, like stretcher scales and scales with handrails, make measuring the weight of the disabled or handicapped simpler.
