Provider chain Life Care Centers of America has announced that SR Instruments is its preferred provider of portable wheelchair scales. LCCA has more than 200 locations.

SR Scales’ portable wheelchair scale allows providers to push patients in wheelchairs onto the platform to obtain a reading. The lightweight design includes a digital display. The scale has a 1,000-pound capacity and a four-year product warranty.

“The SR725i-L wheelchair scale from SR Scales is ideal for our facilities, providing the quality, accuracy and long-term reliability we need, while allowing our staff to comfortably weigh our patients,” said John Kitterman, Director of Purchasing at Life Care Centers of America.

The company will be in Booth 824 during the Oct. 16-19 AHCA/NCAL convention in Nashville. It also will be at Booth 4625 from Oct. 30-Nov. 2 at LeadingAge in Indianapolis.
