Sometimes the folks at Detecto don't manufacture a scale until
an order for one is placed. For that reason, it can sometimes take

If ya need to know before ordering
exactly how long your order will take, contact us.

Product Details

  • Easy To Read Display

    This portable wheelchair scale has an easy to read weight indicator with 0.87" weight digits, 0.5" height digits, 0.5" BMI digits and 0.35" ID digits. The 6550 will display weight, height, BMI and patient ID simultaneously...no more scrolling through screens! You can even adjust the display's intensity to suit your environment.

  • Tare & Pre-Tare Feature

    The tare button on Detecto 6550 can be pressed to "zero set" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of what you're adding. You can also use the numeric keypad to enter known tare weights if ya need to, or store up to 99 popular tare weights.

  • Energy Saving Programmable Auto-Off & Sleep

    If you've ever had the batteries in something run out because you forgot to turn it off, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can set the 6550 wheel chair scale to automatically turn off after your choice of up to nine minutes of inactivity, or to stay on until ya turn it off yourself. You can also program the 6550 to go to sleep if ya want to save power, but don't want the scale to shut all the way down.

  • Alphanumeric Keypad

    This eye level scale uses the Detecto MV1 MedVue indicator for weighing. This indicator has an alphanumeric keypad for entering patient ids, height and pre-tare weights.

  • Folding Design For Easy Transportation

    The platform on the Detecto 6550 folds right up and can be rolled in four directions. This makes transporting and storing this medical scale very easy.

  • Extra Large, Non-Slip Platform

    This wheelchair scale has a large, 30" x 32" weighing platform with a non slip surface with loading ramps on both sides. This makes the 6550 perfect for both standing and sitting patients.

  • BMI (Body Mass Index) Feature

    The Detecto 6550 can also tell you your BMI number. Your BMI number is calculated based on your weight and height, and can help ya see if you're in a healthy weight range or not. Knowing this information can really help ya out when you're about to start up a diet and exercise plan.

  • Hold Feature

    With this cool feature you can weigh, press the "LOCK/RELEASE" key, and step off the scale. After you step off the 6550, the weight reading will remain on the display. This can come in handy for recording weight readings.


    This Detecto portable wheelchair scale comes with a one year warranty against manufacturing defects.

Detecto 6550
Excellent scale. The problem with being in a wheelchair is having the ability to monitor your weight. Every doctor I have went to does not have a scale. They always ask me "What do you weigh?" I was able to get weighed during a new wheelchair evaluation at Ohio State University a few years back. So that is the weight I always give. Boy, what an eye opener. The scale arrived in perfect condition right to my door. The packaging was very protective being this item is drop shipped from the manufacturer. It's easy to set up and folds up nicely to store out of the way. I started a diet and exercise program at the first of the year. I wish I would have purchased and received this scale before I started so I could have monitored my progress from the beginning. However, I received the scale on Feb 1st and I am glad to say that by Feb 10th I had lost 7 lbs. Well worth every penny I paid for the scale. And my wife uses it to for herself and the cats. I would but this scale again tomorrow if I had to. I checked many vendors before I purchased. Old Will Knott Scales had the best price on the scale and shipping. The CSR provided excellent customer service, answered all my questions, and provided me with the custom shipping quote the very same day. I will look at Old Will Knott Scales first for my future purchases. Hope this review help in your decision to purchase. I know I am very happy with mine.
