Sometimes the folks at Detecto don't manufacture a scale until
an order for one is placed. For that reason, it can sometimes take
2 to 3 weeks for your order of a Detecto product to arrive.

exactly how long your order will take, contact us
I guess that's the price ya pay for getting that Detecto quality!

Energy Saving Programmable Auto-Off & SleepIf 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 this waist high 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 8437S to go to sleep if ya want to save power, but don't want the scale to shut all the way down.
Alphanumeric KeypadThis waist scale uses the Detecto MV1 MedVue indicator for weighing. This indicator has an alphanumeric keypad for entering patient ids, height and pre-tare weights.
BMI (Body Mass Index) FeatureThe 8437S 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 FeatureWith this cool feature you can weigh, press the "LOCK/RELEASE" key, and step off the scale. After you step off, the weight reading will remain on the display. This can come in handy for recording weight readings.
