Seca 416 is a Infantometer for measuring babies and toddlers in hospitals and surgeries or other primary care settings.
The sturdy construction and stability of the Seca 416 infantometer makes it quick and easy to measure babies and toddlers up to two years old. The board is generously designed and the raised and softly rounded sides guide the baby easily and safely into the right position. With the permanently mounted rollers on two guide rails, the foot-piece slides smoothly along the scale. Because the foot-piece is lockable, the baby can be removed and the result noted later. All parts are tough and durable.
One of the central tasks in paediatrics is to recognise growth disorders in children as quickly as possible. Only then can effective therapies be applied to also avoid illnesses which may arise from these disorders. Only precise results lead to a correct diagnosis – in order to ascertain how fast a child grows in cm/year (essential for the dynamic assessment of the growth of a child), millimetre precision is called for. Such precision is impossible with the conventional wooden and metal devices. But it is possible with the Seca 416 infantometer. Especially suitable for demanding pediatricians in hospitals and practices.
Automatically correct lying position and precise results with the trough-shaped lying area The completely new design of the infantometer seca 416 makes the extremely precise measurement of babies and small children up to the age of two years possible. The large lying area with its softly curved edges places the baby quickly and safely in the right position. Precise results – of within less than 2 mm – can be achieved, stress-free.
The foot piece of the infantometer glides smoothly along the measuring scale on two runners. As soon as the baby’s length has been measured, the automatic brake ensures that the foot piece is locked. So, even if the baby should be restless, the foot piece cannot be displaced and the result altered. The baby can first be attended to before one has to note down the result. The brake can be quickly and easily released at the touch of a button.
The measuring scale of the infantometer seca 416 is located along the top edge and is easy to read. The result can be quickly read off in a red framed indicator window where a clear arrow marks the exact result. The scale is marked in both centimetres and inches and is still easy to read after frequent use. The surface of the infantometer is abrasion resistant and insensitive to alkaline solutions, acids and disinfectants.
