SR Scales Selected by Life Care Centers of America as Preferred Provider of Portable Wheelchair Scales

Competitive Presentation Demonstrates SR Scales’ Product Superiority in Functionality and Features

Tonawanda, NY – September 14, 2016 – SR Instruments, a leading manufacturer of purpose-built scales for hospitals, medical facilities, and long term centers, today announced that its flagship product line, SR Scales, has been selected as the preferred provider of portable wheelchair scales for all Life Care Centers of America institutions. With over 200 locations nationwide, Life Care Centers provide unparalleled medical and rehabilitative care for their residents.

"We needed to find an alternative approach to weighing our patients that would provide greater accuracy, repeatability, and ease of use for our staff," said John Kitterman, Director of Purchasing at Life Care Centers of America. "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."

SR Scales’ portable wheelchair scale, model SR725i-L, enables patients in wheelchairs, including bariatric wheelchairs, to easily fit on the scale’s platform to obtain weight data. The scale’s aluminum design is lighter than steel-based models, enabling easier transportation of the scale throughout a facility. In addition, the scale’s digital display mast folds down flat against the base platform, requiring minimal storage space while keeping the hallways clear for safety. Rounding out the feature set of the scale is its 1,000 pound capacity and four year product warranty.

Facility managers, planners, and nursing supervisors needing more information on the SR-725i-L can find additional resources including a product video at

SR Instruments will be demonstrating the SR725i-L and other SR Scales at the following events:

  • AHCA\NCAL 67th Annual Convention and Expo, October 16-19, 2016 in Nashville, TN, booth 824
  • LeadingAge Annual Meeting and Expo, October 30 – November 2, 2016 in Indianapolis, IN, booth 4625
