Weighing scales were first developed as merchants needed a way to assess the value of goods, the earliest record of weighing scales dates back to 2,000 B.C. This method used two plates attached to an overhead beam and measurements were taken by placing the goods on one plate and weighted stones on the other, until an equilibrium was reached.
During the Industrial era in 1770, Richard Salter invented the first spring scale. This method measures the pressure exerted on a spring to deduce the weight of an object, rather than a system of equilibrium, the spring scale relied on the effects of gravity.
The spring scale is still a common method of weight measurement, however, the 20th century demanded a need for more precise and accurate electronic methods. Weighing scales of today are expertly designed to meet the requirements and technological advances of the Medical Industry, including scales that are able to calculate body composition, BMI and feature HOLD and TARE function.
Medscope is delighted to stock a wide range of scales for GPs, Hospitals, Care Homes, Weight Loss and Rehabilitation Clinics from market leaders Marsden and Seca.
