In the medical field, sometimes it is necessary to weigh or transfer patients who are disabled and cannot walk. A hoyer lift is used to move patients around. A manufacturer would like a force system in order to weight disabled patients, but also to see the maximum weight it can hold.
Interface’s WTS 1200 Standard Precision LowProfile® Wireless Load Cell is attached to the top of the hoyer lift. The force results are wirelessly transmitted to the medical personal’s computer or laptop through the WTS-BS-6 Wireless Telemetry Dongle Base Station.
Interface’s wireless force system was able to measure the amount of weight a patient was, while also clarifying the maximum capacity the hoyer lift can hold.
