The built in VanderScale offers distinct advantages over the hanging scale. The hanging scale causes a loss of 4.5 inches of lifting height. This could be unacceptable if a bed doesn't lower enough like many specialty beds, or if your facility is planning on using the lift for ambulation. It also puts the scale in easy reach and reading of the caregiver. This scale is available on the Vanderlift 450, Vanderlift 600, Vanderlift II B450, Vanderlift II B450S, Vanderlift II B600, Vera 350, Vera 600, Vera II B350, Vera II B350S, Vera II B450 and Vera II B600.
