Doran’s Model 8150 Chair Scale has been carefully designed to provide a digital chair scale that is easy to move and operate. It’s a perfect scale for weighing patients in a hospital, long term care facility, or a physical rehab center.

The strong steel frame provides a very durable chair scale that can weigh patients up to 550 pounds and display the weight on an easy to read LCD display.  The maneuverable chair scale can be rolled to the patient, and easily and safely locked in place, to weigh the patient.

The four full swivel wheels feature a convenient locking mechanism.  To secure the wheel, simply press down on the locking arm. To release the wheel, press down on the release arm. Most chair scales on the market today have only two locking swivel casters, we’ve put them on all four corners to ensure the safety of the patient and ease of movement in tight spaces.

The anti-tip bar on the bottom of the foot rest arm, prevents the patient from accidently tipping the chair scale forward while seated and leaning too far forward or when they enter or exit the scale.

The large foot rests can be folded up and out of the way when the patient enters and exits the scale…and folded down when the scale is used to weigh the patient.  With the patient’s feet on the foot rest, an accurate weight is ensured.

With a seat measuring almost 22” wide, this DS8150 can still easily fit through any doorway.

The padded arm rests fold up and out of the way to allow patients to slide on to the scale from the side from a bed or wheelchair.  The arm rests can then be folded down for the patient’s safety.

The weight results and BMI calculations are displayed on the scale’s weight indicator 1” tall LCD display.  The indicator is mounted on swivel bracket on the back of the chair.

The scale is powered by the included six AA batteries which last for over 85,000 weighments. The scale’s electronics has an adjustable automatic shutoff timer to extend the battery life. The remaining battery life is shown in the upper right hand corner of the LCD display. The DS8150 can also be powered by the included AC adapter.

The DS8150 is EMR Ready and data can be transmitted via either the included USB or RS-232 ports.

This is my second one of these DYMO Digital Postal Scales. The first one my daughter borrowed and I got tired of waiting for her to return it, so I bought a new one, but I made sure it was the same brand. I use it all the time. Some times for the mail, some times for bagging food up in one pound packs and sometimes for weighing the cat, but never all at the same time. I like that it has no cord, but at first I was hesitant to buy a scale that wasn't electric. I got over it fast. The batteries in my first scale never had to be changed (at least I don't remember ever changing them out) and I had

Fantastic, accurate product!
In our line of work we ship invoices and blueprints often. We are trying to budget our money so I suggested to my wife to use DYMO M5 Digital Postal Scales for better accuracy. Rather than putting more than enough stamps and sending which was our routine. I'm happy to say we really are saving money! Stamps have gotten quite expensive over recent years so I was ecstatic to see a difference with and without using this set of digital postal scales. I'm so glad I went with my gut feeling and decided to go this route. Now there's little to no extra cost with these. No return to sender due to lack o

Very accurate
I've been using this little scale for a few weeks now and it's been great. I've not really felt up to going to the post office, so I've been doing a lot of mailing from home. Which means I either need to weigh my parcels or ship flat rate, and flat rate was getting $$$. I'm just making masks and baby clothes for friends, so it's not like I have a huge volume to ship, but it adds up. Anyway, this thing is accurate. I tested it against my food scale and they both weigh in the same (though this goes to two decimals and my food scale to three). Most importantpy though, no one's gotten charged on t

Works Great!!
I recently received this great scale. I'm so glad that I chose this type of scale. It's not to heavy at all. From the size I thought it would be a bit heavy. I was wrong. Obviously it's not a pocket sized scale, but it's small enough to be able to store and not take up a bunch of space. I send out small item's to my family up north and this takes the time of figuring out weight before I get to the post office. I know exactly what type of insurance, if needed when I get there. All in all it's perfect for me and I'm glad that I now have one. *I recieved this product in exchange for my honest opi

Works Great
My favorite thing about this scale, is that it is digital and very accurate. I have used this scale to weigh packages, and even produce. The scale works very well! This product comes with batteries included as well, so no need to purchase additional batteries. My favorite feature about this scale is that it is small, light and very easy to put away for storage. I also love that you can convert the weight from kilograms to pounds or vice versa.

I bought this after reading numerous bad reviews for all the competing products. The Dymo scales all had decent reviews. This was a screaming deal on Home Essentials Direct Warehouse , so I ended up buying this model even though it had way more capacity than i needed. More is better right? The scale appears to be made well, and functions properly, However, it only reads in half pound increments. Didn't see that in the description or any of the reviews I read. Reads only half pound increments should be one of the first descriptors, it's a scale after all. So I think I'll return it and get the 1

Not for weights less than 1lb
After setting up this scale I realized it will not display weights less than 1lb. This information is shown in the user manual, but not listed anywhere online. We ship a handful of items each day that are under a pound, so we cannot use this scale. Other than that it seems to be really nice and easily interfacing with our shipping software

Can recommend. Date of Review 01/20/16.
My objectives in getting a postal scale were (1) to be able to weigh letters and packages so I could enter accurate weight in to shippers online cost calculators; and (2) to have a scale that runs on AC current, not batteries. (I didnt want to be concerned with keeping fresh batteries in the house or removing them while the scale is not used for a long period.) This scale does just what I need -- and, so far, I really like it. The machine seems well-built; Im impressed with the quality. Ive had it for approximately two weeks and have only used it twice, but it has, already, saved me a couple s

Works well as a scale
I'm not using the USB function of this, but as a scale it seems fine. Weighs the same weight over and over again just fine, reading is fairly stable within 0.2 lb, doesn't jump around. One problem I'm seeing is that when weighing larger items, the scale platform is almost level with the outside components of the scale. So part of the weight may end up on these and not end up being weighed. The reading will be incorrect unless a spacer is placed on the scale, such as a book, then zero the scale, then weigh your item. This is why I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars. If someone is not careful, the

Postal scale
So far I have been able to work with it. I check multiple times for the package. At first it was giving mixed readings. Played around with it and I think I have it figured out. It is hard to read if your not at the right angle or poor lighting. Easy enough to move where you can!

Great Product
I actually use this to weigh and separate my meat. It works perfectly for that! Its easy to read and use. It is super lightweight and small enough to not take a lot of space when put away. I also love that it already came with batteries, they are still going strong. Trying to start a small business so this product will be great.

Purchase to replace a 15 year old Pelouze scale I had that finally died. So far this scale has been great. Easy to use. Can plug into USB on computer or use batteries. Currently using batteries and so far has been great.

I liked this scale a lot, very easy to read and overall very functional. However I am returning,because its not convenient for the kind of business I have (which you should totally check out @abandonedvintagegoods on IG) works best with smaller business such as stickers, jewelry,or crystals! My orders are way heavier than 5 pounds sometimes

Lightweight & no fuss
I got the impression from the online photo that it would be somewhat heavy, but it's airy and light. Just pop in the batteries and it starts working. I like how super simple and straightforward it is to use. I was debating between this product and the Oxo scale that has a pull-out feature, but I like the Hold button on this scale better; it's much more simple and streamlined.

Great, affordable postage scales for home office
A great Postage Scales for home office use at a very affordable price. Simple and easy to use, metric or imperial weight display. The hold function is very useful for large or awkward size parcels when the screen can't be seen. Tare facility is also a useful feature. The size of the scale is perfect for sitting on my desk without being too big or bulky. It's great that it can be powered via a USB cable as well. I'm very pleased with the product for my basic needs, which is to be able to work out postal costs before going to the post office. The only minor annoyance was that I wasn't able to fi

Great little scale at a good price
The scale works just fine. It has a screen that points forward so you can see the weight even though you have an envelope on top. My old scale had a screen that faced upwards so you had to peer around the envelope to see the reading. This new one is much nicer and cost a whole lot less. It uses regular AAA batteries that were included, but are easy to find anywhere when you need to replace them. The old one I had used 9 volt batteries, which are around, but so few items use them now I hate to keep some on hand. AAA ones are cheaper, I think, and fit so many items that I always have some on han

Great scale !
This scale comes so much in handy Im glad I have it now. I use it a lot for weighing my smaller mail. I send a lot of letters and packages, so having this scale at home earns me extra time! Its the perfect not too big and not too small. It is also very easy to manage. The numbers on the screen are also a good size. I highly recommend it

Since I've had this scale, whenever powered from USB from the computer, turning the scale on with the power button shows 0.0oz for 1 second then the display says "SLEEP" and the scale powers off. Subsequent attempts to power on either do the same thing, or the scale does nothing. Different USB ports, batteries installed, different computer, etc all yield similar results. Occasionally I can get it to stay on, but it is rare and in general the scale is useless. HOWEVER, I found out that if I hit the KG/LB button when the scale is powered off, the display shows START and the scale powers on and w

Practical functional scale
This is second scale received (first one malfunction after 2 mos.). Been using this one about 6 mos. and so far works fine. Very practical scale with easy to see readout, large enough platform for my needs. Use with small mail order operation. Accurate readings (compare with other scale to validate periodically). Inexpensive. Customer service was excellent when contacting to report problem and obtain replacement

I bought this scale with the idea of pairing it with the Dymo turbo label writer
I bought this scale with the idea of pairing it with the Dymo turbo label writer. While I haven't purchased the later yet, the scale works fine on its on. When you connect to a computer and download the free Dymo weight scale program it gives you the cost for most letters to be mailed in the US. I haven't been disappointed in the scale, but thought the Dymo program that I downloaded from the web site could be more user friendly. If you want to make sure you are sending a letter out with the correct postage and know the maximum weight for a first class letter, you really don't have to connect t

Dymo M5 USB Digital Postal Scale
I bought this item to use when selling items online. Previously when calculating the cost of posting an item it was hit and miss, with most times under calculating the cost and not charging the correct amount. With this item I can now advertise the exact cost of postage without over or under charging. Well worth the money

Great scale for shipping
This is a great scale for shipping small packages without going to the post office. It is lightweight and can easily fit on a shelf. The screen is easy to read and the buttons are easy to use. I have shipped several packages and the scale is accurate. I can save time and money by not going to the post office.

Sturdy postal scale
This scale has every feature you would want in a postal scale and then some. I appreciate the 'hold' feature since most packages will be larger than the scale. The tare function works well and the weight seems to be correct. Nice non skid scale surface and comes with batteries.

Dymo M2 Digital Postal Scale
The scales are adequate for small items such as envelopes and small parcels and work very well. I really should have looked around for larger scales as they only measure 6 x 5.5 x 1.5 and are not suitable for some of my packages.They are well made so I would recommend but only for small items.

DYMO 5-lb. Digital Postal Scale
I purchased 4 of these scales at the same time for my hobby of racing Radio Controlled cars. What I found out was when I turned them on one at a time they ALL read 0.0 lbs individually. I then weighted my one car on ALL four scales and the weight was identical on each one. I use the scales to measure the pressure on each wheel to set up the balance and suspension. By making different adjustments to the car the weight changes on each of the 4 tires which tells me if I know I have it adjusted correctly. Accuracy is important and so far it has been working great. I also weighted some packages for

Ok Scale
Quality seems good and scale is accurate. This replaces our non USB scale and is nice, because the weight shows up in our shipper app automatically. What I don't like is it was difficult to get set up, and finally had to call Dymo support. Also don't like how the display part doesn't stay on the scale well, as it's designed to come off. The wrist thing is the default auto-shutoff after 30 seconds, which cancels the benefit of a USB scale. It's true you can disable the auto-off feature, but every time you unplug the scale or turn it off, the next time you turn it on, you have to disable it agai

The instruction were easy to follow and I read them in a couple of minutes. After that, everything worked just fine. It reads weights to a tenth of an ounce, which is great. It has an auto shut-off feature which is also a plus. I didn't even have to put batteries in it, I just power it with the USB cord. I really like this scale.

Dymo M2 Digital Postal Scale
This scales is simple and easy to use. It does the job. But I just wish it was bigger as if I put a larger size package on it even just something about 10 inch square, its difficult to read the weight on the screen as the package overhangs. If I push the package further back in order to be able to see the screen, this affects the weight reading. But I guess I shouldve read the dimensions of the product better before I purchased it.

Right from the box this scale accurately measured everything I placed on the scale. I have made my own test weights out of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. I looked up their weights online and made small groups of them to form ounces or metric weights. I wrapped each group in lightweight invisible tape which adds an extremely small weight to it. I could not believe how accurate it is all the way up to its maximum. This scale will save me countless trips to the post office. Unless it quits working for some reason I will be using it for a long time.
