Scales For Weighing Obese People

There was a time not so long ago weighing a super morbidly fatling was a major undertaking. Often the had to be trucked to a cattle scale but now with so many super super obese fatlings scales are available but they don't come cheap.

Scales From The Good Folks at Ample Stuff

We know how difficult it is to find a reasonably priced high-quality digital scale for home use that goes over 440 pounds. Most scales don't even go over 330 pounds. We had been looking for one for years. Some of the new 400 or 440 pound scales are not of a particularly good quality, either. For a long time, the cheapest scale we found in this weight range was about $500 to $600. Ouch!

But we now have three good scales that you can use even if you weigh more than 440 pounds (They are also good below 330!).

At Amplestuff, we believe that nobody should obsess about the numbers on a scale, but if you want to know what you weigh, you should be able to find out easily, using these scales.

The 550 lb. digital scale was designed for personal use at home, as was the new 700 lb. extra-wide platform scale; the 750 lb. scale is more rugged, and was designed for commercial use, for weighing freight in shipping departments, or for weighing people but not exclusively at home. They are all accurate to plus or minus 1% of the reading, or better, which in the case of a 500 lb reading, could be as much as a 5 lb error, which doesn't change much over time. None of these scales were designed specifically for medical purposes, or for use in hospitals. Such scales usually cost between $500 and $3000, beyond the reach of most individuals. If you need to use scales for medical purposes, for very precise tracking of weight loss or gain, you may need to check with your physician before ordering any scales for use at home.

If you have any questions or need further info about our scales, please e-mail us, or contact us to speak to Bill—our "resident engineer".

I would suggest for you behemoths out there who exceed 770 pounds get two scales, stand on them and add up the total. I would further suggest that you place a board across the two scales so that you are not landing all your weight on one scale. And remember fatlings.... PROUD BY NATURE - FAT BY CHOICE!
