Universal HM-400 Patient Lift Weight Scale Kit (DOES NOT INCLUDE SLING OR LIFT). The HM-400 kit will easily attach to: 1) The spreader bar (or cradle) of any floor lift (such as a Hoyer lift, Invacare lift, Lumex lift, Bestcare lift, Medline lift, Prism Medical lift, ArjoHuntleigh lift, Drive Medical lift, Graham-Field lift, etc.), 2) The spreader bar (or cradle) of any ceiling lift, 3) Any battery-operated portable patient lift (such as a Voyager, V-3, Maxi-Sky, P-300, P-400, etc.). The HM-400 kit DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY DISASSEMBLY OF THE LIFT, is very easy to attach (it takes about 1 minute) and the procedure is quickly learned. The HM-400 kit contains a heavy-duty scale with a 330lb weight capacity and is perfect for use in any home care situation or even institutional care. The HM-400 kit is NOT compatible with any sit-to-stand or stand-assist lifts where the patient is bearing weight on their legs. The HM-400 kit is the most affordable option for weighing your bed-ridden or non-ambulatory patient at home. The backlight LCD display and indicators on the electronic scale are easy to read in any lighting condition. The scale has a handy hold function which keeps the reading visible on the display after the weight is settled, allowing the operator to safely record the patient’s weight.

The HM-400 kit is designed to be attached and removed from YOUR patient lift easily and quickly each time that you need to weigh your patient. Our recommendation is to use the HM-400 kit only periodically (and not continuously) to weigh your patient. Reasons for our periodic-use recommendation:
Reason #1: When attached, the HM-400 kit adds approximately 13″ of length to your existing spreader bar setup. This means that you will have approximately 13″ less lifting height. If using a floor lift (Hoyer-type lift) that does not raise your patient very high, it may be necessary to first transfer your patient to a lower seat or bed before you begin the weighing process.
Reason #2: The HM-400 kit spreader bar, while extremely heavy-duty, is shorter than the spreader bar on your patient lift. You should always use the spreader bar on your patient lift for day-to-day lifts because it is larger than the HM-400 kit spreader bar and allows for the patient’s girth to be spread over a wider area ultimately allowing for a much more comfortable lifting experience.
