Headquartered in Quinter, Kansas, Blue Sage Medical developed the PBS-1200 Under Bed Scale to convert almost any existing hospital bed into a 'weigh bed'. The careful monitoring of a patient's weight is more crucial than ever in today's health care industry, but moving a patient in and out of bed can be not only time consuming, but a dangerous task for both the patient and the caregiver.

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Blue Sage Medical, Incorporated, to offer an under-the-bed scale to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Quinter, Kansas, Blue Sage Medical developed the PBS-1200 Under Bed Scale to convert almost any existing hospital bed into a 'weigh bed'. The careful monitoring of a patient's weight is more crucial than ever in today's health care industry, but moving a patient in and out of bed can be not only time consuming, but a dangerous task for both the patient and the caregiver. While 'weigh beds' can be a good solution to reducing injury risks, their high cost is often prohibitive for many health care facilities. With the patent-pending PBS-1200 Under Bed Scale, almost any existing hospital bed can now be converted to a weigh-bed at an easily affordable price. The cutting-edge technology of this scale delivers the features and accuracy that any health facility requires, all in a durable and rugged design meant to hold up to even the most demanding healthcare environment.
Blue Sage Medical has created this scale for ease of use; one person can set up the scale in just minutes, without the use of any tools, by easily folding down the built-in ramps, aligning the bed and rolling the bed onto the scale. With the ramps in the up position, the bed and scale become one unit, complete with heavy duty casters, ensuring easy mobility of both bed and patient. The back-lit display clamps securely to the foot-board of the bed and is easy to read during both daylight and nighttime hours. The PBS-1200 will not interfere with any hospital room essentials such as over-bed tables or medical monitoring equipment, and will do its job, without interrupting the tasks of other patients, employees or equipment. The patient can be accurately weighed without being disturbed as well.
Now health care facilities of every type can keep accurate track of their patients' weight, without having to invest in an expensive weigh-bed, and without having to risk injury with moving the patient from bed to scale. Security and safety is further enhanced with the additional feature of a Bed Exit Alarm which can be set to alert the staff if a patient gets out of the bed. “We are proud to introduce more healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals to the PBS-1200 Under Bed Scale from Blue Sage Medical,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Weighing patients has never been so safe and easy, and just about any hospital bed can be converted as needed to a weigh-bed with this handy and innovative scale. Any healthcare facility will be sure to enhance their bottom line with a PBS-1200.”
