The fully automatic mother and child weighing function allow to determine the weight of new born and small children fast and effortless in the arms of a nurse, parent or field worker just by activating the scale via the tap on function. Due to the auto-hold function the user can still read the weight of the child on the display after stepping off the scale. A lightweight and splash proof carry bag for transport is supplied as a standard feature. A fully sealed on and off switch is placed beneath the scale to avoid unwanted battery use in transport. The light coloured, slip resistant platform protects the surface from unwanted heating in bright sun light. Rechargeable solar battery included.
