A longtime bed-ridden patient may find it difficult to measure body weight. This bed-scale is designed with six piezoelectric sensors between the lower-bed mattress and the bedstead to measure body weight and with an electrode along the bed edge to measure body fat. It works to facilitate a further calculation of metabolic rate, total body water, body mass index or Skeletal Muscle.
With a design of separation between a bed mattresses and a weight scale, it allows an easy lift-up and replacement.
