USCALE / Weighing Scale

USCALE
USCALE

USCALE is a universal design for different ethnic groups. The model of USCALE is flat and arcuate, and it can be folded to stand. When users step on it, it will become flat to let users stand on it easily. USCALE can also be split into two parts; the elders or disable people can sit on the two separated parts to measure their weight in a comfortable way. For babies, they can lie on it, which makes it easier for adults to operate.The operation of USCALE is based on pressure measurement. There are a lot of pressure sensors under the cover, which can give feedback through different ways.
