Many health problems are caused because of weight. When monitoring a patient’s health, it is good to have and know recent information of all the health indicators. To know your patients weight is necessary to avoid other health issues that might be related to weight.

Talking about weight importance, we should be aware of all the measurements that are important to know to avoid any other health issues. Many people think they are healthy and their weight is in the norm as they weigh themselves on general weigh scales. There are many more types of scales designed for the health iindustry, some of them are known more, some of them less, that see more than just a digital number (e.g.: Body Composition Scales).
