Abstract

Portable hanging scales are a common means of weighing young children. Weighing trousers used to suspend children from a hanging scale are uncomfortable and require insertion of the child's legs through the trousers. The 'weighing seat' holds the child in a more natural, comfortable, and secure position, thus increasing the child's acceptance of the weighing procedure, and making the procedure less traumatic for the child and easier for the examiner.
