Weight is a crucial health issue for the 5 million wheelchair users in the US. Having mobility difficulties doubles your chances of being obese, which increases the risk of further medical complications like heart disease or potentially lethal pressure sores. Despite this, there are no viable home scales available. Using novel weighing technology, Lilypad Scales has created a convenient and easy-to-use scale that helps wheelchair users to track their weight on their own, in their home.
Lilypad Scales helps wheelchair users weigh themselves affordably on their own, in their home.
