Height Measurement Instruments, Wall Mounted
Definition : Height/length measuring instruments designed to be mounted on a wall. These instruments may consist of a graduated (either metric, inches, or both) wall-mounted rod that permits a direct mechanical measurement; some electronic instruments link the rod to a remote display that shows the person's height. Wall-mounted height measuring instruments are used in doctors' offices, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities for routine evaluation of a standing person's height. High-precision instruments intended to evaluate the growth of children and young adults (known as stadiometers) are also available.
