After watching this video, test your skills with a practice activity! Go to http://www.alliedhealthtools.com Intended Audience: Allied Health Students Welcome to "Reading Height Measurements on a Physician Mechanical Beam Scale with Height Rod". In this lesson, you will learn how to interpret the calibration markings on a height rod of a Physician Mechanical Beam Scale and determine the height indicated on height rods with and without the number of feet given.
Following up from a video in 2013, this time I take a height reading whilst facing the stadiometer, then take another height measurement the more common way - with your back against the height rod. Is there any difference, and if so is it significant? Find out.
