When you stand on the scale after going to the toilet in the morning and find that the number on it has become the number you expected, will you be extremely excited? Do you feel that your efforts during this period have been effective? However, you may have such a situation. When you are in the doctor's office, you find that the number on the scale is inconsistent with the one measured at home? Whose scale has the problem? We will subconsciously feel that the scales at home are not accurate enough, because the hospital, as a professional institution, does not place the wrong electronic scales. Is this really the case? In fact, this does not mean that one of the two scales has a problem, but something that you did not notice happened during your measurement.


Consistency Is Key

It's not a foregone conclusion that the medical weight machine at your doctor's office is more accurate than your weight machine for home use. If it seems less forgiving, the likely reason lies in inconsistency from one weigh-in to the next, rather than in the equipment itself. "If using a digital weighing machine as your metric of loss or gain, the most important thing is to maintain consistency," says weight loss therapist Dr. Candice Seti. "That means using the same electronic weighing machine, at the same time of day, wearing the same type of clothing. There can be a lot of discrepancies from one weigh-in to the next, so measuring yourself on one electronic weighing scale midday and another in the evening could show a massive difference that’s not necessarily accurate."

Tips for Ensuring Scale Accuracy

1. If you still have some doubts after purchasing the best weighing machine that you think, you can follow the instructions and instruction manuals provided by the manufacturer for further calibration. Calibration is the process of resetting the body weight scale to the correct zero weight.

2. Stand still and centered. During weigh-ins, stand in the center of the electric weight machine and keep both feet flat. Avoid shifting your weight from one foot to the other.


3. If you're skeptical about your home weighing scale's reading, try stepping on a scale at the gym or a friend's house at the same time and under the same conditions, then compare the results.


Therefore, you don't need to always wonder if your scale is wrong, and you don't have to worry about whether you need to buy a more expensive weighing machine for human body weight.
