Stadiometers are the medical equipment intended for measuring human height. Stadiometers equipment consist of a ruler/scale and a header for measuring height accurately and precisely. Stadiometers equipment is widely adopted in common medical practices, experiments, and clinical examinations. Stadiometers equipment is digital measurement device and is used with the anthropometry application. Calibration of stadiometers equipment is done at the starting of each stand, once in every two weeks, or at the end of the examinations. Calibration is done by placing rod on the floor of stadiometers equipment followed by placing the horizontal bar of stadiometers against the top of calibration rod. In addition to that, stadiometers's measurement should be equal to the weight of calibration rod. Sales of stadiometer devices mainly occurs via various distribution channels such as retail stores, online stores and supermarkets.
