Mounting

         Attach height rod footplate into notch at bottom of height rod. Mount height rod to the wall with foot plate touching the floor. This will automatically calibrate the height rod for use.

          Use the round, black spacers either single or stacked together, if needed, behind the height rod screw. holes to compensate for rounded floor boards/floor molding when mounting the height rod to the wall. Mount height rod to the wall. 

 

Measuring

          With headpiece locked in place at top of height rod & protruding, take measurement reading at red line located at junction of upper telescoping section & lower fixed section of height rod. Use the Frankfort Method of measuring (i.e. patient stands with back to height rod).

          For measuring children, push black tab in back of headpiece to disengage headpiece and lower it down to fixed section of height rod. Measurement is then taken at red line on the headpiece itself. When finished, snap headpiece back into place at top of height rod and fold headpiece down until next usage.

 

Checking accuracy

 

  • Once the rod is installed as indicated in the above section (Mounting) fold out the slider head piece and set the rod to any desired height (example 45 inches) this number is going to be read at the red/orange mark at the bottom of the folded out head piece, if you were to select a height over 51 inches this number is going to be read at the red/orange line where the two sections of the rod come together.

 

  • Next take a measuring tape and measure the distance between the floor and up to the bottom of the folded out head piece and that measurement will read 45 inches as indicated in the example in above paragraph.

 

 

  • Note: you can not measure from the floor to the numbers on the rod as they are offset by one and a quarter inches to compensate for the distance between the folded out head piece and the red/orange mark located just under the folded out head piece. In simple terms the measurements are read at the red/orange lines and as you may see the bottom of the gray head piece sets a inch and a quarter above that forcing seca to offset the numbers on the rod by a negative one and a quarter inches. This is the reason that the height rod must butt against the floor once it is inserted into the heel plate.
