Ulmer Stadiometer height measurement

STADIOMETER - BUSSE's own product range provides exact measurement data

Medical products, Packaging & Manuals

Precise measurements for reliable data, easy handling and robust design - these are the strengths of BUSSE devices such as the Ulmer Stadiometer for measuring the height of persons in children, adolescents and adults. As early as the 1980s, BUSSE developed this device together with Prof. Heinze from the University Hospital in Ulm. In the meantime, a number of different devices have emerged from this, which have been repeatedly improved or supplemented over the years.

BUSSE recently received positive feedback from a particularly discerning audience at the joint annual conference of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Pädiatrische Diabetologie (AGPD) e.V. and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Kinder-Endokrinologie und -diabetologie (DGKED) in Leipzig, where the company presented the 2015 innovations in its own stadiometer product line at an exhibition stand. The BUSSE team used this opportunity for in-depth discussions with users such as professors, specialists, nurses and medical assistants.

For example, the length measuring device will in future also be available with integrated baby scales, so that only one measuring station for babies is required. The new generation of the Ulm stadiometer is supplemented by a heel stop and a seat height measuring chair that can be switched on. The latest product in the BUSSE range of devices is an arm span measuring device that also provides important data for observing and treating growth development in children.

The length measuring device with baby scale is expected to be available in summer 2015, all other products in the new device series are expected to be available from March 2015. In principle, all devices now bear the GS test seal.

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."



"With BUSSE as a sparring partner, we were able to successfully work out a brand-defining design for our latest products that was appropriate for the target group. BUSSE understood our internal company processes very well and was therefore able to deliver optimal results. Deadlines were always met, you can rely on BUSSE. Anytime again!"



"We were positively surprised by the collaboration with BUSSE in that the focus was not solely on the appearance of our product, but rather on the interplay of economical manufacturing solutions, optimized ergonomics and a functional design. The result now impresses with a coherent, unprecedented design concept."
