At the hospital I work, there is a machine in the main foyer which gives one an instant health check. It measures your weight and height and then calculates your body mass. It also takes your pulse and asks you how much fluid you drink in order to work out your hydration levels.
I notice that some people take their shoes off before using it, while other people keep their shoes on. There is no sign to indicate what one is supposed to do, but I would have thought one's shoes would affect the weight it registers.

beautyandthebeast12: Rest Your Soles and Remove Your Shoes….like it or not.
"Many argue that homeowners who ask guests to remove their shoes are not good hosts and hostesses. I do not agree with this line of thinking at all. Since when do I have to sacrifice the things that we pay for to prove that I want my guests to be comfortable? I have heard it said that people who expect guests to remove their shoes are more concerned about their ” precious floors” than the comfort of their guests. Again, I say, is it not my home and is it not my hard work that goes into maintaining my home? If my guests want to wear shoes in their homes, that is their prerogative."
