Pulse oximeters have become increasingly popular over the past few months because of their use as a coronavirus early detection tool. A number of recovering COVID-19 patients have been given oximeters to keep track of their oxygen levels.
As we launch the Marsden O-100 Fingertip Pulse Oximeter we ask, how important is this clever little device in detecting early signs of coronavirus?
As we’ve discussed in our previous article, temperature screening measures can be a highly effective early detection tool, which can save costs and boost morale within a business. Over the past month, the UK has seen airports, ports and office complexes install this technology.
For many businesses, the expensive temperature screening cameras used by these businesses aren’t feasible. That’s why we’ve introduced the Marsden T-210.
A recent survey by Sport England/Savanta ComRes discovered that British citizens in lockdown were missing the gym more (14%) than they were other leisure activities like swimming (13%) and football (5%).
Furthermore, the survey also reported that 87% of gym-goers plan to rejoin a gym after lockdown, and 27% of non-gym-goers plan to join a gym.
But when will they reopen?
If you’re a gym or slimming club regular, two months of lockdown has probably been tough. Even with exercise outdoor allowed, you probably need to think outside of the box.
If you have found exercise during lockdown a struggle, take a look at our checklist. With help from ManVFat (who use the Marsden M-545 for their weighing-in sessions), we’ve compiled five tips for losing weight during lockdown and help get you through to the reopening of gyms (hopefully from July).
Schools in the UK closed ‘until further notice’ on Friday 20th March. Eight weeks on, although there is still no confirmed date, schools have been advised to prepare for re-opening ‘from 1st June.’
But when education and childcare settings do begin to open, which looks to be highly likely before the summer holidays, what can be done to make them as safe as possible?
Since the outbreak of coronavirus in the UK, there has been a chronic PPE shortage, with supplies in some areas running critically low by April.
British manufacturing companies, however, have stepped in and turned their production facilities over to gowns, masks and gloves. Now, Marsden has joined the efforts, with a lightweight, high quality reusable face shield.
It can be incredibly difficult to know which medical weighing scale to buy with so many different terms and accuracies mentioned.
What do M and CE stand for, and what does Class III Approved mean? We intend to clear these up for you in this blog post.
It doesn’t look like we will not be returning to the gym any time soon, so it’s more important than ever to start working out at home and keep fit.
There’s a lot of exercises out there and it’s not always clear about the benefits that they offer us; so, we’ve created this handy guide to the 10 exercises we’d recommend doing during lockdown to correctly target all your muscles. These can be performed as a circuit or on a rep basis.
