What is the M-420W?
The Marsden M-420W is a lightweight, portable adult floor scale widely used by health visitors, school nurses and GP surgeries. It has wireless (Bluetooth or Wifi) connectivity for sending patient weight data instantly to a central database. This scale is accurate to 50g.
How do wireless scales work?
Marsden wireless scales are fitted with a Bluetooth or Wifi module. When a patient stands on the scale, the weight reading, once stabilised, will transmit from the scale to another device.
Currently, Marsden does not provide software for receiving data from wireless scales, however in cases where our customers have purchased wireless scales the software generally works in the same way. The software is set up to receive the data from the scale instantly as soon as the weight reading stabilises on the display, and populates the record for that patient.
In some cases the software will automatically calculate BMI if the patient’s height is inputted; otherwise, this information can be sent from the scale. If the date and time is set up on the scale, this will be sent via Bluetooth or Wifi also.
Should I choose Bluetooth or Wifi?
Marsden wireless scales can be purchased with either Bluetooth or Wifi connectivity. Each has its own benefits, and which one you choose will likely depend on where and how you are using your weighing scales.
Wifi connectivity is usually the choice for hospitals. This is because it is fast, secure and for those new hospitals built with Wifi in mind, it is easy to set up and connect to patient record systems.
Bluetooth scales cannot connect to systems over as long a distance as Wifi, however creating software and connecting it to our Bluetooth scales is easier. Marsden medical scales that are equipped with Bluetooth connectivity have formed part of telehealth initiatives across the UK and in Europe, where the simple protocols have meant they can be set up transmit patient weight and BMI information to purpose-built capturing software, quickly and easily.
