What is the M-430BT?
The Marsden M-430BT is a lightweight, portable floor scale with Bluetooth for easy data transfer. This Class III Approved and MDD Approved scale is widely used by GP surgeries and health centres. It has been recognised by telehealth platform as an ideal scale to provide weight management services with their systems, and provides weight reading to the nearest 200g.
How do wireless scales work?
Marsden wireless scales are fitted with a Bluetooth module. The patient stands on the scale and the weight reading (once stabilised) will transmit from the scale to another device.
Presently, Marsden does not provide software for receiving data from wireless scales, however we can provide support and guidance if you are developing your own software to capture data from the scales. We have done this for many telehealth providers across the UK and Europe.
Date, time and BMI data can be sent from the scale via Bluetooth.
Who uses the M-430BT?
The M-430BT's Bluetooth connectivity options mean this scale is ideal for updating medical records via wireless transfer from the scale - either in a community setting or over secure hospital networks, thus reducing the risk of human error.
With Bluetooth connectivity, the M-430 has been highly popular with telehealth providers, as it means patients can be monitored in their own homes and their weight reading sent to a receiving device and then on to a monitoring station. Find out more about wireless scales and telehealth here.
Why should I choose the M-430BT?
The M-430BT is a highly portable scale for use in telehealth initiatives. It is MDD Approved and also Class III Approved which makes it legal to use this medical scale to monitor, diagnose and treat patients and target populations.
The 200g accuracy means that it is sufficiently accurate to weigh many of those with critical long term conditions (primarily COPD, chronic heart conditions, diabetes) and its strength and durability means it will provide accurate weight readings for years.
Even if you do not have systems set up to capture wirelessly-transmitted weight readings from the scale, purchasing the M-430BT means you are future-proofing your medical weighing devices. The straightforward Marsden protocols have made it simple for telehealth platform providers to link to their systems to enable the easy transfer of data from the scale. Weight data (gross weight, net weight, tare, date, time, BMI) is securely and simply transmitted automatically to the clinician by those patients benefiting from home monitoring.
An automatic hold of weight feature means that the patient does not need to bend down to stabilise the weight.
This scale is covered by the Marsden 4 Year Warranty.
