What is the M-545?

The Marsden M-545 is a portable, affordable Class III Approved floor scale. It has a separate indicator for weight sensitive environments. It provides accurate weight readings to the nearest 100g, upto a capacity of 250kg.

What is BSA?

BSA stands for Body Surface Area and is the calculated surface area of the human body. For medical purposes BSA is most commonly used by NHS DEXA scanners to help calculate body composition and dosages for anti-cancer agents. In fact, it is an important way to calculate dosages for many medicines.

Since the first BSA formula was created in 1879, there have been many subsequent formulas introduced. Marsden scales - which we believe are the only weighing scales in the world with BSA calculation - use the most popular formula, DuBois. This formula is believed to be the most accurate formula.

Why would I need to use a Class III Approved scale?

The NAWI directive states that all scales ‘used in the determination of mass in the practice of medicine for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment’ must be Class III Approved. Class III Approved scales are used by hospitals, GP surgeries, clinics and pharmacies.

Digital weighing scales that are Class III Approved are built, tested, verified and calibrated to meet a specific standard. They undergo far more testing (by a notified EU body) than non approved scales, providing assurance to the user that they are accurate, reliable and provide repeatable results - essential for medical weighing.

Who uses the M-545?

This highly accurate scale has a separate indicator for weight sensitive environments where private readings are essential, such as GP surgeries, hospitals and clinics. The scale takes up minimum space in consulting rooms and can be stored away when not in use.

Why should I order the M-545?

If you need a Class III Approved weighing scale that’s portable, affordable and has a separate indicator for weight sensitive environments, choose the Marsden M-545.

The M-545 is covered by the Marsden 4 Year Warranty, and is highly robust for years of accurate weighing.

If you need a BMI scale, the M-545 can be used to calculate BMI, as well as BSA. Additionally, the scale has a Hold feature (to stabilise the weight reading on the display) and Tare (to remove unwanted weight from the reading, such as shoes). All features are accessible via the five buttons on the indicator, which has a bright, clear 3cm high LCD display.

The scale is powered by 6x AA batteries (which will provide upto 180 hours of use) or can be powered using the mains adaptor which is supplied. The integrated carry handle makes the scale extra portable, and a carry case can also be purchased.
