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.

How do wireless scales work?
Marsden wireless scales are fitted with a Bluetooth 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.
Who uses the M-420BT?
The M-420BT is, like the standard Marsden M-420, is highly popular as a scale for health visitors, school nurses and GP surgeries - because it provides high accuracy readings and easy to use functions all in a portable design.
However, where the M-420BT is most popular is in telehealth initiatives, because the weight readings can be transferred via Bluetooth to patient records. The Marsden M-420BT allows care providers to monitor patients in their home, with, typically, the weight reading being sent automatically from the scale to a receiving device and then on to a monitoring station.

What is the M-420?
The Marsden M-420 is a lightweight, portable adult floor scale. It’s an easy to use scale, virtually identical to our M-430 Floor Scale, but has a much higher accuracy (50g increments as opposed to 200g). This makes it perfect when a highly accurate weight reading is required.
Why should I choose the M-420 over the M-430?
The M-420 and M-430 are both robust, portable floor scales. They are both Class III Approved and MDD Approved, therefore approved for weighing in a medical environment for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment.
Where they differ is in their accuracy. As you can read here, the accuracy of the scale you use should be determined by what you are using it for. The 200g accuracy of the M-430 is suitable for many applications, however for more serious applications - such as weighing children, or weighing adults for critical treatment, the 50g accuracy of the M-420 will be more appropriate.
The 50g graduations will allow you to get a much clearer picture of changes in patient weight.
Who uses the M-420?
The M-420 is ideal for all hospital wards and departments, with its robust build suitable for constant daily use. Accuracy to 50g means nurses can get high accuracy weight readings for monitoring, treatment and diagnosis purposes. This high accuracy is also essential when weighing diabetic patients, calculating weight for specific antibiotics, for prescribing medication and for weighing children.
What other features does the M-420 have?
The M-420 is covered by the Marsden 4 Year Warranty.
This easy to use floor scale has a non-slip surface, with a robust casing meaning it can withstand years of use. It's light enough to be portable, too, and an optional carry case is available.
To use the scale, simply tap the surface with your foot and it switches on. The digital weight reading can be reversed, so it can face towards or away from the user. The Hold function means the weight reading stays on the screen even after the patient has stepped off.
The M-420 also has a BMI feature - you can enter the height of the patient, and then, when the scale reads the weight, BMI is automatically calculated.
Bluetooth connectivity is available for this medical weighing scale, meaning weight data can be instantly transferred from the scale to a central patient database, via mobile, tablet or PC. This makes the M-420 ideal for speeding up patient weight data capture, and makes it the perfect professional scale for telehealth initiatives.
The scale is powered by 6x AA batteries for over 100 hours of use (6000 weigh ins).
