  • Marsden M-610 Portable Wheelchair Weigh Beams

    What is the M-610?

    The Marsden M-610 is a Class III Approved and MDD Approved portable wheelchair scale, consisting of two lightweight beams and an indicator to read the weight. Each beam has a handle and fold-in ramps for portability, and carry cases are available. The M-610 is easy to use, accurate to 100g and perfect for community nurses and healthcare visitors, as well as care homes.

    How do portable wheelchair scales work?

    There are many types of wheelchair weighers available, but for true portability we recommend the M-610.

    The scale runs on rechargeable battery, and each beam has a handle, with the ramps at each end folding in after use. Carry cases are available for each beam. When a patient in a wheelchair needs to be weighed, the two beams are placed on the floor the correct distance apart for the wheelchair wheels, and the scale switched on.

    The patient can then be pushed onto the scale and the weight reading will register on the indicator display. You can remove the weight of the wheelchair, meaning only the patient’s weight is displayed on the indicator, by using the Tare/Preset Tare function.

    Using the full numeric keypad, the patient’s height can also be entered and this means the scale will calculate BMI.

    What is a Class III Approved scale?

    Class III Approved scales are built, tested, verified and calibrated in order to meet certain standards. If a scale is used in the determination of mass in the practice of medicine for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment’ it must be Class III Approved. To give the user assurance of accuracy and reliability, an EU notified body will test Approved scales rigorously.

    Additionally, the M-610 is MDD Approved, meaning it meets strict safety requirements enforced (in the UK) by Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The Medical Devices Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) is one of three directives that cover all medical equipment intended to be used to diagnose, prevent, monitor or treat.

    Who uses the M-610?

    The M-610’s portability makes it ideal for care homes, hospitals and for weighing wheelchairs at home. It has also been a popular choice for community nurses and health visitors for weighing disabled patients.
