    Marsden M-125 Column Scales

    The Marsden M-125 is an entry-level Class III Approved column scale. It features a completely redesigned, easy-to-use indicator, a 250kg capacity, and weight readings to the nearest 100g. The scale can be used to calculate BMI and BSA.

    What is BSA?

    BSA, or Body Surface Area, is the calculated surface area of the human body. BSA is 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.

    BSA is often recommended as the principal basis for drug dosage as the rate of metabolism or redistribution of a drug is proportional to metabolic rate, which in turn reflects heat losses, which as for any warm object, are generally proportional to the surface area.

    There are many different formulas used to calculate BSA, but DuBois, the most popular and believed to be the most accurate, is the formula used by this scale.

    We believe Marsden is the first digital weighing scales manufacturer in the world to include a BSA calculation function on a weighing scale. You can read more about BSA here. 

    Why would I need to use Class III Approved scales?

    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.

    Every Class III Approved scale is built, tested, verified, and calibrated to meet a specific standard. Class III Approved medical scales 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-125?

    As Marsden’s most affordable column scale, the M-125 is ideal for GP surgeries, health centres, and clinics. The BSA can benefit renal, oncology, and other areas where clear BMI, BSA, and weight information is needed. Outpatient departments can benefit from the large display and 250kg capacity.

    Why should I purchase the M-125 column scales?

    If you need a professional, Class III Approved weighing scale with all the basic essentials you need in a scale, choose the M-125.

    As well as BMI and BSA calculation, this scale has Hold and Tare features. A large, clear 3cm LCD display, fitted to a column and situated at waist level, means weight readings are clear and easy to read. The scale is powered by replaceable batteries or can be powered from the mains by the adaptor, which is supplied. With six AA batteries, battery life can last an incredible 180 hours.

    The M-125's base has wheels fitted for easy movement of the scale between rooms, and the column and base are robust enough to withstand years of regular use. A height measure can also be purchased with the scale - this can be selected above. The HM-201M Height Measure has measures from 60cm to 2m in increments of 1mm.
