What is the M-600?
The Marsden M-600 is a MDD Approved and Class III Approved hoist weighing attachment, ideal for use in care homes and hospitals. Marsden hoist weighing attachments have a 200kg capacity and graduations to 100g.
What does MDD Approved mean?
If a device is MDD Approved it means that the device meets strict safety requirements which are enforced in the UK by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The Medical Devices Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) is one of three directives which cover all medical equipment, used in diagnosis, prevention, monitoring or treatment.
It is a requirement for hoist weighing attachments to be MDD Approved, and Marsden manufactures the only MDD Approved hoist weighing attachments in the UK.
What does Class III Approved mean?
For medical weighing purposes, Class III Approved scales must be used.
When a medical weighing scale is Class III Approved, it means the scale has been built, tested, verified and calibrated to meet a certain standard. According to the NAWI directive, 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. An EU notified body rigorously tests these weighing scales to assure the user that they are accurate and reliable.
