INTRODUCTION
The MUW Health and Fitness scale provides the weight and height of a patient
before calculating the BMI based on the results. Each result will be displayed on the
Indicator and held until the result is cleared, the BMI result can be used to help
evaluate some ones overall health. Units of weighing are Kg, Lbs, and Lbs and
Ounces. Height measurements are displayed in cm, feet and inches, and inches.
There is an internal rechargeable battery as well as wheels fitted to the base that
make the MUW totally portable. The results can be sent to a printer or PC via the
RS232 communication port, either manually or automatically.

SET UP
2.1
UNPACKING AND SETTING UP YOUR MUW
The MUW has been packed in such a way to make it quick and easy for the USER to
assemble, please follow the instructions as below.
1) Remove the base and pillar sections from the packaging.
2) Lift the lower pillar section and place it with the screw holes at the rear onto
the back of the base allowing for the cable to hang freely in the open area.
3) Fit and tighten the 4 x M5 x 15 bolts and washers through the fixing plate of
the lower pillar section and into the base then slide the pillar cover down so
that it locates securely. Fix the pillar cover at the rear using 2 x M4 x 10
screws.
4) Lift the central pillar section into position and slide it with the screw holes at
the rear onto the fixing insert ensuring the cable hangs freely inside the pillar.
5) Fit and tighten 4 x M4 x 10 screws through the pillar and into the insert.
6) Lift the top pillar section into position and slide it onto the fixing insert with
the sensor housing facing the front, again ensuring the cable hangs freely
inside the pillar.
7) Fit and tighten 4 x M4 x 10 screws through the pillar and into the insert.

The MUW comes with 4 x wall fixing brackets that can be secured to the pillar
before fixing to the wall. If the wall fixing brackets are being used attach these
when you fix the M4 x 10 screws to the pillar fixing inserts. Fasten securely to the
wall once you have selected the position the MUW will be used in.
3.0
LOCATING AND PROTECTING YOUR SCALE
Avoid extremes of temperature. Do not place in
direct sunlight or near air conditioning vents.
Avoid unstable power sources. Do not use near large
users of electricity such as welding equipment or
large motors. Do not let the balance battery go flat.
If you are not using it for a long time you should
charge the battery periodically to make sure the
battery does not lose its charge.
Keep free from vibration. Do not place near heavy or
vibrating machinery.
Avoid high humidity that might cause condensation.
Keep away from direct contact with water. Do not
spray or immerse the balance in water.
Do not place near open windows, air-conditioning
vents or fans that may cause a draft and unstable
readings.
Keep the scale clean. Do not stack material on the
top pan when it is not in use.

REAR PANEL
The rear panel has a connector input for the external power adaptor (12 volts DC
@800ma).
4.2
INTERNAL RECHARGEABLE BATTERY
The scale can be operated from the internal rechargeable battery or using an
adapter. The battery life is approximately 24 hours with the backlight off. Depending
on the usage of the backlight the lifetime of the battery will reduce.
The display will show an indication when the battery needs to be charged. To charge
the battery plug the adapter into the POWER input socket in the rear panel and
connect it to the mains power supply. The charging indicator in the lower left corner
of the LCD will be on to show it is charging and will turn green when the battery is
fully charged.

BASIC OPERATION
5.1
SWITCHING THE BALANCE ON
Plug in the unit using the adapter or use the internal rechargeable battery. It is
recommended that you charge the battery for at least 8 hours before first use.
1) To turn on press the [On/Off] key once and release. The scale will show the
software revision, the battery voltage, and then a self-test before showing the
stable sign and zero weight on the display.
2) The scale can now be used.
3) To turn the scale off after use press the [On/Off] key again. There is an auto
power-off function that will automatically turn the unit off if not used for a
period of time. This can be set in the parameters section 6.0.
5.2
ZEROING
You can press the [Zero] key to set a new zero point and show a zero reading. This
may be necessary if the weight reading is not indicating zero with nothing on the
platform, and should be done if required before each new weighing takes place. The
zero indicator will show up in the upper left corner of the LCD when the scale
displays Zero.
5.3
WEIGHING UNITS
To change the displayed weighing unit, press the [kg/lb] key which will then cycle
you through the available options of weighing units. This can only be done before or
after a weighing takes place.
5.4
HEIGHT UNITS
To change the displayed height measuring unit, press the [cm/ft] key which will then
cycle you through the available options of height measuring units. This can only be
done before or after a weighing takes place.
7

5.5
WEIGHING/HEIGHT/BMI
To determine a person’s weight, height and BMI the patient should stand on the
platform within the marked area and look straight ahead. The ultrasonic sensor will
detect that a person is on the platform signified by the symbol in the upper right
part of the display and start to determine the height. When a stable reading of
weight is obtained the three readings will be displayed.
The results will remain on the display until the [Clear] key is pressed.
Results from a BMI measurement can be determined as the table below.
BMI
Weight Status
Below 18.5
Underweight
18.5 – 24.9
Normal
25.0 – 29.9
Overweight

5.6
PRINTING AND OUTPUTTING THE RESULTS
If a printer or other data collection device is being used the results will be sent
automatically or manually depending on the printing control set up. The data
transmission speed must be set correctly to allow the results to be received.
The Doctor and patients identity number can be programmed into the Indicator to
give you a traceable record which also records date and time.
To enter the Doctors Id press and hold the [Print] key for 2 seconds. The display will
show as below, use the [Print] and [Clear] keys to move the flashing digit and the
[kg/lb] and [cm/ft] keys to enter the Id number you require and press [Zero] to
save.
The display will now show the Patients Id screen, use the keys as above to set the Id
number and press [Zero] to save and exit back to normal weighing.
See section 6.3 and 6.4 for printing controls and data transmission speed options
5.7
CLEARING A PREVIOUS RESULT
Once the results have been calculated and displayed they will remain displayed until
the [Clear] key is pressed. When the patient has stepped off the platform and the
results have been recorded or printed, the [Clear] key can then be pressed which
will return the display to zero ready for the next patient to be weighed.
