Nonin Medical Inc has released NoninConnect, a new, Bluetooth Smart enabled wireless finger pulse oximeter, available directly to consumers.
NoninConnect is designed for use by athletes, pilots and Quantified-Self trackers who want to measure their arterial blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate, according to the company. The device does not require a doctor’s prescription.
The company launched the device and offered the first demonstrated at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) beginning on January 7, 2014 in Las Vegas.
NoninConnect easily pairs with Bluetooth-Smart-ready mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows), features a large user-facing display, allows for up to 2,200 spot checks (per two AAA batteries), and uses Nonin CorrectCheck Finger Placement Technology that alerts users for proper finger placement.
The device offers significant advantages over other consumer pulse oximeters for personal health management, according to Mark VanderWerf, Vice President eHealth, for Nonin Medical.
“The NoninConnect is made with the same Nonin medical-grade pulse oximetry technology that we build into our professional pulse oximeters for patients, clinicians and the military. So consumers benefit from the same clinically proven accuracy—but without needing a doctor’s prescription,” VanderWerf said.
Nonin is offering a $10.00 savings for consumers on NoninConnect through January 17, by entering the Promotional Code “CES” at their retail website.
