Facilities

NEW YORK, February 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SPO Medical Inc. (SPOM)( http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=SPOM.OB), a leading developer of biosensor and microprocessor technologies for use in portable monitoring devices, today announced its first commercial shipments of its recently announced professional pulse oximeters; the PulseOx 6000(TM) and PulseOx 6100(TM).

At the end of the fourth quarter 2007, SPO Medical introduced these two new professional products at the 53rd Annual International Respiratory Congress of the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) in Orlando, Florida and at the 39th MEDICA World Forum for Medicine in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The PulseOx 6000(TM) (finger device) and PulseOx 6100(TM) (hand-held device) are both designed for medical professionals, hospitals and managed care facilities. Based on SPO Medical' proprietary patented algorithms, both the PulseOx 6000(TM) and PulseOx 6100(TM) use Reflective Pulse Oximetry (RPO) technology for accurate and reliable measurements of blood oxygen saturation and heart rate. In addition, these devices utilize the new SPO Medical AutoSpot(TM) technology for accurate measurements even with patients that suffer from low perfusion.

SPO Medical's focus for these products is the professional medical market. Since the announcement of these new products, an order backlog has been building in the Company's major markets, the United States and European countries. Within the United States, SPO Medical will be targeting Hospital GPO's (General Purchasing Organizations) which service thousands of hospital establishments. In addition, the Company will be targeting large medical equipment distributors which service Outpatient Surgery Centers, Integrated Healthcare Delivery Networks and Federal Government facilities.

"Three months ago, we announced the PulseOx 6000(TM) and PulseOx 6100(TM) products; since then, orders have been building in all our major markets," said Michael Braunold, President and Chief Executive Officer of SPO Medical. "This marks SPO Medical's first entree into the professional healthcare market, after developing a solid reputation over the last three years in the homecare market. These new products further demonstrate our long-term strategy of adapting SPO Medical's patented technology platform to new applications, which provide healthcare service providers and consumers with cost-effective life-enhancing information."
