MINNEAPOLIS, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of physiological monitoring solutions, made history today by announcing the world's first Bluetooth(R)-enabled fingertip pulse oximeter, Onyx(R) II, Model 9560 is now certified as compliant to the Continua(TM) Version One Design Guidelines. By using the Bluetooth Health Device Profile (HDP) and ISO/IEEE 11073 data protocol, this Continua(TM) Certified product signifies a major step in the adoption of interoperable standards in telemedicine and chronic disease management such as COPD, CHF and asthma.

Dedicated to developing cross-industry standards to reduce the cost of healthcare delivery, Nonin is working with many Continua partners to achieve this goal. "I am proud to announce the certification of the first Continua Bluetooth device, a fingertip pulse oximeter from Nonin Medical, Inc.," said Rick Cnossen, Continua president and chairman of the board of directors. "The availability of a Continua Certified Bluetooth solution contributes to Continua's mission to establish an ecosystem of interoperable personal telehealth solutions, empowering people and organizations to better manage their health and wellness."

"We are extremely excited about the Continua certification of the Onyx(R) II, Model 9560 and the role it will have in building an interoperable personal health ecosystem," said Jayant Parthasarathy, Ph.D., eHealth Business Manager for Nonin Medical and Chair of Continua's Technical Working Group. "This device is used globally by numerous OEM health management system providers to wirelessly transmit accurate vital signs data between patients and clinicians. We see this as an essential tool for disease management and healthy living."

Nonin recently announced the world's first Continua(TM) Certified product, the PalmSAT(R) 2500 with USB, and now added the first Bluetooth(R) enabled Continua(TM) Certified product to its list of interoperable solutions.
