PulseOx 6000(TM) and PulseOx 6100(TM) to be launched at MEDICA in Germany
NEW YORK, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SPO Medical Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SPOM), a leading developer of biosensor and microprocessor technologies for use in portable monitoring devices, today announced that the PulseOx 6000(TM) and PulseOx 6100(TM), two new oximetry devices, will be formally introduced to the public at the 39th MEDICA World Forum for Medicine in Dusseldorf, Germany between 14th - 17th November, 2007.
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's 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, utilizing new AutoSpot(TM) technology to read in low profusion measurements. The products have been granted CE Mark of approval by the European Union and will be commercially available early in the first quarter of 2008.
These ground-breaking medical devices follow the watershed success of the PulseOx 5500(TM). Earlier this year, the Company announced that it sold over 100,000 of the pulse oximetry units, marking a sales milestone that has been achieved within three years of the company's first introduction of the commercial product.
