MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of noninvasive physiological monitoring solutions, today has introduced its latest Continua™ Certified device, the 1000USB-C USB adapter. Designed for OEM system developers, the 1000USB-C adapter enables any of Nonin's handheld oximeters to conveniently transfer secure data in accordance with Continua Health Alliance guidelines.
The second in a line of USB adapters released by Nonin this year, the 1000USB-C adapter contains three interface ports for simple connection between any Nonin handheld oximeter, patient sensor and receiving device. With this advance, Continua-compliant pulse oximetry (SpO2) data can now be securely transmitted in real time to various service providers such as health care facilities, disease management services or personal health record (PHR)/home telemedicine services.
Nonin's physiological monitoring products for telemedicine are the prevailing gold standard for vital sign assessment in a wide range of chronic diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic heart failure (CHF) and asthma. This announcement is further evidence of Nonin's leadership position in telemedicine and commitment to the advance of innovative, interoperable solutions designed to contain costs in the health care market.
Since certifying the world's first Continua™ Certified product in January of 2009, Nonin continues to add interoperable solutions across its entire product line and is a proud recipient of Frost and Sullivan's 2009 North American Product Line Strategy Award in Remote Patient Monitoring. Earlier this year, Nonin showcased its Onyx® II, Model 9560, the world's first Continua Certified Bluetooth® fingertip pulse oximeter, as part of the first end-to-end Continua-connected health solution with partners IBM and Vignet.
