Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of physiological monitoring solutions, received the 2007 Industry Best Practices Award for Product Differentiation Innovation from Frost & Sullivan. Frost & Sullivan recognizes outstanding industry achievements and the Awards are recognized worldwide by the media, the investment community and end-user markets. The global growth consulting company honored Nonin for its pioneering vision that has transformed the vital sign monitoring industry and brought powerful, portable and easy-to-use pulse oximetry technology to more people and applications worldwide.
"Nonin's PureSAT(R) signal processing and PureLight(R) sensor technologies offer unparalleled blood oxygen saturation level recording and analysis by eliminating the effect of low perfusion and motion artifacts," said the Frost & Sullivan report. With its patented PureSAT technology built into every device, Nonin's robust technology delivers accurate performance in both acute care and alternate care environments.
With well over 1 million oximeters sold worldwide, "Nonin Medical has not only set new standards, but also released the untapped potential in a variety of markets," the report from Frost & Sullivan states. A number of Nonin's innovative "firsts" include the world's first self-contained fingertip oximeter, the first low power handheld oximeter and the first Bluetooth(R) Wireless Oximeter. Because of their accuracy, small size and portability, Nonin's oximeters have opened up a whole new direction in patient care in both acute care and alternate care markets.
As one of the Founding Promoters of the Continua Health Alliance(SM) and a member of the Bluetooth(R) SIG, Nonin has joined hands with some of the finest healthcare and technology companies to improve patient care. These organizations are committed to connecting technology and people through the facilitation of interoperable solutions and information exchange. CEO Gary Tschautscher, also recognized by Frost & Sullivan as CEO of 2007 in North American Patient Monitoring, adds, "We believe the future brings a streamlined environment that eliminates proprietary interfaces and facilitates interoperability with other medical equipment.
