Nonin Medical Inc, the inventor of the finger pulse oximeter, announces that the company’s Onyx II model 9560 fingertip pulse oximeter is now compatible with the 2net platform for wireless health solutions developed by Qualcomm Life Inc.

A cloud-based system designed to be universally interoperable with different medical devices and applications, the 2net platform enables end-to-end wireless connectivity while allowing medical device users and their physicians or caregivers to easily access biometric data. The connection between the 2net hub and Nonin is made via a Continua-compliant Bluetooth wireless technology protocol.

“As a leader in developing noninvasive monitoring devices, we are proud to be the first company to offer a pulse oximeter solution that seamlessly integrates into the 2net platform,” said Mark VanderWerf, VP ehealth for Nonin Medical. “The clinical quality data provided by the Onyx II through the 2net hub and platform will enable clinicians to remotely monitor patients with chronic diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, or asthma.”
