Irvine, California, USA. December 16, 2012 — Masimo Corporation has launched a pulse oximeter, called iSpO2™, for Apple™’s iPhone, iPad & iPod touch. iSpO2™ uses the same technology found in Masimo’s professional line of pulse oximeters and Pulse CO-Oximeters™ used in hospitals around the world to provide accurate measurements.

Customers can purchase the iSpO2™ Signal Extraction Pulse Oximeter and use their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to check their own blood oxygenation (SpO2), pulse rate, and perfusion index measurements for sports and aviation use. It is not intended for medical use.

After purchasing the iSpO2™ (available at iSpO2.com and Amazon) and connecting it to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, the iSpO2™ application will automatically download. Thereafter, using the iSpO2™ is said by Masdimo to be “as easy as 1-2-3”:

1. Connect the iSpO2™ cable to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
2. Slip the iSpO2™ sensor on your ring finger
3. Your results appear on screen

The iSpO2™ Medical, the professional version for medical use, is pending CE Mark and US FDA 510(k) clearance. Once approved this product will be made available later through Masimo’s existing distribution channels.

According to the company’s CEO, Joe Kiani, Masimo’s mission is to take non-invasive monitoring to new sites and applications. The iSpO2™ for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with 30-pin connector represents their first consumer product and should create myriad new possibilities with the goal of further empowering people.
