OxiCal (2012-13)

Pulse oximetry is the standard for continuous and non-invasive patient monitoring of arterial oxygen saturation and heart rate in a clinical setting. Currently, pulse oximeter calibration is conducted by inducing hypoxemia in healthy human volunteers. This method of calibration is expensive and time consuming for manufacturers, and uncomfortable for human volunteers.

Oxical has developed an artificial finger to improve the calibration process and accuracy, making the use of human volunteers a thing of the past. Our approach enables accurate light attenuation simulation of various conditions of age and health. Ever wonder what is your oxygen saturation (SpO2) level? Come to OxiCal and measure your SpO2!
