Nonin Medical Wants to Win the Race to Bring a Bluetooth Low Energy–Enabled Medical Device to Market

Nonin Medical's 4100 Patient Module OEM wrist-worn pulse oximeter was among the first Bluetooth-enabled medical devices, and now the company hopes to again beat the competition by being the first to get a Bluetooth low energy–enabled medical device on the market.

Nonin Medical hopes to introduce a Bluetooth low energy-enabled pulse oximeter in early 2013. It will be launched outside the United States first and hit the domestic market as soon as it received FDA approval, says Mark VanderWerf, vice president of ehealth and OEM.
