Nonin Medical is a technology-driven company and a leader in developing high performing, low cost, easy-to-use noninvasive medical monitoring solutions. Nonin took Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) based oximetry to a new level of clinical utility when it invented the fingertip pulse oximeter, so the move to provide clinicians with an accurate, versatile, portable cerebral oximeter was a natural one. Today, Nonin’s SenSmart Universal Oximetry System takes clinical utility and convenience to the nth degree, utilizing the same innovative sensing and signal processing technologies that already give millions of clinicians the confidence that the numbers they see reflect their patients’ true physiology.
