How Oxitone’s wrist-worn continuous pulse oximeter is bringing the hospital into the home.

Forget the bulky, finger- pinching alligator clip of yore. Leon Eisen, PhD and the team at the Israeli medtech company Oxitone (a StartUp Health co.) have developed the world’s first FDA-cleared, hospital-grade pulse oximeter worn on the wrist like a smartwatch.

The company’s “digital continuous care model” continuously measures the wearer’s blood oxygen levels, giving both themselves and medical staff a detailed insight into the saturation of oxygen in the wearer’s blood — an important signal for potential medical conditions including sleep apnea, heart attack, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), among others.
