Nonin Medical Inc is celebrating the 35th anniversary of its founding in 1986. Over the past three decades, Nonin has introduced dozens of medical monitoring solutions, including the first portable pulse oximeter and first fingertip pulse oximeter. In this milestone anniversary year, several new product launches are planned for the coming months, which the company says will mark the largest number of new product introductions in the company’s history.
“Nonin’s history has and will continue to include many industry-first devices that have revolutionized patient care, focusing on making pulse oximeters smaller and more reliable, while maintaining best-in-class quality and accuracy for all,” says Nonin Medical cofounder Phil Isaacson, who continues to serve as executive chairman and chief technology officer, in a release.
“We are so proud that for the past 35 years, millions of Nonin’s devices have generated billions of measurements, improving healthcare outcomes for patients in more than 140 countries around the globe,” says Nonin Medical CEO Dave Hemink, in a release. “Nonin’s focus on developing an accurate, reliable and equitable platform—backed by clinical studies and real-world use—as the basis for our devices ensures the company is set up for success and future growth for many years to come.”
Nonin is focused on making strong investments in long-term unmet market-driving technologies, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, high blood pressure, and heart failure. One of Nonin’s most recent introductions is the CO-Pilot, a handheld device with wireless capabilities that helps EMS, firefighters, and military personnel measure five patient parameters following cardiac arrest, traumatic injury, carbon monoxide, or smoke inhalation.
