• Non-invasive

    OxyPrem uses harmless light (more on NIRS) to determine absolute haemoglobin oxygen saturation in any human tissue.

  • Reusable

    OxyPrem offers a two-year sensor lifetime and high component quality, while substantially reducing waste.

  • Precise

    With its excellent performance in repeated placement and its high reading certainty, OxyPrem achieves new levels in precision.

  • Perfusion independent

    High component quality and advanced algorithms provide consistent readings, also across varying perfusion environments.

  • Comfortable

    Due to OxyPrem's glue-free fixation, skin damage from adhesives is avoided.
    Its very soft silicone hull is made for comfortable wear.

  • Versatile

    OxyPrem can be used in any patient at the risk of hypoxia and on any body part which is at least 30 mm thick.

  • Cost efficient

    Since OxyPrem is reusable, costs are reduced drastically when used routinely or over longer time periods.
