• Non-invasive

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

  • Reusable

    OxyPrem is a reusable device which offers better clinical care due to its high quality, while substantially reducing waste.

  • Precise

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

  • Reliable

    High-quality components and advanced algorithms allow for superior reliability, especially in low-perfusion environments.

  • Easy-to-use

    Several easy ways to attach OxyPrem to the patient (bandages, CPAP, ...).
    Simple disinfection using alcoholic wipes.

  • Comfortable

    OxyPrem's glue-free fixation preserves the skin, and its very soft silicone hull is highly comfortable to 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.
