BUSINESS PLANNING & TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT
Designed and engineered by (Minneapolis) for Hutchinson Technology Inc. (Hutchinson, MN), the InSpectra StO2 tissue oxygenation monitor is the first device to noninvasively measure and continuously monitor tissue oxygenation during resuscitation. Previous technologies required a catheter inserted into the heart to get similar readings. The Inspectra uses light, which is painless, accurate, and provides readings within 20 seconds. The FDA-approved product is lightweight, portablefeaturing an onboard batteryand rugged enough to survive spills, kicks, or a free fall onto a concrete floor. All these factors are must-have attributes for a product that functions in emergency room conditions. Designed for use in multiple configurations, it can sit on a table or bed, or it can be attached to an IV pole. Healthcare professionals can read the product's easy-to-use and intuitive high-resolution display from 20 ft away. The embedded membrane switches and shatterproof glass on the display make the device easy to clean.
