Measuring Balance In High Altitude
Due to Hypoxia and hypobaric conditions at high altitudes, oxygen saturation decreases. Ataxia might occur and the ability to maintain balance in challenges.This study aimed to determine whether a new balance assessment test, the Zur Balance Scale (ZBS) is sensitive enough to detect changes in the balance at high altitudes.
Oximeter Behavior While Using a Tourniquet
This letter is a case report presenting the behavior of an approved for marketing oximeter device under tourniquet test, while comparing it with another approved for marketing device, the Cnoga TensorTip MTX (this letter is not a clinical trial report). Pulse oximeter is aimed for measuring pulse and arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) in the blood. The Tensor Tip MTX can measure over 15 bio parameters, among them are pulse and oxygen saturation.
New Method for Computing Optical Hemodynamic Blood Pressure
Objective: Hypertension is a major risk indicator for coronary heart diseases, renal failure, stroke and other various illnesses, and it is the primary global risk for mortality. Blood pressure measurements are essential for managing the risks resulting from hypertension. In this paper we will present a new device, the TensorTip MTX, which computes hemodynamic blood pressure noninvasively. Methods: This paper presents a technique that uses the color imaging resulting from a set of monochrome light source that traverse the tissue under consideration and is projected onto the color image sensor. A new extended solution of the Windkessel model is being displayed and provides additional insight on various functional resistances rather than a constant resistance.
Case Study for Two Noninvasive Devices Measuring Hemoglobin
Objective: This test report focuses on the evaluation of two noninvasive CFDA approved devices, TensorTip MTX and Radical-7 Pulse CO-Oximeter (Masimo Corporation, Irvine, CA), as part of the exploration of selecting a noninvasive device to be used in the Blood Bank in the Chinese People’s Liberation Army General Hospital, Beijing, China. The aim of the evaluation was to verify the accuracy of hemoglobin measurements of each device independently vs the hospital clinical laboratory reference.
Evaluation of a New Noninvasive Glucose Monitoring Device by Means of Standardized Meal Experiments
Frequent blood glucose readings are the most cumbersome aspect of diabetes treatment for many patients. The noninvasive TensorTip Combo Glucometer (CoG) component employs dedicated mathematical algorithms to analyze the collected signal and to predict tissue glucose at the fingertip. This study presents the performance of the CoG (the invasive and the noninvasive components) during a standardized meal experiment. For the noninvasive (NI) CoG technology, 100% of the data pairs were found in CEG zones A (96.6%) and B (3.4%); 100% were seen in zone A for the invasive component and Contour Next. MARD was calculated to be 4.2% for Contour Next, 9.2% for the invasive component, and 14.4% for the NI component. After appropriate individual calibration of the NI technology, both the NI and the invasive CoG components reliably tracked tissue and blood glucose values, respectively. This may enable patients with diabetes to monitor their glucose levels frequently, reliably, and most of all pain-free.
Device and Method for Noninvasive Glucose Assessment
Intensive monitoring of blood glucose levels is crucial in diabetes management. This article presents a new device, the TensorTip Combo Glucometer (CoG), developed by Cnoga Medical Ltd, which enables to predict capillary tissue glucose concentration noninvasively. The device was clinically evaluated and compared to standard invasive blood glucose monitoring devices in few medical centers and by home users. Based on consensus error grid analysis, more than 98% of the measurements of each study were in zones A (more than 81%) and B (more than 11%). Postmarketing evaluations showed high correlations comparing the CoG to other invasive reference devices. The CoG device employs a unique mathematical approach to predict glucose concentrations based on multiple optical signals. The first clinical results indicate that the device may show appropriate agreement with reference methods to be used for pain-free glucose assessment in daily routine.
