Masimo has announced CE Mark approval and limited market release of Radius-7, the first rainbow SET wearable, wireless monitor for Root patient monitoring and connectivity platform.


Incorporating rainbow SET technology, Radius-7 with Root alerts clinicians – at the bedside or remotely, through the Masimo Patient SafetyNet remote monitoring and notification system.

It can give alerts about critical changes in a patient’s oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration rate, or haemoglobin that may indicate pulmonary, cardiac, or internal bleeding problems.

The Radius-7 can be attached to patient’s arm or can be placed alongside the patient in their bed. The device allows continuous monitoring while the patients are in the bed or out.

The noninvasive device reduces the need for nursing assistance with no need to disconnect and reconnect the cable to get out of bed.

Wireless communication functionality of Radius-7 – either short-range via Bluetooth back to Root or with upgradeable WiFi for long-range communication – ensures the patient can be continuously monitored and connected to caregivers wherever they are in the hospital.

Masimo founder and CEO Joe Kiani said: "In the past, wearable patient monitoring offered only limited measurements that were often plagued by false alarms. Radius-7 allows untethered clinically relevant patient monitoring.

"We expect Radius-7 and Root to change how hospitals think about monitoring, ushering in a new level of patient safety."

Radius-7 is not available for sale in the US.
