The Lightman SpO2 Sensor Tester is a hand-held, portable
micro spectrometer that tests pulse oximeter sensors in isolation from the
monitor, easily operated by non-technicians. It can be used on the ward, in the
operating theatre or wherever it is needed for instant sensor accuracy
The Electrode Company's research and development has
revolutionized the accuracy of pulse oximeter sensor measurement.
Further information on The Lightman
The Lightman is unique, it performs a vital job that no
simulator or other sensor tester can do.
The Lightman SpO2 Sensor Tester
is a micro spectrometer. It tests the most vulnerable part of the oximeter
system - the sensor LEDs. It is the only device on the market today that
tests LED wavelength accuracy.
It tests LED wavelength accuracy,
intensity, incipient failure, and any wavelength drift. Additionally, the
Lightman tests photodiode sensitivity and for intermittent cable breaks. A
change in any of these can cause pulse oximeter testers to become in accurate.
