Purchase oximeter

Do you work in a low-resource setting, or support organisations that do?

Our pulse oximeter is specially designed for challenging environments, and can be purchased directly for hospitals or projects on approval from Lifebox.

The Lifebox oximeter would be welcome in any operating room around the world, but it’s specially designed for countries where power cuts may be as frequent as biomedical engineers are scarce.

Some useful notes on:

customs clearance Cost of delivery is included, but customs charges are not. Customs clearance must be arranged by the recipient before shipping, as Lifebox cannot be responsible.
power surges The power transformer meets surge: EN61000-4-5 +- 1KV line to line and +- 2KV line to ground on input power lines.  At this level there is no damage or performance degradation to the adapter. If power surges exceed these values then a separate surge protector should be used. If electricity is interrupted during charging, the charging will continue normally when electricity is restored.
warranty Each oximeter device is under warranty for 2 years; each probe for 1 year.  To reclaim, the recipient must return the defective unit to Acare at the recipient’s expense.  Delivery address can be found in the manual that accompanies the oximeter.  Acare will replace the unit (provided the fault is not due to abuse e.g. excessive force, submerged in water) and send it to the recipient at Acare’s expense.
