Kenek Edge Pulse Oximeter
Affordable, Accurate, Mobile
Personal Vital Signs Measurement
The Kenek Edge pulse oximeter is a sensor and companion app that works with your iOS mobile devices. It measures your blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and heart rate by shining a light through your fingertip and detecting how it is absorbed. It takes just a few seconds and then the results are displayed on your mobile device.
The Kenek Edge pulse oximeter plugs into the audio port on your Apple device to measure, record and export your heart rate and SpO2 vital signs. Because the Kenek Edge pulse oximeter uses the power, processing and display of your mobile device, your results are shown on your mobile device. No batteries are required, and the display is easy to read!

As an exercise physiologist, I’m always looking at ways to monitor acute physiological responses and chronic adaptations to enhance an athlete’s performance. A portable pulse oximeter that can be used with a mobile device, then store the data tied to a particular athlete is a huge benefit in the work that I do.
A high-end, hospital-grade pulse oximeter is expensive and bulky and I wouldn’t send it with an athlete who is travelling. Instead I would give them the Kenek Edge pulse oximeter because of its mobility, ease-of-use, and cost. Another important consideration for this type of mobile technology is having scientific evidence demonstrating measurement accuracy. LGTmedical has a clear history of strong research supporting their products.
