July 31, 2020 – Masimo (Irvine, CA) has entered into a partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) to be the league’s official supplier of pulse oximetry. As teams return to play, Masimo is supplying the NBA with MightySat fingertip pulse oximeters on its campus in Orlando, Florida.
Since arriving on campus in Orlando on July 7, and for the duration of their stay, each campus resident, including players, coaches, and team and league staff, will daily measure their oxygen saturation, pulse rate, and respiration rate with MightySat as part of the league’s health and safety protocols. MightySat is powered by hospital-grade Masimo SET Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry technology.
The NBA re-started its season July 30 at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida. The 22 teams with the best records as of March 11, when the season was suspended, will compete in eight preliminary “seeding” games before the 2020 NBA Playoffs begin August 17.
