Sponsored by Businesswire

Masimo (NASDAQ:
MASI) and Mdoloris
Medical Systems
announced today the CE marking of the Mdoloris
Analgesia Nociception Index (ANI®) module for the Masimo Root®
Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Hub, the first commercially
available result of a Masimo Open Connect® (MOC) third-party
partnership, between Mdoloris and Masimo.

Masimo’s unique approach to medical technology integration through
Masimo Open Connect partnerships addresses some of the major barriers to
new technology adoption in patient monitoring. The Root platform’s open
architecture and advanced connectivity enable third-party companies to
bypass barriers and the time it takes for traditional multi-parameter
monitor integration by controlling their own Root integration projects.
Third parties can then independently develop, obtain regulatory
approvals, and commercialize their own external MOC-9® module
or MOC-C® app for Root using Masimo’s MOC software
development kit and support from Masimo’s engineering and distribution

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “We are proud to announce
ANI, the first commercially available third-party MOC-9 module for Root,
the first of many to come. With the ongoing expansion of its
capabilities, Root becomes a more powerful bedside platform than ever.
We believe that Root with Masimo Open Connect can do for patient
monitoring what the PC did for computing: speed up the patient
monitoring innovation cycle, reduce the cost of patient monitoring, and
prolong the useful life of the equipment hospitals invest in.”

“We are delighted to be able to announce that ANI is now cleared for
sale in the EU,” said Fabien Pagniez, Founder and CEO of Mdoloris
Medical Systems. “We consider Masimo to be the most innovative company
in the patient monitoring space and we believe Root offers a unique and
compelling solution for implementing our ANI technology.”

ANI on Masimo Root has not received 510(k) clearance and is not
available for sale in the United States.

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive
monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and
reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET®
Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been
shown in over 100 independent and objective studies to outperform other
pulse oximetry technologies.1 Masimo SET® has also
been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity
in neonates,2 improve CCHD screening in newborns,3
and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™
in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.4-6
Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million
patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the
world,7 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10
hospitals listed in the 2018-19 U.S. News and World Report Best
Hospitals Honor Roll.8 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow®
Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous
monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured
invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen
content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin
(SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more
recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2,
pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®,
an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the
Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) interface, enabling
other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement
capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth
with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor,
iSpO2® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the
MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter. Additional information about Masimo
and its products may be found at

ORi has not received FDA 510(k) clearance and is not available for sale
in the United States. The use of the trademark Patient SafetyNet is

About Mdoloris Medical Systems

Mdoloris (,
a medical devices manufacturer, was created in June 2010 out of 23 years
of academic research performed in Lille University hospital, France. It
has an international representation in more than 64 countries and a
scientific, technical and medical acknowledgement. Mdoloris has so far
developed three products, all able to continuously assess the pain level
of patients (the ANI technology for patients older than two years old,
the NIPE technology for neonates, and the PTA technology for pets). Its
innovative technologies provide clinical added value for clinicians who
are not able to communicate with their patients in order to personalize
pain medications and avoid known side effects due to over- and
under-dosage of such drugs. More than 1,200 devices are now used by
anesthesiologists and intensivists worldwide and more than 140,000
patients have benefited from Mdoloris’ technologies. Mdoloris’s
standalone monitor promoting its innovative adult technology has
received 510(k) clearance through the HFVI brand in the US under the
number K142969. Mdoloris recently closed a nine-million euro fundraising
round in order to keep developing new-to-the-world technologies that
always keep one target in mind: helping clinicians improve the quality
of care.
