The Open Oximetry Project was created to improve the safety and accuracy of pulse oximeters in all populations. We recognize that many teams and sectors around the world are working on these issues and hope to build a Collaborators' Community of stakeholders from diverse disciplines, geographies, industries, viewpoints and populations, to prevent duplication of efforts, share knowledge, and accelerate progress.
