Midas Displays provide a range of displays to the medical industry, and due to this the company was deemed an ‘essential business’ during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Midas have seen a huge increase in the demand for displays from the medical industry, and are working closely with many partners to produce equipment that can be used to identify, and treat, coronavirus patients.
Recently, RS DesignSpark have used a Midas OLED display in a design to help build low-cost Pulse Oximeters. These Oximeters measure oxygen saturation in the blood and can indicate if a patient has an inefficient respiratory system, caused by a range of conditions including: asthma, pneumonia, lung cancer, anemia, and heart defects. Due to the effect that COVID-19 can have on the respiratory system, these devices are being used more, and therefore demand for Pulse Oximeters is increasing.
