LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – USA Luge and Zacurate, Inc. announced Monday a one-year partnership where the company will supply the national governing body with Zacurate 500E Premium Fingertip Pulse Oximeters. The agreement commenced Oct. 1, 2020 and extends until Sept. 30, 2021. Zacurate is the leading international online retailer of digital fingertip pulse oximeters.

Zacurate’s 500E Premium Fingertip Pulse Oximeter is perfect for world-class athletes and the serious recreational competitor looking for critical data before and after workouts and exercise. The oximeter is recognized as one of the most accurate pulse oximeters on the market. It has an accuracy deviation of plus or minus 1 percent.

The fingertip item provides a visual representation of the pulse rate and the amount of blood flowing through the user’s blood vessels. Its OLED screen comes with adjustable brightness. The product is just 2.25 inches long, 1.2 inches wide and 1.35 inches in depth. If a LED display is preferred, Zacurate’s 500DL Pro Series Fingertip Pulse Oximeter is an equally outstanding alternative.

"Partnering with Zacurate helps the sports medicine staff at USA Luge in two critical areas,” said Matt Oakes, USA National Team head trainer. "The fingertip monitors provide an easy and accurate way to track the health of our athletes and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the data also helps inform the team's overall performance decisions as we move toward the upcoming season, critical to our preparations for the Games in February of 2022.”

“The staff at Zacurate is very happy to assist USA Luge’s efforts for continued excellence,” said Dr. Leon Lim, founder and CEO of Zacurate. “We know that this is a crucial season for the luge team as they seek to improve their performances in the run-up to Beijing. Beyond supplying our oximeters, we stand ready to provide any help they might need to maximize the use of our products. We wish them great health and fast sliding.”

    Why does my meter often fail to measure heart rate and oxy %. Do my hands have to be warm
    Zacurate replied:
    Hi! I am sorry that you are having trouble registering your oxygen level and pulse/heart rate with the pulse oximeter. Please note that when your blood perfusion level is low and when your hands are cold, the device may have a hard time registering a reading. We suggest that you warm your hands and fingers before taking the measurements. You can do this simply by rubbing your hands together for about 10-20 seconds. Remember your pulse oximeter is measuring your SpO2 and PR based on your blood flow. If the blood flow in your finger drops below a certain level, the pulse oximeter will not be able to function. After inserting your finger, wait about 30 seconds for the readings to stabilize. Some people may require a longer time for the pulse oximeter to optimize its sensitivity. Please also make sure that you keep your hand still because any movement can cause the device to keep on resetting itself. This will affect the function of the pulse oximeter.

    I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you require further assistance.
