Power Ox makes a power play

Saturday, April 30, 2005

DECATUR, Ala. -- Letco Companies, whose PowerOx system quickly secured a vast customer base with its home oximetry testing technology, has scrapped the PowerOx for the new Instant Diagnostic System (IDS). Letco President Mickey Letson said the transition to IDS will be transparent for the 2,500 customers who are using PowerOx technology on the handheld Palm devices they use to collect and encrypt oximetry data. Unlike PowerOx, Letson said, IDS results can be transmitted to more than one lab.
