Headquartered in Calgary, Canada, Kent holds multiple patents in medical technology and continues to provide innovative and advanced diagnostic imaging solutions to aid healthcare systems nationally and internationally.

Kent's KD203 is U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) cleared, and Health Canada licensed. The device is available for sale in the United States and Canada. Improving on Kent's previous KC103, the handheld Kent KD203 is intended for use by healthcare professionals as a non-invasive tissue oxygenation measurement system that reports oxygen saturation (StO2), relative oxyhemoglobin level (HbO2), and relative deoxyhemoglobin (Hb) level in superficial tissue. Kent's multispectral imaging technology displays two-dimensional color-coded images of tissue oxygenation of the scanned surface and reports multispectral tissue oxygenation measurements for selected tissue regions. Tissue oxygen saturation measurements provide critical information to help physicians determine at risk tissue and guide treatments to optimize patient outcomes.
