Advertised on ebay but sent from the company in china.
I like the CMS-50F but sometimes get bad nights data from sensor coming off.
It looks to me like these disposable sensors work like the ones I had in the hospital, where they are taped onto a finger. It also looks to me as if something like cloth tape could be used when the 5 tapes have been used. Maybe keep one for a pattern. Anyway, looks interesting to me, and wanted to let others know these are available.
Since I toss and turn, I had the same initial problem with my CMS-50F and resolved the problem by taping the wire leading to the sensor lightly to the top of my hand.
I did not circle the tape around my wrist for fear of cutting off the blood if it was too tight.
Seemed to work great for me. Now if only I can tame the arrhythmia that produces drop-outs and wonky results.
You might also want to chat with Kevin Cooper (Vendor #19) who has a wealth of information on the CMS-50F as well as being a stand-up guy.
Best of luck resolving the issue.

that sounds like a good idea. I already tried something similar, I pass the oximeter cable through the rubber ring that is part of the clasp. So that there is some friction to keep it on, only maybe not enough. Also a baby sock over my fingers, which is just recently.
Another question on the cms50f, when I import the data, it starts at the correct ime but spans a longer duration on the graph then what was run, also there seems to be gaps in the data. Anyone else experience this?
