We address both technical and clinical issues of wearable biosensors (WBS). First, design concepts of a WBS are presented, with emphasis on the ring sensor developed by the author's group at MIT. The ring sensor is an ambulatory, telemetric, continuous health-monitoring device. This WBS combines miniaturized data acquisition features with advanced photoplethysmographic (PPG) techniques to acquire data related to the patient's cardiovascular state using a method that is far superior to existing…

Subcutaneous blood pressure monitoring with an implantable optical sensor

The in vivo measurements presented here show that the deviation to intra-arterial reference measurements of the systolic blood pressure in a physiologically relevant range is only 5.5 mmHg, demonstrated for more than 12 000 pulses, which makes the presented sensor a grade B blood pressure monitor.

Quantitative evaluation of photoplethysmographic artifact reduction for pulse oximetry

PPG artefact reduction should be incorporated into conventional pulse oximetry measurement, even in the absence of end-user artefact problems, according to the observed reduction of slight artefacts.

Second derivative of photoplethysmogram in children and young people.

The length of the vascular system and the inner diameter and wall thickness of vessels may modify the SDPTG wave pattern in the growth period and as the effects of these factors decrease, the increase in intravascular pressure and decreasing wall elasticity due to aging may affect the wave pattern.
