  • Publication number: 20120283535
    Abstract: A method and system for determining a person's heart pulse rate in noisy environments is provided. The method of determining a person's heart pulse rate includes radiating first and second wavelengths of light towards a tissue, measuring and storing a first and second set of parameter values from the signals reflected back from the first and second wavelengths respectively. The first set of parameter values represents a first signal corresponding to a combination of the heart pulse rate and extraneous noise and the second set of parameter values represents a second signal mainly comprising extraneous noise. The heart pulse rate is obtained by deducting the second set of parameter values from the first set of parameter values.

  • Patent number: 7650176
    Abstract: A non-invasive device and a system for monitoring and measuring blood saturation and heart pulse rate of a baby or infant is provided. The device includes a housing unit configured to be integrated within apparatus, which is attachable proximate to a limb being measured. The housing unit includes at least one light source, providing light directed toward the surface of the limb, a light detector spaced apart from the light source and sensitive to intensity levels of the light reflected from the limb and a processing unit for processing the intensity signals received from the light detector for producing output signals. The device may determine the level of the blood constituent and may also use this level for monitoring and/or to activate an alarm when the level falls outside a predetermined range.

  • Patent number: 7359741
    Abstract: The present invention provides a sensor for radiance based diagnostics of body tissues comprising a performing component and an adhering component, the performing component comprising at least one radiance source for radiating a tissue and at least one detector for detecting rays emitted from the radiance source. The adhering component is capable of fastening the performing component to a tissue such that the radiance source and detector are facing and contiguous with the tissue, and such that when operative, the adhering component hermetically fastens the performing component to the tissue to the extent that the detector only receives rays which are reflected from within the tissue. The sensor may include a controlling device which senses external conditions and which is capable of controlling the sensor in response to the sensed conditions.
