  • Patent number: 10932072
    Abstract: Systems and methods for optically measuring displacement of an element include an emitter for emitting an optical signal, a first detector for detecting reflections of the optical signal from the element, a second detector for detecting reflections of the optical signal from a raised cover structure, a processor for receiving the detected reflections from the first and second detectors and removing distortions in the detected reflections from the first detector using the detected reflections from the second detector.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20190150839
    Abstract: Device for detecting characteristic signals of tissues and materials and methods for calculating thereof. Apparatus and methods for detecting the presence of tissue (skin) in pulse oximeter are disclosed. Specifically, analysis using optical techniques are used to identify characteristic signals of different compositions of matter. The present application discloses using a plurality of photodetectors at different distances from a source to measure light scattering through a variety of materials, and more specifically, to detect the presence of tissue.
