  • Publication number: 20210015365
    Abstract: Optical sensors, systems, and methods are described, which may be used to provide or analyze information about a subject. The optical sensor may be placed in proximity to the subject and may include optical sources and optical detectors. The optical sources may irradiate the subject with optical signals and the optical detectors can detect signals from the subject. Analysis of the detected signals can yield information about the subject.

  • Patent number: 10463255
    Abstract: Optical sources having multiple optical emitters are described, which may be used in a sensor array used to detect optical properties of a subject, including hemoglobin and deoxygenated hemoglobin concentrations. Multiple optical emitters can be positioned within an optical source. The optical source may include a diffuser and one or more optics, which may direct light from the multiple optical emitters along substantially the same optical direction to the diffuser. The diffuser may receive light from the one or more optics and transmit light from the optical source where the transmitted light has a greater angular distribution than light emitted by one of the optical emitters.

  • Publication number: 20140276014
    Abstract: Supports for optical sensors are described. The supports may allow for placement of the optical sensors in close proximity or contact with a subject, such as supporting the optical sensors against a subject's head. The supports may include multiple pieces that can be connected or disconnected. Mechanisms for adjusting the pressure of the optical sensors against the subject may be included with the supports.

  • Patent number: 5458566
    Abstract: A volume sensor is described for automating an extracorporeal system used for the recovery and concentration of salvaged blood. The system includes a disposable plastic reservoir in which blood is collected from the surgical site and stored for processing. Volume is sensed in one embodiment by a strain gage device which is sensitive to vertical forces. In another embodiment volume is sensed by measuring the transit time of an ultrasonic pulse-echo signal generated by piezoelectric transducer.
