about non-contact monitoring
Monitoring of heart rate and heart rate interval during fitness and medical illness has traditionally required wired devices. Even more recent wrist and head monitors often fail during exercise. By measuring at multiple wavelengths, BodySigns® is able to monitor from a distance, during movement, even underwater
Detection of Heart Rate
BodySigns® uses visible light spectroscopy (VLS) to measure movement of the blood from the heartbeat, and separate this from movement of the body or the loose-fit sensor. By analyzing the reflected white light from the tissue BodySensor™ is able to assess the adequacy of oxygen delivery (blood flow) to specific tissues and organs, respiratory rate, and even recognize living from dead tissue.
