Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive method for monitoring a person's oxygen saturation. In its most common (transmissive) application mode, a sensor device is placed on a thin part of the patient's body, usually a fingertip or earlobe, or in the case of an infant, across a foot. The device passes two wavelengths of light through the body part to a photodetector.
Mighty Studios recently worked with a prominent integrated circuit maker on a pilot project. The PPG Ring, which uses the company’s newly developed emitter and photo diode offers a dramatically improved signal for readings. Mighty Studios was heavily involved in the engineering and prototyping process, leading to numerous breakthrough discoveries and applications.
