Wireless blood flow sensor wraps around arteries, self-resorbs

biosensor
Using exclusively bio-compatible and bio-degradable materials, researchers from the University of Stanford have devised a capacitive-based artery blood-flow sensor which can be read out wirelessly once implanted, and which does not require removal as it self-resorbs after a few months of operation.

The thin flexible device described in a paper titled “Biodegradable and flexible arterial-pulse sensor for the wireless monitoring of blood flow” published in Nature Biomedical Engineering was designed to locally monitor blood flow after complex reconstructive surgeries involving “anastomosis”, the suturing of blood vessels, such as would be the case in cardiovascular, vascular and transplantation operations.

Synchronized PPG and ECG biosensor module targets mobile devices

ECG monitoring via mobileDesigners now have an easier way to deliver both photoplethysmogram (PPG) and electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements for health monitoring from a mobile, battery-powered device.

The MAX86150 from Maxim Integrated Products integrates internal LEDs, photodetectors and an ECG analog front-end (AFE) to provide highly accurate, FDA-certifiable PPG and ECG performance in compact, power-saving designs, including mobile phones, laptops, tablets and smart speakers.
