Integrated PPG and ECG biosensor module for mobile devices

Integrated PPG and ECG biosensor module for mobile devices
Designers now have an easier way to deliver photoplethysmogram (PPG) and electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements for health monitoring from a mobile, battery-powered device. The new MAX86150 from Maxim Integrated is a biosensor module, comprised of internal LEDs, photodetectors and an ECG analogue 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.

Piezoelectrics are the new gymnasts in healthcare sensors

Piezoelectrics are the new gymnasts in healthcare sensors
Healthcare electronics is rapidly deploying for wellness, electroceuticals, intrusive medical procedures and more, powered by new technologies. Much of it is trending to diagnostics and treatment on the move and removing the need for the patient to perform procedures on time. Instruments become wearables including electronic skin patches and implants.

Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors

Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors
From quantum sensors to sensor pills that you swallow to soft sensors that can be printed on gummy bears: new sensor technologies will improve medical care. Sensors are now an integral part of modern medicine. They are used to monitor bodily functions as well as in diagnostics and treatment. They record bioacoustic signals, such as heart and lung sounds, biothermal signals like body temperature, and biochemical, bioelectrical, biomagnetic, biomechanical, and biooptical signals.

Temperature sensors help engineers reduce design complexity

Temperature sensors help engineers reduce design complexity
Texas Instruments has introduced a new temperature sensor family that offers ±0.1°C accuracy across a wide temperature range and helps simplify system design for industrial and medical applications. The TMP117 is the first single-chip temperature sensor to offer similar performance to platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) while significantly reducing design complexity and power consumption, and the digital temperature sensor for medical applications, supports requirements for medical thermometers.

Electronic skin patches: beyond medtech

Electronic skin patches: beyond medtech
  Electronic skin patches are a technology with great potential, largely within the healthcare sector. This is because in standard form they can monitor biology; such as glucose levels and activate attached components such as a diabetes medicine dispenser, with a comparatively unobtrusive form factor.

Wearable sensors in healthcare

Wearable sensors in healthcare
By 2050, there will be around 83.7 million senior citizens in the United States, increasing rapidly from 49.2 million in 2016. The ageing population across the western world is no surprise to anyone in the healthcare profession, but medical technology (MedTech) has to adapt to meet these changing needs.

Musical sensor shows bad medicine plays false note

Musical sensor shows bad medicine plays false note
What if a single musical note could mean the difference between life and death? A new sensor based on a 3,000 year old African musical instrument can be used to identify substances, including a poisonous chemical sometimes mistakenly added to medicines. The mbira sensor, which can be constructed from off-the-shelf or discarded materials, could offer pharmacists and consumers in the developing world inexpensive protection from counterfeit and adulterated drugs.
