Presentation Summary

  • Wearable, non-intrusive opto-electronic sensing elements to monitor continuously the user's heart rate (HR) and blood oxygenation (SpO2).
  • Multi-channel (such as redundant emitters and receivers) and multi-sensor (such as auxiliary MEMS) approach to compensate artefacts due to body motion, ambient light and body contact.
  • Development and integration roadmap towards a wearable and continuous health status monitor.

Speaker Biography (Jens Arnulf Krauss)

Jens Krauss received his Master in Engineering Sciences in 1991 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ), followed by a two-year research stage at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Back to ETHZ, Mr Krauss lead the biomechanical software team of ESA's human spaceflight Mission TVD. Mr Krauss joined CSEM in 1996 and is heading today the Systems Division with a 100+ scientist and engineers in its strategic Medical Device Technology and Scientific Instrumentation research activity. His expertise in the field of human vital signs monitoring and mobile patient health has led to a series of key patents, successful technology transfers and start-ups.
