    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Silicon photonics technology company Rockley Photonics has unveiled a health monitoring solution that it is calling a “clinic-on-the-wrist” digital health sensor system. Through the technology, which uses a miniaturized chip that provides continuous, noninvasive monitoring of core biomarkers, Rockley expects to be able to overcome the key challenges associated with mobile wellness monitoring.

    Many wearable consumer electronic devices use green light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to monitor heart rate. Rockley said its infrared spectrophotometers can detect and monitor a much wider range of biomarkers, which, could dramatically increase the functionality of wearable devices. The central and differentiating element of the sensing…
