A team of researchers from the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and experts in the field of diffuse optics are collaborating on the creation of a biophotonic device designed to test the efficiency of individualized COVID-19 treatments targeting the health of the body’s smallest blood vessels. Its device, which is like a common blood pressure measurement unit, gauges microvasculature response to extended arterial cuff blockage in the peripheral muscles, such as those in the forearm, establishing a biomarker of endothelial (and microvascular) health.
