Metahealth sensors

Will the upcoming MetaHealth sensor (released later this year) also contain an led to measure oxygen saturation in the blood. Would be really helpful as a quick way to measure oxygen percentages in the blood and it shouldn't make the board much bigger :)

Thanks for your help!

  • The MetaHealth board has a green LED for measuring heart rate only.  Furthermore, the MetaHealth is for wearing on the wrist not the thumb, which is a more ideal placement for pulse oximetry.  
  • Can you tell already now, if the device will provide the raw PPG sensor signal, i.e. the unprocessed raw signal coming from the A/C converter? Most wearables only provide heart rate in terms of beats pr. minute. 
  • No, the unprocessed ppg signal will not be provided.
  • Thanks for clearing that you.

    Is there a provision to add more sensors ( to get PPG raw signals ) through add on.
    Will the casing (of Cenv) allow such addition with some modification?
    the add on boards will be a modified version of TI's EEG / PPG proto boards.

    Unless things have changed, the PCB has 3V analog and digital gpio pins
