Abstract

Wearable sensors for noninvasive, continuous, real-Time monitoring of physiologic variables are important for diagnostics and management of diseases, health monitoring, exercise science, and sports medicine. We proposed high-resolution optoacoustic/photoacoustic and optical techniques for noninvasive, continuous, real-Time monitoring of multiple physiologic variables including oxygenation and hemoglobin concentration in tissues and blood vessels, water content, and blood glucose concentration. We developed and built compact systems and miniature sensors based on these techniques and performed in vitro and in vivo tests of these systems in animals and human subjects. High-resolution probing of specific tissue layers or blood vessels provided high accuracy, specificity, and reproducibility of measurements. The obtained results suggest that the high-resolution, wearable sensors may be used for diagnostics and management of diseases in large populations of patients, health monitoring, and improvement of fitness and athletic performance.
