Patient Monitoring

Glass optical fibers not only transmit light to the body, but also conduct the light that reflects off of tissue to a sensor. Vital signs such as blood oxygen levels can then be calculated with the help of sophisticated algorithms.

Our light weight, fiber optic cables extruded with biocompatible sheathings improve patient comfort by greater flexibility, even with multiple channels. This allows the sensor to remain on our patient during long-term monitoring to better ensure their health and safety.

Thanks to metal-free cables and finger clips, the medical staff and physicians can rely on the bio signals that are constantly sent. This means the sensor remains on the patient during the entire exam, even while the MRI is being used. This translates into safety for both the patient and the doctor without causing a disturbance.

These cables are used in the area of pulse oximetry or shock monitoring, but also optical topography.
