Taiwan Biophotonic Co. Receives CE Mark to Launch World's First Medical Smart Watch for Monitoring Heart Rate and Blood Oxygen

Taiwan Biophotonic Co. (tBPC), a medical device company and provider of non-invasive vital signs sensing solutions, today announced the CE Marking and the debut of the industry's first finger-free wrist pulse oximeter, the oCareTM Pro 100, which is a quantum leap forward in the wearable healthcare and medical devices space.

tBPC's Wrist Pulse Oximeter, the oCareTM Pro 100, provides a non-invasive, simple and reliable method to measure and record heart rate and blood oxygen saturation on the wrist, without hindering wires and a fingertip probe that clamps on the finger.
 
This device is designed to follow adult users for use in checking and/or recording of specific physiological parameters. These users may be in hospitals, hospital-type facilities, and a home environment. Professional users can upload timely data measured during daily activities or sleeping for physical or clinical evaluation.
 
The medical smart watch is built with a DOE Lens Reflective PPG Sensor (oCareTM Sensor) mounted on the bottom of watchcase, making its application site the wrist skin. 
 
The DOE Lens Reflective PPG Sensor consists of two or more light emitting diodes (LEDs) and one or more photodiode light detectors (PDs) located side-by-side on a substrate. Light beams are shone from LEDs through the skin to the arteriolar bed of the tissue. The arteriolar bed absorbs variable amounts of light during the pulsations.
 
Changes in light absorption during the pulsing cycle are measured by the PDs as scattered light that is reflected back from the pulsating arteriolar bed. The ratio of light absorbed is translated into a measurement of heart rate and functional oxygen saturation.
 
"Our oCareTM Sensor has high lighting efficiency and less power consumption than most common reflective PPG sensors, LED and photodiode components in the market. In the oCareTM Sensor, each LED die is separately encapsulated with a cannonball-shaped lens, and the photodiode is covered by an encapsulated layer with DOE (micro-structure) surface. These lenses will enhance the LED output radiant flux by more than 50-100%. The DOE will enhance the photodiode sensitivity by more than 10-50%," said Dr. JC Chen, founder and President of tBPC.
 
"The innovative technologies of the oCareTM Sensor are fully protected by tBPC's patents including Taiwan Patent No. 1477759, China Patent No. ZL201310365671.3, U.S. Patent No. 9,506,802 B2, and other Taiwan, U.S.A. and foreign pending patents," Chen added.
