The optical sensor is 1 mm high, 1.6 mm long and 3.2 mm wide and is to be used in mobile devices such as smartphones and wearables. Kyocera designed the sensor as an integrated module that combines a laser diode and a photo diode in a ceramic housing. Devices equipped with the sensor can measure the blood flow volume in the subcutaneous tissue. To do this, the device must come into contact with an ear, a finger or the forehead.

Test models of the sensor modules will be available from April 2017, the technology should be marketable by March 2018.

The market for wearables has grown significantly in recent years, with a particular focus on health and fitness. The development of new mobile health apps is planned for different areas such as chronic diseases, elderly care and wellness. (mz)
