Presentation Title: Implantable, battery-free, Bluetooth-enabled, multiwavelength spectroscopy device for the remote monitoring of physiological biomarkers
Abstract: Spectroscopy use is limited due to the innate limitation of light penetration depth. The recent miniaturization of optical sensors and advanced microprocessors enabled the use of spectroscopy systems in compact implantable formats. Our lab aims to evaluate the use of spectral sensors to monitor physiological biomarkers via a clinically translational implant. We integrated the miniaturized spectrometers onto implantable platforms allowing for red and near-infrared LED capabilities. We then demonstrated its functionality via in-vitro studies and in-vivo rodent studies. The data received was analyzed for breathing rate and heart rate. By showing that our technology could detect these biomarkers, we demonstrate the use of the first-of-its-kind, implantable, multi- wavelength, Bluetooth-operated, RF utilizing, modular-biosensor, in tracking deep tissue hemodynamics. Currently, we are further displaying device vitality in clinical settings via hypoxia studies and extending its wireless power capabilities.
