Photoplethysmography (PPG)

Photoplethysmography, or PPG, measures changes in blood volume caused by the heart’s pumping action by illuminating the skin with a light-emitting diode (LED) and measuring changes in light absorption with a photodetector. Biostrap provides precise measurements of important health biometrics through complex analysis of the PPG waveform.

Graph Illustrating Cardiovascular Pressure Waveform: Detailed Scientific Representation of Cardiac Cycle Pressure Variations

This comprehensive graph showcases a cardiovascular pressure waveform with meticulously labeled points, including the systolic peak, diastolic peak, systolic trough, diastolic trough, and dicrotic notch. By illustrating these critical pressure variations over time within the cardiac cycle, this detailed scientific representation provides valuable insights for understanding cardiovascular dynamics.

Wavelength Matters

Biostrap uses a proprietary IR/Red optical sensor that captures high signal-to-noise and high-resolution PPG measurements from deep beneath the skin (up to 10x deeper than green light) to extract reliable biometrics. The Biostrap PPG signal is not affected by high melanin content or skin tone, tattoos, or other physiological variations that impact the reliability of other PPG devices which use a green light source.

Superior Measurements

Biostrap uses a cutting-edge optical sensor that captures high signal-to-noise and superior high-fidelity PPG measurements from deep beneath the skin to extract reliable biometrics along with advanced and validated PPG features and fiducial points. Fiducial points serve as reference markers in the PPG waveform, pinpointing specific events such as the peak of the heartbeat. These points are essential for accurate analysis and play a pivotal role in decoding complex physiological signals.

Raw Waveform Data

Most wearables discard raw waveform data to improve calculation speed but sacrifice data quality and integrity. Saving raw waveform data enables in-depth analysis of health biometrics using powerful cloud-based algorithms. Biostrap provides access to raw and/or processed PPG, gyroscope, and accelerometer data to researchers via the RPM dashboard.

Advanced Cloud Processing

The Biostrap Pulse Engine ™ is a cloud-based computational tool which filters, cleans, processes, and analyzes PPG waveform data to obtain various metrics. Motion artifacts and irregular waveform patterns are filtered out to not affect outcome measures.

Smartphones display biometric health results, showcasing oxygen saturation, heart rate, stress index, HR variability & arterial health scores vs baseline.

Advanced Biometrics

From each PPG waveform measurement, the Biostrap Pulse Engine™ extracts vital biometrics such as heart rate, heart rate variability, and respiratory rate. The Pulse Engine™ also performs an in-depth analysis of every detected heart beat to obtain cardiovascular properties including arterial and peripheral elasticity along with additional beat shape features that can be utilized for assessing various health conditions or diseases.

Novel Biometrics

At Biostrap, we believe that the PPG waveform contains much more physiological information yet to be discovered. Stay tuned as we continue to push the boundaries of biometric data science to derive additional health metrics.
