In search of some effective alternative

Whilst such sensors can prove fairly helpful for health conscious people who wish to know the entire health information at the earliest, Samsung might be looking into some effective alternatives in order to convey health monitoring as reported by the latest  patent they have filed for with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

In Accordance to the recent patent, Samsung is now in the lookout for an advanced laser technology to supervise health via its Galaxy devices and Gear wearable products which is known as Laser Speckle Interferometric technology.

This innovative laser speckle system will not only be able to monitor heart rate but will be capable of tracking pulse rate, blood velocity level, skin conditions and blood pressure.

Samsung at first had applied for the patent in September 2015 with no suggestion up to now that they have been given the patent by the USPTO. As such there is at present no time border on when the general public can see this kind of technology implemented within prospect Samsung devices.

It is extremely likely nevertheless that Samsung is still abiding to research and expand this technology unless the company is able to manufacture devices with the technology inside under a trademark.

By means of the laser beam that’s released from the light source and sprinkled onto the skin of the person wearing it, a speckle outline is formed. This is then recorded by the detector which is present inside the system that goes on to calculate specific vitals based on the throbbing of the arteries under the skin.

There is simply no suggestion of whether or not this kind of a system can be more efficient than the sensors that are already in use for a variety of Samsung’s devices at the moment

Moreover, it is completely possible that Samsung might actually not use this tech inside of prospect devices as a whole. However, if they introduce this technology, it would possibly replace the existing types of sensors that Samsung uses at the present times.
