HTI draws on our expertise in mathematical modeling, physics, and medical devices in securing international patent rights for a wearable system that measures oxygenation of tissue samples in real-time. The device sends light into a subject’s skin at one location and detects it at another. Using a special Monte Carlo algorithm, the amount of oxygen in the subject’s tissue can be determined with a high degree of accuracy.
HTI’s system is protected under US Patent No. 8,941,830, “Systems and Methods for Measuring Oxygenation” and other international patents.
