BVP Blood Volume Pulse

Blood Volume Pulse (BVP)

Our Blood Volume Pulse (BVP) sensor is an optical, non-invasive sensor that measures cardiovascular dynamics by detecting changes in the arterial translucency. When the heart pumps blood the arteries become more opaque, allowing less light to pass from the emitter on the sensor through to the receiver. The BVP sensor has a plastic clip-on housing for placement on the finger, which houses the light emitter and detector, and also minimizes interferences from external light sources.
