Title
(EN) CUSTOM HEARING DEVICE EQUIPPED WITH OPTICAL SENSORS FOR BIOMETRICAL SENSING
(FR) DISPOSITIF AUDITIF PERSONNALISÉ ÉQUIPÉ DE CAPTEURS OPTIQUES POUR UNE DÉTECTION BIOMÉTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A customized in-ear hearing device includes a light source, photodetector, light emission window, and light transmission window. The light source and the photodetector together function as a physiological sensor by emitting light from the light source through the light emission to the skin of a user's ear canal, and detecting at the photodetector light reflected by the skin that passes through the light detection window. The light emission window and light detection window are located at a customized portion of the sidewall of the device that contacts the skin in the ear canal.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif auditif intra-auriculaire personnalisé qui comprend une source de lumière, un photodétecteur, une fenêtre d'émission de lumière et une fenêtre de transmission de lumière. La source de lumière et le photodétecteur fonctionnent ensemble en tant que capteur physiologique par émission de lumière à partir de la source de lumière, à travers l'émission de lumière vers la peau du canal auditif d'un utilisateur et détection au niveau de la lumière de photodétecteur réfléchie par la peau qui passe à travers la fenêtre de détection de lumière. La fenêtre d'émission de lumière et la fenêtre de détection de lumière sont situées au niveau d'une portion personnalisée de la paroi latérale du dispositif qui est en contact avec la peau dans le canal auditif.
