An Introduction to Muscle Oximetry

In most of our daily activities the energy for muscle work mainly comes from oxidation of glucose and lipids in muscle fibers. Optoelectronic devices driven by Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) can play a substantial role in visualizing oxidative metabolism in muscles during rest and exercise: Continuously emitted light of discrete wavelengths between 500 (visible) and 900 […]
