Knowledge of the nominal levels of blood glucose, haemoglobin and pulse rate of the subject plays a vital role in medical diagnosis. Commonly used glucose & haemoglobin measurement methods are invasive which generally involves finger puncturing. These methods are painful and frequent pricking cause calluses on the skin and have risk of spreading infectious diseases. Therefore there is need to develop a non-invasive monitoring system which can measure blood glucose continuously without much problem. The present work is focused on development of non-invasive Haemoglobin, blood glucose & pulse rate measurement sensor system using Near-infrared (NIR) technique. The present work focusses on development of non-invasive blood glucose measurement sensor system using Near-Infrared technique. Sensor module is designed using an LED and a photodiode to observe the diffused reflectance spectra of blood from the human finger. This method is tested on few subjects and results are promising and show the potential of using NIR measurement.
