Our group measures tissue oxygenation and the cortical hemodynamic response to sensory stimuli applying continuous wave near-infrared imaging (NIRI). To improve the method’s quality and applicability and to explore new fields in clinical practice and research, we developed a miniaturized wireless NIRI system. It was validated by measuring muscle oxygenation in a blood-flow occlusion experiment and brain activity in adults.
