About photoplethysmography (PPG):

The non-invasive reflection photoplethysmography (PPG) method uses the back-scattered optical signals for temporal analysis of the skin blood volume pulsations. The periodical increase of blood volume in micro-vessels due to their dilatation (expansion) during the systolic raise of pressure with the following diastolic contraction (relaxation) over each heartbeat causes corresponding changes in absorption of optical signals traveling within the working volume. Consequently, the  time-dependent parts of the properly filtered PPG signals adequately reflect the skin blood volume pulsations during microcirculation.

Heart by pushing blood through the blood vessels is changing light absorption properties of tissue. These changes can be detected by light sensor. Usually as a light source is used IR-diode and as a sensor - photodiode, but Mobile PPG uses surrounding light and phone camera instead.


 1) Put your forefinger (or any other finger) to the phone camera:

 2) Direct camera to the source of light (the Sun, lamp or even PC monitor).


3) If the quality of PPG signal will be good enough, then approximate pulse rate in BPM (Beats Per Minute) will be calculated and showed on the top right corner of the screen.
