Samenvatting

A device for determining the concentration of a substance in the blood of a subject, such as the oxygen saturation, which device reduces or removes the influence of specular reflection and/or subject motion, comprises an input unit for receiving detection signals reflected back or transmitted through a skin area of the subject in response to irradiation of the skin area by a radiation signal, a signal extraction unit for extracting at least three photo-plethysmography, PPG, signals at different wavelengths from said detection signals, a processing unit for normalizing said at least three PPG signals and forming a first difference signal between a first normalized PPG signal and a second normalized PPG signal and a second difference signal between a third normalized PPG signal and one other of the at least three normalized PPG signals and for forming a ratio between said first difference signal and said second difference signal, and an concentration detection unit for calculating the concentration of a substance in the blood of the subject based on said ratio.
