AbstractA sensor for the noninvasive measurement of the pulse rate and/or oxygen saturation of the blood of a person has a housing holding a transmitter and a receiver. The housing has thin, light-permeable layers in the areas of the light source surface of the transmitter and the light detecting surface of the receiver. Both the transmitter and the receiver are mounted on a flexible conductor plate. The housing is formed of a tight sheathing covering the transmitter, the receiver and the conductor plate supporting the transmitter and receiver.
