Remote Vital Signs Monitor for Infection Control or Fall Prevention
Recent miniaturisation developments in electronic systems have resulted in a wearable technology boom. This in turn has led to an increase in both vital sign monitoring and research into non-invasive and continuous monitoring methods. Various studies have shown the feasibility of using seismocardiogram (SCG) in heart rate variation (HRV) analysis and diagnostic purposes. This study aims to build upon the research done on SCG through development of a novel, real time Android based system which can calculate the heart rate and the respiratory rate of patients.
