Conference/Workshop Paper


12th International Conference on Wearable Micro and Nano Technologies for Personalized Health


Presented is a wireless body sensor capable of measuring local potential differences on a body surface. By using on-sensor signal processing capabilities, and developed algorithms for off-line signal processing on a personal computing device, it is possible to record single channel ECG, heart rate, breathing rate, EMG, and when three sensors are applied, even the 12-lead ECG. The sensor is portable, unobtrusive, and suitable for both inpatient and outpatient monitoring. The paper presents the sensor’s hardware and results of power consumption analysis. The sensor’s capabilities of recording various physiological parameters are also presented and illustrated. The paper concludes with envisioned sensor’s future developments and prospects.
