An integrated compact heart rate monitoring system that is suitable for long-term health monitoring
This invention relates to electrocardiogram monitoring with non-contacting electrodes that may work through a subject’s clothing. Non-contact biosensors for cardiac monitoring are of great interest for a number of long term health sensing applications ranging from exercise and fitness monitoring to management of chronic health conditions.
The invention enables non-invasive sensing of cardiac signal, which is much less sensitive to changes in electrode to subject distance. The non-contact biosensors make the system convenient and comfortable for long-term use, and can lead to more accurate correction method compared to traditional adhesive sensors and system. It removes artifact signals from subject motion and activity, which is a huge limiting factor in existing system. Lower noise will be caused.
