Ballistocardiogram signal processing: a review

Ibrahim Sadek, Jit Biswas, Bessam Abdulrazak
2019 Health Information Science and Systems  
An alternative approach which may help diagnose OSA and other cardiovascular diseases is the ballistocardiography.  ...  In practice, BCG sensors are placed under bed mattresses for sleep tracking, and hence several factors, e.g., mattress thickness, body movements, motion artifacts, bed-partners, etc. can deteriorate the  ...  Moreover, due to the high intrinsic resistance and bubble structure, the charge perseveres for a long time.  ...

Ballistocardiogram Signal Processing: A Literature Review [article]

Ibrahim Sadek
2018 arXiv   pre-print
This is usually done by taking the fast Fourier transform or the inverse Fourier transform of the logarithm of the estimated spectrum, i.e., cepstrum of the signal using a sliding window.  ...  This is because the BCG signal does not display consistent J-peaks, which can usually be the case for overnight, in-home monitoring, particularly with frail elderly.  ...  Index Terms-Ballistocardiogram, Vita signs, Nonintrusive monitoring, Technology and services for home care.

A Blanket Accommodative Sleep Posture Classification System Using an Infrared Depth Camera: A Deep Learning Approach with Synthetic Augmentation of Blanket Conditions

Andy Yiu-Chau Tam, Bryan Pak-Hei So, Tim Tin-Chun Chan, Alyssa Ka-Yan Cheung, Duo Wai-Chi Wong, James Chung-Wai Cheung
2021 Sensors  
Surveillance of sleeping posture is essential for bed-ridden patients or individuals at-risk of falling out of bed.  ...  The system uses an infrared depth camera for data acquisition and a convolutional neural network to classify sleeping postures.  ...  For example, a prolonged non-symmetrical sleeping posture might lead to structural spinal changes and symptoms [12, 13] .  ...

Accurate Heartbeat Detection on Ballistocardiogram Accelerometric Traces

Niccolo Mora, Federico Cocconcelli, Guido Matrella, Paolo Ciampolini
2020 IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement  
This article presents an automated procedure for acquisition and analysis of BallistoCardioGraphy (BCG) traces.  ...  The quality of J-peaks timing annotation is further demonstrated by a very low discrepancy between BCG and ECG heart rate (HR) estimates.  ...  Riccardo Piazza for his contribution in developing part of the measurement system and for the help in data collection.  ...

Cardiac and Respiratory Parameter Estimation Using Head-mounted Motion-sensitive Sensors

J. Hernandez, Y. Li, J. M. Rehg, R. W. Picard
2015 EAI Endorsed Transactions on Pervasive Health and Technology  
We show it is possible to achieve a mean absolute error of 0.82 beats per minute (STD: 1.98) for heart rate and 0.6 breaths per minute (STD: 1.19) for respiration rate when considering different observation  ...  This material is based upon work supported by Google, the National Science Foundation (NSF 1029585 and NSF 1029679), the MIT Media Lab Consortium, and the Intel Science and Technology Center for Pervasive  ...  These results are promising for nonintrusive physiological assessments. However, the location and types of sensors of this study are different, and can have an impact on the statistics.  ...
