The ongoing trend of ECG monitoring techniques to become more ambulatory and less obtrusive generally comes at the expense of decreased signal quality. To enhance this quality, consecutive ECG complexes can be averaged triggered on the heartbeat, exploiting the quasi-periodicity of the ECG. However, this averaging constitutes a tradeoff between improvement… (More)
Over the last decade the level of interest in the field of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) has grown enormously to support various collaborative activities. Basically they all support argumentation in one or the other way. While many environments do support the process of bringing people into collaboration, the participants often fail to… (More)
