In this paper we present a methodology for recognizing three fundamental movements of the human forearm (extension, flexion and rotation) using pattern recognition applied to the data from a single wrist-worn, inertial sensor. We propose that this technique could be used as a clinical tool to assess rehabilitation progress in neurodegenerative pathologies(More)
This paper introduces a low-complexity algorithm for the extraction of the fiducial points from the electrocardiogram (ECG). The application area we consider is that of remote cardiovascular monitoring, where continuous sensing and processing takes place in low-power, computationally constrained devices, thus the power consumption and complexity of the(More)
In this paper we present a carry-save arithmetic (CSA) based Coordinate Rotation Digital Computer (CORDIC) engine for computing eight fundamental time domain statistical features. These features are used commonly in association with major classifiers in remote health monitoring systems with an aim of executing them on a node of Wireless Sensor Network(More)
In this paper we present a method for recognising three fundamental movements of the human arm (reach and retrieve, lift cup to mouth, rotation of the arm) by determining the orientation of a tri-axial accelerometer located near the wrist. Our objective is to detect the occurrence of such movements performed with the impaired arm of a stroke patient during(More)
Purpose. Body worn inertial sensors could be used to assess rehabilitation of patients with impaired upper limb motor control by detecting and classifying how many times particular arm movements (exercises) are made during normal activities. We present a systematic exploration to determine such a system. Methods. Kinematic data was collected from 18 healthy(More)
In this paper we present a methodology as a proof-of-concept for recognizing fundamental movements of the human arm (extension, flexion and rotation of the forearm) involved in 'making-a-cup-of-tea', typical of an activity of daily-living (ADL). The movements are initially performed in a controlled environment as part of a training phase and the data are(More)
In this paper we present a systematic exploration for determining the appropriate type of inertial sensor and the associated data processing techniques for classifying four fundamental movements of the upper limb. Our motivation was to explore classification techniques that are of low computational complexity enabling low power processing on body-worn(More)
This paper reports an algorithm for the detection of three elementary upper limb movements, i.e., reach and retrieve, bend the arm at the elbow and rotation of the arm about the long axis. We employ two MARG sensors, attached at the elbow and wrist, from which the kinematic properties (joint angles, position) of the upper arm and forearm are calculated(More)
In this paper we present a systematic exploration to determine several EEG based features for classifying three emotional states (happy, fearful and neutral) pertaining to face perception. EEG data were acquired through a 19-channel wireless system from eight adults under two conditions - in a constrained position and involving head-body movements. The(More)
—This paper presents a wavelet-based low-complexity Electrocardiogram (ECG) compression algorithm for mobile healthcare systems, in the backdrop of real clinical requirements. The proposed method aims at achieving good trade-off between the compression ratio (CR) and the fidelity of the reconstructed signal, to preserve the clinically diagnostic features.(More)
