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 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)
—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)
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 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)
