Bioimpedance measurements on the human thorax are suitable for assessment of body composition or hemodynamic parameters, such as stroke volume; they are non-invasive, easy in application and inexpensive. When targeting personal healthcare scenarios, the technology can be integrated into textiles to increase ease, comfort and coverage of measurements.(More)
Pulse detection via palpation is a basic and essential procedure in daily medical practice. We have been investigating the performance of a single accelerometer placed above the carotid artery, which is one of the recommended locations for manual palpation. A low-cost sensor attached by an adhesive measures accelerations due to carotid dilatations and whole(More)
