Photoplethysmography (PPG) devices are widely used for monitoring cardiovascular function. However, these devices require skin contact, which restricts their use to at-rest short-term monitoring. Photoplethysmographic imaging (PPGI) has been recently proposed as a non-contact monitoring alternative by measuring blood pulse signals across a spatial region of(More)
Cardiovascular monitoring is important to prevent diseases from progressing. The jugular venous pulse (JVP) waveform offers important clinical information about cardiac health, but is not routinely examined due to its invasive catheterisation procedure. Here, we demonstrate for the first time that the JVP can be consistently observed in a non-contact manner(More)
Photoplethysmography (PPG) devices are widely used for monitoring cardiovascular function. However, these devices require skin contact, which restrict their use to at-rest short-term monitoring using single-point measurements. Photoplethysmographic imaging (PPGI) has been recently proposed as a non-contact monitoring alternative by measuring blood pulse(More)
Dysphagia affects 590 million people worldwide and increases risk for malnutrition. Puréed food may reduce choking, however preparation differences impact nutrient density making quality assurance necessary. This paper is the first study to investigate the feasibility of computational puréed food nutritional density analysis using an imaging system.(More)
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally. Cardiovascular monitoring is important to prevent diseases from progressing. The jugular venous pressure waveform (JVP) is able to provide important information about cardiac health. Factors such as mechanical deformations, electric abnormalities, and irregular external forces change the(More)
