Recently, there are many reports on the measurement of mental health conditions as derived from physiological parameters – see references in [1]. Usually, heart-rate or heart rate variability (HRV) has been used for monitoring mental health because of its strong dependency on the autonomic nervous system (ANS) [1-2]. Reference [1] reported that ECG,(More)
—A low power highly sensitive Thoracic Impedance Variance (TIV) and Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring SoC is designed and implemented into a poultice-like plaster sensor for wearable cardiac monitoring. 0.1 TIV detection is possible with a sensitivity of 3.17 V and SNR 40 dB. This is achieved with the help of a high quality (Q-factor 30) balanced(More)
A wearable neuro-feedback system is proposed with a low-power neuro-feedback SoC (NFS), which supports mental status monitoring with encephalography (EEG) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) for neuro-modulation. Self-configured independent component analysis (ICA) is implemented to accelerate source separation at low power. Moreover, an embedded(More)
A 2.5 times 1.8 cm<sup>2</sup> medical implant communication service band antenna is combined with an electrode for body channel communication. The proposed design enables a body sensor network controller to communicate with health-care devices located on and inside a patient's body. The spiral microstrip antenna with its radiating body and ground plane(More)
