ECG synthesis from separate wearable bipolar electrodes

Abstract

Compared to cabled ECG devices, the use of wearable patches to reconstruct ECG offers a more comfortable alternative for continuous monitoring, especially for patients at home. In this work, we investigate the feasibility of synthesizing a 3-lead ECG signal from 3 separate wearable and wireless patches. We also investigate the effect of their orientation on the synthesized signal. We conduct an experiment on healthy subjects and show the ability of this method to provide a similar ECG signal to the reference, in terms of matching the overall signal pattern. However, a more detailed study would be needed in order to investigate the ability of this method to identify critical conditions for vulnerable subjects.
