Noncontact measurement of breathing function

  title={Noncontact measurement of breathing function},
  author={Rajashekara S. Murthy and Ioannis Pavlidis},
  journal={IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine},
This paper aims to open a new line of research by demonstrating the feasibility of monitoring breathing function in a highly automated and noncontact fashion. The method is based on the statistical modeling of dynamic thermal data captured through a highly sensitive infrared imaging system. This method achieved an accuracy of 96.43% on a small set of subjects during rest and after brief exercise. It has the potential to provide a unique capability for sustained monitoring of chronic or acute… CONTINUE READING
