Telemonitoring is a tool with proven results demonstrating clinical benefits in reducing mortality and hospi-talizations. In this context, heart rate and rhythm are vital signs of utmost importance for monitoring a patient's condition. Recent advances in mobile technologies have allowed smartphones to be of great usage in this scenario, given its processing power, connectivity capabilities, sensor hardware and camera quality. This paper describes the usage of a smartphone camera to detect the… CONTINUE READING
