Wearable system for measurement of thoracic sounds with a microphone array

Abstract

Acoustic signals from the thorax provide diagnostic information about the heart, the respiratory and the digestive system. This information is useful for both the detection of acute illness, e.g. in elderly care, and for the monitoring of chronic diseases. Here, a wearable system for long-term capture of thoracic sounds is proposed that comprises four… (More)
