Abstract

Heart and respiration rates can be wirelessly measured by extracting the phase shift caused by the periodic displacement of a patient's chest wall. We have developed a phased-array Doppler-based non-contact vital sign (NCVS) sensor capable of long-term vital signs monitoring using an automatic patient tracking and movement detection algorithm. Our NCVS sensor achieves non-contact heart rate monitoring with accuracies of over 90% (i.e, within ±5 Beats-Per-Minute vs. a reference sensor) across a large number of data points collected over various days of the week inside a typical office cubicle setting at a distance of 1.5 meters.
