Abstract:In this paper we introduce a wearable device combining physiological monitoring and person’s position assessment. An accelerometer is used as a multi-functional sensor for a position and heart mechanical performance measurements, known as mechanocardiography (MCG). Electrocardiogram (ECG) performs electrical heart analysis. Body positions, such as standing/sitting, lying in the directions of left, supine, right, and prone, are detected. Detecting body position in synchronization with heart activity allows more in-depth monitoring of patient’s health conditions and personal wellbeing. We introduce micro-integrated polymer-based sensor as a wireless device for monitoring applications.
