Abstract

In recent years, the attention to the health and comfort of the individual, together with the electronic miniaturization progress, have led to an increased interest in the development of biomedical devices that are able to acquire a multitude of biomedical signals. Such devices should be wearable and comfortable during daily use, to be thus suitable for continuously monitoring psychophysical health states. In this context, we have designed and realized a portable biomedical device capable of real-time acquisition of electrocardiographic (ECG), photoplethysmographic (PPG), breathing and galvanic skin response (GSR) signals, for a noninvasive monitoring of multiple physiological parameters. This work shows the architecture of our system, which integrates a Bluetooth module for wireless communication with the central computer and novel analog sensors capable of carrying out breathing and GSR measurements. Preliminary measurements carried out using our system during a controlled breathing protocol illustrated how the simultaneous measurement of ECG, PPG, GSR and respiration allows tracking changes not only in heart rate, but also in epidermal tissue sweating, thus confirming that the device can be successfully employed for monitoring health status and, in perspective, also for assessing the individual’s stress level.
