Abstract [en]

Eight ECG beat detection algorithms, from the PhysioNet's WFDR and Cardiovascular Signal toolboxes, were tested on twenty measurements, obtained by the Savvy patch ECG device, for their accuracy in beat detection. On each subject, one measurement is obtained while sitting and one while running. Each measurement lasted from thirty seconds to one minute. The measurements obtained while running were more challenging for all the algorithms, as most of them almost perfectly detected all the beats on the measurements obtained in sitting position. However, when applied on the measurements obtained while running, all the algorithms have performed with decreased accuracy. Considering overall percentage of the faulty detected peaks, the four best algorithms were jqrs, from the Cardiovascular Signal Toolbox, and ecgpuwave, gqrs, and wqrs, from the WEDB Toolbox, with percentages of faulty detected beats 1.7, 2.3, 2.9, and 3, respectively.

Abstract [en]

We present modified antenna-like devices - applicators - for direct detection of internal inhomogeneities such as breast tumours and brain haemorrhages, at a frequency about 1 GHz. This direct detection provides the possibility of using a simple microwave generator and simple rectification and position registration of the received signals. Direct readouts are thus possible, without any massive computing resources as with tomographic imaging. The transmitting applicator is non-contacting and in free air close to the object. It generates an essentially quasistatic axial magnetic field which induces a circular electric field in the tissue. The receiving 3D contacting applicator contains a high-permittivity ceramic and is resonant. Its mode field provides the desired polarisation sensitivity and filters out the main electric field. The overall system sensitivity for detection of internal inhomogeneities is accomplished by optimised use of the orthogonality of the primary magnetic, induced electric, and diffracted electric fields. When developments are completed, the system will replace or complement existing commercial technologies at a low cost.

Abstract [en]

The most accurate dielectric measurements are made by resonant cavity methods, the circular TM010 type being the simplest and most common. However, an airfilled such cavity at 1 GHz needs to be 250 mm in diameter. There is another problem as well: its limited applicability with very lossy samples, due to a too low Q value. This paper describes the development and properties of a metalized zirconia ceramic cavity for use at about 1 GHz. With its permittivity ε′ = 30 its diameter becomes 40 mm instead of 150 mm for the airfilled version. Additionally and importantly, the dynamic range of the loss factor ε″ is greatly expanded. The calibration procedure using numerical retromodelling is described and a measurement example of a ternary alcohol mixture is carried out. The accuracy is also estimated.

Abstract [en]

The tendency of arch-trapped microwave propagation at curved surfaces is a kind of diffraction which needs more attention in the development of measurement systems, from the oil industry to the investigations using antenna applicator systems for biological objects. We develop equations for propagation in very lossy substances in metal pipes. Similar such propagation occurs at the periphery of rounded objects in air, where also surface wave effects occur and can cause measurement problems. We show a modified contacting antenna applicator minimizing arch-trapped as well as surface waves.

Abstract [en]

Remote health monitoring (RHM) through the use of wearable wireless sensors, has drawn a lot of attention from academia and industry in the last decade [1,2]. The aging population, increasing cost of health-care, and lack of human resources in healthcare, are the three key motivators for the development of RHM [3,4]. The RHM systems should reduce health care costs and improve care quality. How to ensure a reliable and secure data collection from sensor devices to stake holders in RHM systems, is an open research question. The most established data storage technology that can ensure the security and privacy of data is the relational database management systems (RDBMSs). Besides security, RDBMSs provide a number of additional convenient features like querying the data, indexing, backups, replication, but are however in general slower than storing the data directly in a file system. Presented is a RHM system with a RDBMS in its core. The system was developed for the needs of ESS-H research profile [5] at Mälardalen University, Sweden. We also present a comprehensive system design which covers all the needs for the RHM application. The system is composed of four main components: (I) Shimmer sensors [6], (II) data acquisition layer (LabVIEW or C#.NET program), (III) RDBMS, and (IV) web service and web interface. The system communicates with the Shimmer sensors over Bluetooth and collects measurements in a relational database, either through a C#.NET or a LabVIEW program. The web service and a web interface are both written in PHP and are running on the Apache HTTP Server. The end-user is able to observe either real-time data (i.e. with insignificant delay) or processed historical data on any web browser. The advantage of using the web interface instead of a desktop application is that it makes the presentation layer easily accessible and platform independent. The RDBMSs provide data security and privacy in addition to other convenient features. Therefore, it is beneficial to incorporate RDBMSs in RHM systems. However, the RDBMSs provide no solution for security and privacy issues in wireless communication which is another research problem.
