Vital Signs Monitoring

Contactless monitoring of vital signs has become an important area of interest in healthcare in recent years. Not only in older age groups, where continuous monitoring of vital signs is of high relevance, but also in early infancy new contactless technologies are becoming more and more present.

At the IMT, research is being conducted on the contactless monitoring of vital signs in newborns in order to make skin-damaging and thus life-threatening sensor technology obsolete in the future. A wide variety of wireless sensors can be used to record respiratory activity, heart rate and many other parameters. With the help of signal-processing algorithms and the use of suitable deep learning methods, the corresponding signals can be output, analyzed and evaluated. These new technological approaches can also be transferred to other areas, such as ambient assisted living or driver monitoring, and thus offer great potential for the future in many applications.
