Heartphones is a system for continuous heart rate monitoring comprising sensor earphones and a mobile application
HeartPhones consists of two main components
Resemble commercially popular earphones.
Reflective photosensor is embedded into each earbud on a pair of regular earphones.
The reflective photosensor comprises an infrared LED that’s integrated with a phototransistor in a small resin package.
Comparison of BVP and ECG waveforms
Walking and Cycling
Comfortable and non-obtrusive assessment/surveillance for cardiovascular catastrophes; even stylish and lifestyle wearable product
Social acceptance and widespread adoption outside the lab as it is a natural extension that adds the capability to track personal health
Screening patients for CAD
Tracking chronic medical conditions
Measuring Breathing rates.
Questions and Comments are welcome
Heart Rate Monitoring
Study on 31 participants(18 males & 13 females)
Participants age - between 18-47
Music & Stress
Earphones retain their original function - as audio output device
Heartphones can measure user’s stress levels and help regulate them with music by measuring HRV
Heartphones can also help identify songs that aid in promoting relaxation by monitoring HRV
Monitoring heart rate and stress level with no extra effort
Bilateral Measurements for CA D
Another potential application - continuous monitoring of carotid artery disease(CAD).
Study - obtained simultaneous bilateral PPG recordings from 15 participants 8 males and 7 females) with no history of cardiovascular disease
Assessed similarities in bilateral BVP waveforms by cross correlation between left and right BVP signals
Pearson’s correlation coefficient and the crosscorrelation lag corresponding to maximum correlation.
System Accuracy Exceptions
PPG - influenced by motion-induced signal corruption (more effort-ful activities)
Poorly fitted earbuds and motion of the earphone cables can introduce inaccuracy
Use of Adaptive Noise Cancellation Technique
