Ballistocardiography - Accelerometer Aided Cardiography


Project Description

On this project high-sensitive 3D-accelerometers will measure the pulse generated by the heartbeat. Thus, the pumping or ejection forces (ballistic force, Greek “ballein” = "throw") of systolic and diastolic heart activities can be calculated and a conclusion about cardiac functions can be drawn. With such a system patients can be supported in everyday life after a long confinement to bed or with a myocardial failure. Within the mobilization process medical professionals can monitor heart function parameters while the patients are in their own homes.

Duration: since 2014
