The paper describes the prototype implementation of a wearable health device (WHD) that could be easily utilized by users for mobile health status monitoring applications, and its preliminary assessment. This WHD is composed of: (i) an undershirt, embedding carbon-black (CB) dry electrodes for the harvesting of the desired biosignals, (ii) a custom-made hardware electronic unit for electrical biosignals conditioning and acquisition, and (iii) a software component which handles the biosignals data acquisition and transmission by means of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) protocol. Preliminary tests have been carried out, and to this aim, the six-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and respiration wave (RW) signals acquired from the developed WHD are reported. Furthermore, an early assessment by using the biosignals generated by a patient-simulator device is presented.

Abstract

The paper describes the prototype implementation of a wearable health device (WHD) that could be easily utilized by users for mobile health status monitoring applications, and its preliminary assessment. This WHD is composed of: (i) an undershirt, embedding carbon-black (CB) dry electrodes for the harvesting of the desired biosignals, (ii) a custom-made hardware electronic unit for electrical biosignals conditioning and acquisition, and (iii) a software component which handles the biosignals data acquisition and transmission by means of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) protocol. Preliminary tests have been carried out, and to this aim, the six-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and respiration wave (RW) signals acquired from the developed WHD are reported. Furthermore, an early assessment by using the biosignals generated by a patient-simulator device is presented.
