The paper deals with the robust and reliable evaluation of the Pulse Rate (PR) with a smartphone. The smartphone camera is used to evaluate the volumetric variation of blood by monitoring the change of light absorption in the tissue. Once assessed the correct working operation, the PhotoPlethysmoGram (PPG) signal is detected and the PR is evaluated on the basis of adaptive and statistical analysis. To validate the pointed out method, the PR, evaluated by smartphone, is compared with the Ambulatory Blood Pressure monitor Spacelabs 90207, that is clinically validated medical device. The experimental results confirm the correctness and suitability of the proposed method.

Abstract

The paper deals with the robust and reliable evaluation of the Pulse Rate (PR) with a smartphone. The smartphone camera is used to evaluate the volumetric variation of blood by monitoring the change of light absorption in the tissue. Once assessed the correct working operation, the PhotoPlethysmoGram (PPG) signal is detected and the PR is evaluated on the basis of adaptive and statistical analysis. To validate the pointed out method, the PR, evaluated by smartphone, is compared with the Ambulatory Blood Pressure monitor Spacelabs 90207, that is clinically validated medical device. The experimental results confirm the correctness and suitability of the proposed method.
