Comparison between a textile-based electrocardiogram monitor and a commercial Holter monitor based on short term heart rate variability analysis

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


There is increasing evidence that supports the influence of the autonomous nervous system on the onset of cardiac arrhythmia. Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis has become an essential experimental tool that provides quantitative evidence. This study compares the performance of a home-based novel textile-based electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor with a traditional Holter monitor based on short term HRV analysis. Our results demonstrate that the performance of the proposed textile-based ECG monitor is comparable to the reference Holter monitor, presenting another ambulatory option for cardiac monitoring that require HRV analysis. Further work includes confirming the pilot observations through a larger clinical trial on a clinical population.
