Abstract

The possibility of remote measurement of vital parameters makes it possible to implement telemedicine systems. However these systems are of particular interest for subjects who, due to age or pathologies, are weak and fragile. For these subjects, the management of devices for measuring vital parameters that must be appropriately positioned in contact with the skin, in fixed positions, is difficult. For this reason, in this paper two technologies are shown for the non-contact measurement of two physiological parameters, heart rate and respiratory rate, based on the acquisition and processing of video signals and radar signals. The techniques presented are based on the use of commercial devices. The use of these technologies simplifies the acquisition of vital parameters compared to traditional technologies. The reliability of the measured values was evaluated by comparing the values obtained with a pulse oximeter and an app on a smartphone.
