A requirement of unobtrusive monitoring of Vital signals in the Neonatal intensive care unit and the possibility to do it based on research motivated us to take this up to develop a Remote Health monitoring system - SafeBeat
What it does
The core of our implementation is Unobtrusive Vital sign monitoring. The heart rate is monitored through the video of the person taken through Laptop camera. This is based on the Research paper in Video health monitoring (Robust pulse-rate from chrominance-based rPPG, 2013). We further developed the end-end system on Remote health monitoring by notifying the doctor about anomalies in the patients heart rate.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into problems with signal processing from the image, integrating different modules in different languages in creating an MVP.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We could get the pulse rate from the video based on the paper.
What we learned
What's next for SafeBeat
Currently, the product only measures Heart rate and it must be tested exhaustively for accuracy. Other vital signals like Blood pressure and Respiration rate should also be included in the system.
