The most important application of ECG sensor focus on wellness of the patient and include heart rate and stresss monitoring, biometric verification and life monitoring.
Some of the applications of this sensor include detection of changes in the attentive, cognitive and emotional states. EDA sensors were also used during Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) procedures as an auxiliary tool to aid the surgeon.
The most comman and usual applications are the measurements of heart rate and heart rate variability, but it can be also used to other studies as evaluation of arterial resistance, elasticity of the aorta or even to obtain blood pressure. Other applications for BVP sensor can be developed since it allows to obtain vital information. For example, some sleep disorder studies have been using BVP sensors to extract some important parameters to detect sleep arousals.
Surface electromyography (sEMG) is a technique which is used in many clinical and biomedical applications, in areas like neurology, rehabilitation, orthopeadics, ergonomics, sports, etc. It is used as a diagnostic or biofeedback tool to identify neuromuscular diseases allowing clinicians to access patients' magnitude and time patterns of muscle activity. Assess muscle fatigue, disorders of motor control and low-back pain is also possible with the EMG sensor.
Sensing isometric muscular activity, where no movement is produced, enables a definition of classes of subtle motionless gestures to control interfaces without being noticed and without disrupting the surrounding enviroment. These signals can be used to control prosthetic devices such as prosthetic hands, arms, and lower limbs or as a control signal for an electronic device such as a mobile phone or PDA. sEMG recordings may also be a suitable control signal for some interactive video games.
Nowadays accelerometers are widely spread from areas so distinguished as engineering, biology, building monitoring, biomechanics, etc. Even cell phones and gaming consoles have them. Vibration measurements, particularly in research applications and studies of bodynamic and biomechanic analysis are the perfect context candidates to use our compact MEMS triaxial accelerometers.
Brain activity involves transfer of information among neurons in the form of electric potentials. Real-time and localized measurements of the electrical activity at the scalp surface can be very useful in several applications, such as epilepsy, detection and classification of human sleep stages, brain computer interfaces, absence seizures, among others.
This sensor enables precise temperature measurements in the skin surface. It can be used for applications involving continuous or intermittent temperature readings in patients. The repeatability and fast response is essential not only to intermittent temperature measurements associated with oral and rectal fever, but also with continuous monitoring which is often necessary during induced hypothermia, general anesthesia, or while employed in the care of newborn and premature babies.
Some of the applications of this sensor include thoracic cavity displacement measurement and respiratory cycle's observation. Diagnosing sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, characterized by pauses in breathing or abnormally low breathing during sleep, is also an application. Also use the respiratory monitoring in athletes to determineventilation levels and study the relation with their performance.
This sensor can be used to detect and measure relative changes in the force applied. It can be used to detect contact or touch and activate a trigger to control a different signal, cellphone or computer applications. When properly calibrated can measure force quantitatively.
The sensor allows real time angle variation analysis in a two dimensional space during the activity of the user. A possible application is for postural evaluation during normal daily activities or work practice. In physical theraphy it can be used to measure the range of motion and assess accurately the progress through time.
