Abstract [en]

In ECG signals recorded with smart clothes disturbances as intermittent loss of signal from electrodes, movement artefacts, and electromyographic interference are common. In this study a multichannel method for spatio-temporal filtering is evaluated using ECG signals from a database and with three recordings made with a T-shirt with integrated textile electrodes. The sensitivity and precision of the signals from the database were 99.6% and 98.5%, respectively, if 12 channels were used and the signal-to-noise ratio was -10 dB. The filter gave a sensitivity of 99.6% and a precision of 99.5% in the recordings from the textile electrodes. In conclusion, the results obtained indicated that multichannel spatio-temporal filtration could be a suitable method for heartbeat detection in ECG measurements with textile electrodes.
