Abstract

The device for quantitative seismocardiography (Q-SCG) detects cardiac vibrations caused by the heart activity, the measuring sensor is usually placed in the plate of the chair – additional instruments applied on the proband’s body are not required. The results of the Q-SCG analysis are usable in various clinical fields. The first and most important step in the process of detection of significant characteristics of measured Q-SCG curves is to detect pseudo-periods in the signal regardless of the initial pseudo-period position. Other characteristics can be acquired by a relatively simple process over the appointed pseudo-period. The experimental equipment for the Q-SCG measuring and analysis was developed and also special algorithms for preprocessing, segmentation and interactive analysis of the Q-SCG signal were developed. In this contribution technical principles of the quantitative seismocardiography are introduced; the method is easy, robust and is appropriate for real-time Q-SCG processing.
