Contact-less Vital Parameter Determination: An e-Health Solution for Elderly Care

Christian Wiede, Julia Richter, Gangolf Hirtz

Abstract

Vital parameters are key figures for the basis functions of the human body. Without these basis body functions, such as the heart beat, life is impossible. Therefore, vital parameters are indicators for a person’s general medical condition. In recent years, the topic of vital parameter monitoring has been increasingly studied in the field of e-health. Especially the contact-less determination of vital parameters, such as heart rate, respiration rate, oxygen saturation and blood pressure, with consumer cameras brings a variety of advantages. In this work, we present methods to determine the mentioned vital parameters in a contact-less, optical way. Furthermore, we evaluated these methods for an utilisation in home environments with respect to elderly care. As a result, the remote determination of heart and respiration rate show reliable measurements, which makes the proposed methods ready for the application in home environments.
