European IcyHeart project to focus on real-time ECG monitory for ambulatory use
February 23, 2012 // Julien Happich
Initiated by the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM), the European IcyHeart project targets the development of an unobtrusive, wireless, battery-powered ECG monitoring-solution for ambulatory use, with the ability to analyze the ECG waveform and detect abnormal events in real time.
The objective of IcyHeart is to investigate and demonstrate a highly integrated and power-efficient microelectronic solution for remote monitoring of a person's electrocardiogram (ECG) signals. A complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) will be developed including an ultra-low-power signal acquisition front-end with analogue-to-digital converter for electrocardiograms, a low-power digital signal processor, and a low-energy RF transceiver. Energy efficient signal processing algorithms targeting ECGs and similar signals will be embedded and run on the on-chip DSP.
The proposed research will enable major technological breakthroughs in the areas of highly integrated “sensing-converting-processing-transmitting” solutions in a single chip. IcyHeart technology will generate high market-value for European SMEs developing novel cardio-monitoring products for home and professional environments, and create high societal impact for several categories of European citizens who require miniature, comfortable, and easy-to-use wireless tele-healthcare solutions.
