Abstract

The purpose of this work is to study the effect of long term alterations of ballistocardiography during 12 years time recorded in sitting position by using EMFi (Electromechanical Film) sensors. ECG, BCG, ankle pulse signal and carotid pulse (CP) signal from the neck near the carotid artery were recorded from a single person and duration of the signal components according to R spike of the ECG and amplitudes of the signals were studied. The time domain properties of BCG, CP and ankle pulse signals at different times (time interval around 1 year during 12 years time) remained rather stable within the same person. The BCG signal stability endured during 12 years time showing that no major changes happened in the condition of the heart-vasculature system.
