Smart Weighing Scale with Feet-Sampled ECG


In a smart home, health and well-being monitoring systems could be embedded in everyday devices providing a pervasive care. A home bathroom scale is an example of such a device, typically used to measure body weight and very often its composition (e.g. body water/fat percentage). In this paper, we analyzed a potential use of the bathroom scale to measure electrocardiogram (ECG) from electrodes located on the scale's tile. In particular we used both, simulations and real measurements to analyze the possibility of a such approach. We originally created a simple finite element model to analyze a role of a vector cardiogram projected on the foot-foot lead. We also analyzed results obtained during experiments in which took part (in total) 13 healthy volunteers. They were examined both, in sitting and standing positions. As a result we showed that the quality of the recorded ECG signal from feet is highly related to the electrical vector orientation of the individual's heart. We additionally compared the detected QRS complexes from hands-and feet-sampled ECG for sitting and standing positions. Results showed that for the sitting position the difference was only for 3.6% of all QRS complexes, while for standing one about 24.9%.
