Abstract

Heart rate variability analysis (HRVA) gives valuable insight to the cardiovascular system. Electrocardiogram (ECG) based HRVA has been assessment gold standard but eavesdropping of wearable technology requires the comparison of its surrogacy to an accepted standard. In this study, optical and mechanical measures at distal artery waveform are compared to the electrical signal of the heart. The sensor data of the six healthy volunteers are collated and compared at fiducial points in various time, frequency and non-linear domains for HRVA. We have found that during early systole fiducial location on waveforms can be surrogate to ECG standard and mechanical sensor 2nd derivative proved to be the best among them. Also, the comparative technology shows enormous potential for cardiovascular diagnostic.
