Thoracocardiogram (TCG) and abdominocardiogram ( ACG) normalised superimposed response curves and their means for four subjects.
Thoracocardiogram (TCG) and abdominocardiogram ( ACG) normalised superimposed response curves and their means for four subjects. The signals, obtained from an optical fibre figure-of-eight macrobending-based sensor, from each subject are shown in each column, with the first row containing the sequence of superimposed TCG signals and the second row displaying the mean of these values. The third and fourth rows show the equivalent series and mean for the ACG signals. The time origin of each window indicates the R wave position of the corresponding ECG signal that is acquired simultaneously.
