Non-contact vital signs monitoring
The non-contact vital signs monitoring (NVSM) study was a joint collaboration between the Department of Engineering, the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, and Oxehealth Ltd.
The non-contact vital signs monitoring study (NVSM) was sponsored by the University of Oxford and funded by Innovate UK. Working closely with Oxehealth Ltd, the research group ran a feasibility study to test the practicalities of using new monitoring equipment in the intensive care unit.
Using visual signals based on standard video camera technology the Oxehealth Ltd software is already able to extract heart rate and breathing rate. New algorithm development will focus on recognising blood pressure, temperature, and level of oxygen in the blood.
