Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Motion artifact noise in ECG processing is difficult to remove since its spectrum is known to overlap the ECG signal spectrum. The combination of wavelet based denoising and high-pass/low-pass filtering is presented and shown to provide good motion artifact noise removal capabilities. The relative performance of the new technique is demonstrated using ECGs from the MIT-BIH ECG database.
