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.
