This project aims to further develop, test and validate the prototype “interactive” PC-based contactless monitoring system, VitalSeer Software Suite, developed by the National Research Council of Canada to support seniors with aging in place.
We aim to examine and validate the accuracy of the contactless sensing system in measuring heart rate (HR) and oxygen saturation (SpO2). As technology advances, the contactless sensing system may include additional physiological parameters like respiratory rate, which will also be incorporated into our testing.
For the current phase, we will recruit participants to participate in test sessions at our research lab and out in Metro Vancouver at community centers. During a test session, select physiological parameters will be taken by the contactless sensing system via video recorded of the face, neck and/or hands of the participant along with the same measurements from medical grade contact-type devices. These parameters include heart rate and SpO2, and respiratory rate when the technology is ready. It is expected that a test session will take up to 60 minutes and that the participant will be seated in a chair.
