Verification and first test measurement of a microwave-based vital sign monitor

Schmiech, Daniel; Marnach, Aly; Diewald, Andreas R.

The authors present a microwave-based vital sign monitoring system to detect the breathing rate of premature infants in a baby incubator. The sensor is a four channel I/Q-radar system with adapted antennas to cover the predefined region of interest on the patient surface of the incubator. In order to prove the correct illumination of the reclining area an electromotive actuator and a pneumatic dummy is used. With a periodic and repeatable breathing simulation the reflected signal in the sensor system is measured and evaluated. In the publication the radar system in the baby incubator, the electromotive actuator and the infant dummy are presented.
