Designing a sensor interface for cardiorespiratory measurement in sleep monitoring

  • Sleep is essential to existence, much like air, water, and food, as we spend nearly one-third of our time sleeping. Poor sleep quality or disturbed sleep causes daytime solemnity, which worsens daytime activities' mental and physical qualities and raises the risk of accidents. With advancements in sensor and communication technology, sleep monitoring is moving out of specialized clinics and into our everyday homes. It is possible to extract data from traditional overnight polysomnographic recordings using more basic tools and straightforward techniques. Ballistocardiogram is an unobtrusive, non-invasive, simple, and low-cost technique for measuring cardiorespiratory parameters. In this work, we present a sensor board interface to facilitate the communication between force sensitive resistor sensor and an embedded system to provide a high-performing prototype with an efficient signal-to-noise ratio. We have utilized a multi-physical-layer approach to locate each layer on top of another, yet supporting a low-cost, compact design with easy deployment under the bed frame.
