Abstract The effectiveness of electrocardiogram (ECG) monitors can be significantly impaired by motion artifacts, which can trigger false alarms, cause misdiagnoses, and lead to inappropriate treatment decisions. Skin stretch associated with patient motion is the most significant source of motion artifacts in current ECG monitoring. In this study, motion artifacts are adaptively filtered by using skin strain as the reference variable, measured noninvasively using an optical sensor incorporated into an ECG electrode. The results demonstrate that this new device and method can significantly reduce motion induced ECG artifacts in continuous ambulatory ECG monitoring.
