Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This paper describes an integrated Physiological Sensor Suite (PSS) based upon QUASAR's innovative non-invasive bioelectric sensor technologies that will provide, for the first time, a fully integrated, noninvasive methodology for physiological sensing. The PSS currently under development at QUASAR is a state-of-the-art multimodal array of sensors that, along with an ultra-low power personal area wireless network, form a comprehensive body-worn system for real-time monitoring of subject physiology and cognitive status. Applications of the PSS extend from monitoring of military personnel to long-term monitoring of patients diagnosed with cardiac or neurological conditions. Results for side-by-side comparisons between QUASAR's biosensor technology and conventional wet electrodes are presented. The signal fidelity for bioelectric measurements using QUASAR's biosensors is comparable to that for wet electrodes.
