Abstract

Blood pressure monitoring have been shown to improve management of chronic health conditions. However, devices used for automated monitoring of blood pressure at home provide reliable measurements only at rest and cannot be used during exercise for continuous blood pressure monitoring. Image-based analysis of skin color changes has been introduced to capture pulse transit time which correlates with blood pressure. In this project we assess feasibility of using infrared imaging to support continuous contactless blood pressure monitoring at rest and during exercise. In order to utilize image-based photoplethysmogram (iPPG) and image-based pulse transit time (iPTT) without blinding effect of high intensity visible light source, a light source outside visible spectrum had to be employed. Thus, we introduced a high-speed camera to measure iPPG and iPTT with the infrared light source. The feasibility of this approach that was unclear at the beginning of the study was fully supported by our initial analysis.
