Student project: Additional Biomarkers from the SPG signal

Research & development - Eindhoven | More than two weeks ago

Speckle contrast has been widely used for calculating Speckle Plethysmography (SPG) from speckle images. From the same image, both SPG and PPG can be obtained. However, more research is needed to assess the additional biomarkers extractable from the SPG signal alone or from both PPG and SPG and their accuracies.
