Title: Accelerometer-based fetal movement detection
Author: Mesbah, M; Khlif, M.S.; East, C; Smeathers, J; Colditz, P; Boashash, B
Abstract: Monitoring fetal wellbeing is a compelling problem in modern obstetrics. Clinicians have become increasingly aware of the link between fetal activity (movement), well-being, and later developmental outcome. We have recently developed an ambulatory accelerometer-based fetal activity monitor (AFAM) to record 24-hour fetal movement. Using this system, we aim at developing signal processing methods to automatically detect and quantitatively characterize fetal movements. The first step in this direction is to test the performance of the accelerometer in detecting fetal movement against real-time ultrasound imaging (taken as the gold standard). This paper reports first results of this performance analysis.
Description: This paper presents the results of an accelerometer-based fetal movement detector . (Additional details can be found in the comprehensive book on Time-Frequency Signal Analysis and Processing (see http://www.elsevier.com/locate/isbn/0080443354). In addition, the most recent upgrade of the original software package that calculates Time-Frequency Distributions and Instantaneous Frequency estimators can be downloaded from the web site: www.time-frequency.net. This was the first software developed in the field, and it was first released publicly in 1987 at the 1st ISSPA conference held in Brisbane, Australia, and then continuously updated).
