Heart rate variability (HRV) is a valuable noninvasive tool of assessing the state of cardiovascular autonomic function. Over the recent years there has been interest in heart rate monitoring without electrodes. Seismocardiography (SCG) is a non-invasive technique of recording and analyzing cardiovascular vibrations. The purpose of this study is to compare HRV indices calculated on SCG and ECG signals from Combined measurement of ECG, breathing and seismocardiogram (CEBS) database. The authors use 20 signals lasting 200 s acquired from patients in supine position and compare heart rate variability parameters from the seismocardiogram and ECG reference signal. They assessed the performance of heart beat detector on SCG channel. The results of modified version of SCG heart beat detection prove its good performance on signals with higher sampling frequency. Strong linear correlation of HRV indices calculated from ECG and SCG prove the reliability of SCG in HRV analysis performed on signals from CEBS Database.
