Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Analysis of physiological signals of different origin, like blood pressure, heart rate, or electroenkephalography, has so far been incoherent because of the different measuring systems, data formats and analysis software. The systems are usually closed so that data produced with one system cannot be transferred to and analysed with another. New highly specialised software and equipment for analysis have also soon become obsolete. There is a growing need for more general-purpose signal analysis system which would not be tied to specific computer or measurement systems. This kind of system for scientific research is now under development in co-operation with Tampere and Kuopio University Hospitals, VTT Information Technology and Laboratory of Measurement Technology in TUT.
