Paper Title:
A Contact-Free Monitor of Human’S Vital Signs
  Abstract

Heart rates and breathing rates are widely used to assess the health state of human in clinic. Tranditional method uses eletrodes or sensors touching the body to measure electrocardiography (ECG) and respiratory signals.A vital signs monitor via a micorwave sensor was disscused to contact-free measurement of the heart rate and breathing rate. Comparison of vital signs derived from the microwave sensor and tranditional contact monitor demonstrated that there were no significant differences between each other, which suggested the contact-free vital signs monitor may prove a practical alternative method to measure heart rate and breathing rate.
