The Respiration Rate is the number of breaths a person takes per minute (BRPM). The CardioMood bracelet utilizes a proprietary time-frequency algorithm to extract the respiratory-induced intensity, amplitude and frequency variation signals from the photoplethysmography (PPG) signal.
The accelerometer (ACC) is utilized to compensate for movement artifacts. PPG and ACC are measured at 32Hz and data is processed by the algorithm to give a new reading of Respiration Rate every 28 seconds utilizing averaging to smooth pulse rate data and prevent inappropriate and transient artifacts from affecting stability of results.
The accuracy of CardioMood bracelet Respiration Rate measurement was determined by Complementair Medisch Centrum (CMC) Europe, Belgium in accordance with ISO 80601-2-55.
