  • Publication number: 20190298212
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and device for determining a robust synthetic signal indicative of a bioelectrical activity of an individual. Two measurement signals representative of physiological electrical signals of an individual are continuously acquired by electrodes. Two time series of confidence indices associated with the measurement signals are constructed. A synthetic signal is determined from the measurement signals and from the time series of confidence indices.
