  • Publication number: 20160343133
    Abstract: An apparatus of motion amplification to communicate biological vital signs includes a first frequency filter that applies a frequency filter to at least two images, a regional facial clusterial module that is coupled to the first frequency filter and that applies spatial clustering to output of the first frequency filter, a second frequency filter that is coupled to the regional facial clusterial module and that is applied to output of the regional facial clusterial module, thus generating a temporal variation, a vital-sign generator that is coupled to the second frequency filter that generates at least one vital sign from the temporal variation, and a display device that is coupled to the vital-sign generator that displays the at least one vital sign.

  • Patent number: 9501824
    Abstract: A microprocessor is operably coupled to a camera from which patient vital signs of reduced images of skin are determined. A temporal variation of reduced images of skin from the camera is generated from multiple filters and then amplified from which the patient vital sign, such as heart rate or respiratory rate, can be determined and then displayed or stored.

  • Patent number: 9495744
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a cropper operable to receive images and crop the images to exclude a border area, thus generating cropped images, a skin-pixel-identifier coupled to the cropper and that identifies pixel values that are representative of the skin in the cropped images, a first frequency filter coupled to the skin-pixel-identifier and that applies a frequency filter to output of the skin-pixel-identifier, a regional facial clusterial module coupled to the first filter and that applies spatial clustering to the output of the first filter, a second frequency filter operably coupled to the regional facial clusterial module and applied to the output of the regional facial clusterial module, a temporal-variation identifier coupled to the first filter and that identifies temporal variation of the output of the first filter, and a vital-sign generator coupled to the temporal-variation identifier that generates at least one vital sign from the temporal variation.
