Heart rate algorithm

Heart rate data cleaning algorithm for wearables

My PhD advisor and I developed and evaluated a novel algorithm for cleaning heart rate data captured by wearable devices.

Our algorithm improves data quality (concordance correlation coefficient) by 14.4% outperforming Microsoft's solution. One unique feature of the algorithm is its ability to remove motion artifacts without accessing any motion data.

Technologies used:

  • R
  • Tableau

Information about the algorithm was presented at the following conferences:

  • The 39th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC’17)
  • American Medical Informatics Association Annual Symposium 2017
