This study proposes a system for constant monitoring of ECG and respiration signals using a wearable. The proposed system uses capacitively-coupled electrodes for the measuring of the ECG-signal and a resistive strain sensor for the measuring of the respiration signal. The system applies the strain sensor to the abdomen of a patient, and...

A random periodic two-dimensional spring network us built using a Poisson disk distribution and computing the Delaunay triangulation of the centers of the disks. The edges of the network represent springs that obey Hooke’s law with an adjustment on the spring constant. The adjustment allows spring to soften and to break. The two-dimensional...
