Multiple wearable devices for cardiovascular self-monitoring have been proposed over the years, with increasingly growing evidence showing their effectiveness in the detection of pathologies that would otherwise be unnoticed through standard routine exams. However, wearables have known limitations, chief among which are the need for a voluntary action so that the measurements can be taken, battery lifetime, and abandonment. To effectively address these, novel solutions are needed, which has recently paved the way for “invisible” (aka “off-the-person”) sensing approaches. This project seeks to develop a proof-of-concept system for biomedical data acquisition as an extension of the regular use of sanitary facilities, without requiring body-worn devices.
