Abstract
Patient monitoring of vital signals such as breathing rhythm and heart beat rate can be done remotely by the use of a radar system. This approach is advantageous since it does not require any contact with the patient. Obviously contactless monitoring results in a more comfortable situation for the patient, and in occasions it is almost mandatory as in the case of heavy burnt or newborn patients. Moreover, additional information such movement patterns are also available. A 120 GHz FMCW radar is d...
