Abstract

Non-contact methods of determining the human body’s heart rate are of interest for clinical use. This research used a video magnification technique on the individual frames from a 15-second video taken using a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera at 30 frames per second. It was possible to determine the heart rate beats per minute by extracting the green spectrum from a region of interest information from the video frames. In this paper, three methods are presented using this colour change between the frames transform as a signal to find the heart rate. While capturing the video’s using the camera, a commercially available pulse oximeter was used to obtain the pulse rate from the participant’s finger to validate the values calculated from the image processing techniques presented. The results show that it is possible to get a heart rate in terms of pulse rate reading using a camera and the developed MATLAB code.
