Title: SYSTEM, METHOD AND PROCESSOR FOR MONITORING A VITAL SIGN OF A SUBJECT
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a system (10) for monitoring a vital sign of a first subject (12), for example, a neonate, which is in proximity or in contact with a second subject (14), for example, a parent. The system comprises an imaging unit (16) for monitoring the first subject (12) from a distance, to obtain an imaging signal related to a first vital sign of the first subject (12), this imaging unit (16) might be, for example, a camera. The system further comprises a sensing unit (18) for obtaining a sensor signal related to a second vital sign of the second subject (14). The sensing unit (18) is arranged in proximity or at the second subject (14). The first vital sign is of the same type as the second vital sign, thus an analyzing unit (20) can be used for deriving the first vital sign of the first subject (12) from said imaging signal by taking into account said sensor signal.
