Title: A METHOD FOR ASSESSING THE RELIABILITY OF A FETAL AND MATERNAL HEART RATE MEASUREMENT AND A MOBILE DEVICE AND SYSTEM FOR IMPLEMENTING THE SAME
Abstract:
There is provided a method for assessing the reliability of a measurement of a fetal heart rate and a maternal heart rate. A heart rate signal that is indicative of a fetal heart rate is received. A maternal heart rate is detected using a detector of a mobile device. An acceleration signal that is indicative of a maternal movement is received. It is determined if the received fetal heart rate and the detected maternal heart rate are reliable based on the received acceleration signal. A corresponding mobile device and system that implements the method is also provided.
