Title
(EN) Wearable respiration measurements system
Abstract
(EN)

A wearable system configured to collect thermal measurements related to respiration. The system includes a frame configured to be worn on a user's head, and at least one non-contact thermal camera (e.g., thermopile or microbolometer based sensor). The thermal camera is small and lightweight, physically coupled to the frame, located close to the user's face, does not occlude any of the user's mouth and nostrils, and is configured to take thermal measurements of: a portion of the right side of the user's upper lip, a portion of the left side of the user's upper lip, and a portion of the user's mouth. The thermal measurements are forwarded to a computer that calculates breathing related parameters, such as breathing rate, an extent to which the breathing was done through the mouth, an extent to which the breathing was done through the nostrils, and ratio between exhaling and inhaling durations.
