Abstract

Generic system for the acquisition, archiving and analysis of physiological data C.J. Hall" & A.S. Holder^ "Department of Applied Computing and Electronics, Bournemouth University, Bournemouth, UK ^Research Monitoring Systems, Wilton, Salisbury, UK ABSTRACT This paper describes a generic data acquisition, data archiving and analysis system designed for use in physiological monitoring research projects. Cost is minimised by exploiting the functionality and price- performance of current micro-computer workstations. The system provides researchers with data analysis/visualisation functions driven through a standard Graphical User Interface (GUI). The system uses Apple™ computers - the low-cost, high function PowerBook (lap top) as a bed side monitoring station and the high-end Quadra with large screen for the subsequent manipulation and study of the data. Specialist hardware has been minimised and reduced to signal conditioning, analogue to digital c
