Ballistocardiography (BCG) has gained more attention due to the fundamental goal of medical intervention in diagnostics and follow-up. BCG is particularly suitable for the study of heart failure, which a recent study has shown. The results of this working group shall be validated and reproduced with another study trial. Therefore, acceleration sensor prototypes will be placed on various parts of the patient's body and be connected to a computer unit, which allows a high data quality and high signal resolution. A temporal shift of only 20 ns ensures real-time measurement of BCG parameters. The reference measurement will be done with a 12-channel ECG. The study will include patients with heart failure. All conducted tests take place as part of the diagnostic-therapeutic routine. The only change in the procedure concerns the additional equipment with the measuring sensors. The results will be the validation of the data from the other working group, as well as the information about the choice of sensors and clock frequency, the measuring points and the needed features for early detection of heart failure in BCG signals.
