Abstract: Heart Rate (HR) is a fore most parameter for the analysis of a patient’s physiological conditions. Since the existing prototype using wearable sensor estimating the HRV during daily activity causes irritation and disturbance to the patient, this work deals with contact free photoplethysmography (PPG) that gives various benefits over contact methods. It is a simpler, low-cost and more popular method providing comfort, convenience and minimized risk of infection in medical applications. In this work, use the contact free method that measures the heart rate of a patient using an electro-optic technique. From Heart rate, corrupted PPG signal (MA) is identified and reduce using five tap Filter.
