Abstract: The fetal heart signal is one of the important parameter to monitor during gestational period. It provides information regarding fetal stress condition and oxygen availability in organs. With wearable fetal monitoring system it is possible to monitor the overall health condition of the fetus from home. The paper discusses a prototype fetal ECG monitoring system that can be used by pregnant mother to monitor fetal wellbeing and transmit the data to a remote monitoring station to obtain opinion. The conventional fetal ECG monitoring system uses a gel-based electrode to acquire the signal, which cannot be used for long duration monitoring. The proposed system discusses a dry electrodes made of a textile material which does not use the gels to record the ECG signals.
Keywords: Fetal ECG, Textile Electrode, Artifacts, Adaptive Filter.
