The contactless mechanocardiography (MCG) device is a hand-held contactless heart monitoring device to be used for heart monitoring at home, in hospitals and in other secured environments. Cardiovascular diseases (CD) are currently the first leading cause of death in North America, and the elderly population of British Columbia is increasing rapidly, so we strongly believe that this device can help improve overall health care monitoring. This apparatus can detect the subjec t's heart signal without any contact with the subject's body. At a distance of up to 30 cm, this device is capable of detecting the heart's signal. It can operate through a mattress, wall or other barriers. The received vital sign signal is simultaneously shown on the device's display.
