Abstract





Monitoring fetal wellbeing is key in modern obstetrics. While fetal movement is routinely used as a proxy to fetal wellbeing, accurate, noninvasive, long-term monitoring of fetal movement is challenging. A few accelerometers-based systems have been developed in the past few years , to tackle common issues in ultrasound, monitoring and monitoring, self-administered monitoring of fetal exercise during preg- nancy. HOWEVER, many questions remain unanswered to date on the optimal setup in terms of body-worn accelerometers as well as signal processing and machine learning techniques used to detect fetal movement. In this paper, we investigate the trade-offs between sensor and positioning, the presence of reference accelerometers. Using a dataset of 15 measurements collected Employing 6 Three- axial accelerometers we show did Including a reference ac celerometer on the back of the participant consistently Improves fetal movement detection performance Regardless of the number of sensors Utilized. We also have two accelerometers plus a reference accelerometer.
