The feasibility of measuring stress-related parameters by ultra-short variability (USV) indices calculated from the ballistocardiographic signal acquired by the mobile phone accelerometers (m-BCG) positioned on the navel was tested, and its accuracy compared with gold standard ECG-derived indices. The m-BCG was acquired in six healthy volunteers while in supine position, during spontaneous breathing (CTRL) and during 1 minute of mental stress (MS) induced by arithmetic serial subtraction task. Beat occurrence was independently and automatically extracted from both ECG and m-BCG signals, to compute USV parameters in 30 s intervals, during both the CTRL and MS. Linear regression and Bland-Altman analyses between RR series and m-BCG derived beat-to-beat measurements (JJ series) showed very high correlation (r2>0.97), no bias, and narrow limits of agreement (Â±2SD < Â±34 ms) for both CTRL and MS. A significant decrease (p=0.03 Wilcoxon test) in beat duration, SDNN and RMSSD was found in MS compared to CTRL, in both RR and JJ variability series, underlying the ability of m-BCG in capturing the decrease in parasympathetic tone in agreement with the induced stimulus.
