General Information

biopeaks is a straightforward graphical user interface for feature extraction from electrocardiogram (ECG), photoplethysmogram (PPG) and breathing biosignals. It processes these biosignals semi-automatically with sensible defaults and offers the following functionality:

  • processes files in the open biosignal formats EDF, OpenSignals (Bitalino) as well as plain text files (.txt, .csv, .tsv)
  • interactive biosignal visualization
  • biosignal segmentation
  • benchmarked, automatic extrema detection (R-peaks in ECG, systolic peaks in PPG, exhalation troughs and inhalation peaks in breathing signals) with signal-specific, sensible defaults
  • automatic state-of-the-art artifact correction for ECG and PPG extrema
  • manual editing of extrema
  • extraction of instantaneous features: (heart- or breathing-) rate and period, as well as breathing amplitude
  • .csv export of extrema and instantaneous features for further analysis (e.g., heart rate variability)
  • automatic analysis of multiple files (batch processing)

GUI

Installation

biopeaks can be installed from PyPI:

pip install biopeaks

Alternatively, on Windows, download biopeaks.exe and run it. Running the executable does not require a Python installation.

You can find more details on the installation here.
