We introduce in this section concepts about the main subjects discussed in this chapter. More specifically, we present concepts related to the Electrogastrography (EGG) examination, EGG systems and Proteus Virtual System Modelling (VSM).

Key Terms in this Chapter

Characteristic EGG Signal: A sample waveform that represents the characteristics of the EGG signal.

Electrogastrography (EGG) Examination: A technique used to record the gastric activity from the stomach.

Electrogastrography Simulation Device: A device used to simulate the behavior of the characteristic EGG signals.

Biomedical Signal Acquisition System: The use of set of biomedical instrumentation tools in order to perform the biomedical signal acquisition from the human body.

Proteus Virtual System Modelling (VSM): A design suit composed of a set of tools used to develop and simulation of electronic circuits.

Undesired Noise: A set of signals that modifies the characteristic of the signal and make difficult the analysis of the signal characteristics.

Electrogastrography (EGG) System: Device or a set of devices used to acquire biomedical signals from the stomach and also perform safety verifications.
