Biosignals facilitate an objective diagnosis of health status and provide an objective feedback for personalized therapy. A huge diversity of electric biosignals exists, including permanent and induced biosignals, which can be modelled with a simple electrical circuit. Multiple physiological parameters are usually extracted from a single electric biosignal that forms multiparametric monitoring.
