Short duration ECG signals are recorded from a healthy 25-year-old male performing different physical activities to study the effect of motion artifacts on ECG signals and their sparsity.

For each measurement, 4 pairs of electrodes built into a single patch are placed on the subject. The electrodes are arranged at 45-degree offsets as shown below:

[Positions of electrodes in the patch]

The patch itself is also placed at multiple orientations relative to the body:

[Position of electrode patch on the body]

Each recording contains four signals (ECG 1 to ECG 4) corresponding to the four pairs of electrodes.
