Auscultation is a standard medical practice performed by clinicians when inspecting a patient during preliminary examinations. Auscultation is usually performed by using the stethoscope to listen to the body sounds. Wearable technology can automatize listening to body sounds and make the long-term monitoring of the digestion possible.
The goal of this work is to examine the digestion in healthy individuals by analyzing the digestive sounds produced in the abdomen.


The project aims to analyze digestive sounds characteristics in healthy individuals.
