This paper provides first experimental results on two methods for non-conductive monitoring of heart and lung activity that bear the potential for mobile application in a personal healthcare scenario. Specifically, the paper reports on the techniques and on some preliminary results for magnetic bioimpedance monitoring and capacitive ECG recording. Draw-backs and limitations of these methods as well as future work to improve these techniques are discussed.
