Hi Everyone, I faced a problem to apply Wavelet for denoising ECG Signal I know there are three steps you have to do which are :
1. Transform the noisy ECG signal to wavelet domain for finding DWT coefficients of each level (sub band).
2. Apply thresholding to obtain the estimated wavelet coefficients for each level. It is possible to use different thresholding functions.
3. Reconstruct the denoised ECG signal from the estimated wavelet coefficients by inverse DWT.but I am still cnofifusing please I am looking for you help.
my code is :
y1=S.sig209;
nsig = awgn(y1,15);
sig1=y1+nsig;
[CA,CD] = wavedec(sig1,5,'sym7');
P = thselect(CA,'rigrsure');
CA= wthresh(CA,'s',P);
Csig = idwt(CA,CD,'sym7');

Just how smooth do you want it? Can't you just try adjusting some input parameters to control the noise reduction? I don't have the wavelet toolbox so I can't really help anymore.

The Wavelet Toolbox has a demo on Denoising and Compression that I recommend. I don’t have sufficient experience with wavelets at this point to provide a definitive answer.

ISNR=15;
y1=S.sig209;
nsig = awgn(y1,ISNR);
sig1=y1+nsig;
OPsig=wden(sig1,'rigrsure','s','sln',6,'sym7');
[CA,CD] = wavedec(OPsig,6,'sym7');
A=CA;
P = thselect(CA,'rigrsure');
CA = wthresh(CA,'h',P);
AA=CA;
Csig = waverec(CA,CD,'sym7');
what is y1=S.sig209; this mean

1. thresholding function is applied only on details coefficients
2. you can use another thresholding function as semi-soft,soft, garrote, hard ,hyperbolic
3. you can change threshold value ...there is more than one technique,depending on your noise: baseline, power line, muscle noise...

will you provide me SNR , PSNR, MSE, PSD matlab code to denoise the a noisy signal

ISNR=15;
y1=S.sig209;
nsig = awgn(y1,ISNR);
sig1=y1+nsig;
OPsig=wden(sig1,'rigrsure','s','sln',6,'sym7');
[CA,CD] = wavedec(OPsig,6,'sym7');
A=CA;
P = thselect(CA,'rigrsure');
CA = wthresh(CA,'h',P);
AA=CA;
Csig = waverec(CA,CD,'sym7');
In this following program could you explain me thsi line y1=S.sig209;
what is sig209 mean??

Will provide me the signal to noise ratio code
