This paper describes subband dependent adaptive shrinkage function that generalizes hard and soft shrinkages proposed by Donoho and Johnstone (1994). The proposed new class of shrinkage function has continuous derivative, which has been simulated and tested with normal and abnormal ECG signals with added standard Gaussian noise using MATLAB. The recovered signal is visually pleasant compared with other existing shrinkage functions. The implication of the proposed shrinkage function in denoising and data compression is discussed.
