DEVELOPMENT OF A WEARABLE SYSTEM FOR MEASURING VITAL PARAMETERS

This research aims to create a low-cost wearable system for monitoring vital parameters (ECG, breathing rate, body temperature, GPS tracking…). Instrumentation available nowadays is expensive and forces hospitalization of the patient; by avoiding this, there is a great economical benefit.

Starting from commercial cardio belts, we designed a circuit which can record a 1-lead ECG track which is then sent to a smartphone, the core of the system, by an audio cable. From ECG, it is possible to get data about patient’s breathing rate and, using a double modulated signal, his body temperature. In addition to this, a 3-axis accelerometer track is analyzed, to keep track of the body posture of the patient.

This information are stored in the smartphone memory, and periodically sent to a storage Cloud.
