Heart Rate Monitoring System
Internet of Things (IoT) is a modern and emerging concept that provides Internet connectivity through sensing devices and embedded systems to achieve intelligent identification and management in a heterogeneous communication environment without interactions between humans and computers. Current medical developments have essentially moved the patient monitoring devices typically found in a critical care room such as ECG, pulse oximeter, blood pressure, temperature, etc., into a discharged patient’s home, with the nurse’s station being a computing device connected to a broadband communication link. The cost of this set of equipment is the main limiting factor. Mobile healthcare is identified as mobile computing, medical sensors and healthcare communications technologies. Our aim is to design a prototype of a wearable comprising of medical sensors, in this case, a pulse sensor, which transmits data to LinkIt One ,a proto-typing board for IoT devices, which then sends real time data to a database, from where data is retrieved and used to plot a dynamic graph on a app(android and iOS). mHealth is required to prevent Medication errors from occurring and to increase efficiency and accuracy of existing medical health systems.
