e-Health Sensor Platform for Arduino and Raspberry Pi by Cooking Hacks

e-Health Sensor Platform for Arduino and Raspberry Pi by Cooking Hacks | STEM | Scoop.it

The e-Health Sensor Shield allows Arduino and Raspberry Piusers to perform biometric and medical applications where body monitoring is needed by using 9 different sensors: pulse, oxygen in blood (SPO2), airflow (breathing), body temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), glucometer, galvanic skin response (GSR - sweating), blood pressure (sphygmomanometer) and patient position (accelerometer).

 

This information can be used to monitor in real time the state of a patient or to get sensitive data in order to be subsequently analysed for medical diagnosis. Biometric information gathered can be wirelessly sent using any of the 6 connectivity options available: Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth, 802.15.4 and ZigBeedepending on the application.

 

If real time image diagnosis is needed a camera can be attached to the 3G module in order to send photos and videos of the patient to a medical diagnosis center.

 

Data can be sent to the Cloud in order to perform permanent storage or visualized in real time by sending the data directly to a laptop or Smartphone. iPhone and Android applications have been designed in order to easily see the patient's information.

 

Check out http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/ehealth-sensors-complete-kit-biometric-medical-arduino-raspberry-pi.html to get a complete First Aid Kit for makers. ( You can also get the sensors separately)
