Make a DIY Heart Monitor

Apr 09, 2016

Healthcare – everyone needs it. In a time when the population are increasingly self aware about their health, it is necessary to be prepared at every stage. Taking care of the heart is the first step in any health care regime. To know how a heart is functioning, you need to monitor its progress regularly.

At this workshop, we explored the different ways in which a heart rate can be measured. We explained how the Arduino can also be used as a reliable heart monitor especially in a Smart Home Environment comprised of multiple sensors connected by Arduino. We went on to build the actual device and show the audience how the Heart Monitor works and how to incorporate it into your Smart Home dashboard.
